Calloways of Surry County, North Carolina

These records go from the 1770’s to the 1860’s.

We post these data online to help researchers.

Please click on Joseph Calloway, Francis Calloway and Frances Gaddah, and Samuel Calloway and Mary.

They are in the following categories:

  1. Marriages
  2. Land Grants, Deeds or Patents
  3. Court Records
  4. Tax Lists

Finally, we provide the references.

Samuel Callaway is our direct line, but he has a son of the same name (not our direct line), so we didn’t sort them out. The reader can do that. These are the raw data, instead.

Francis is Samuel’s father, and he appears in these records a few times.
