William Hemphill Callaway "Big Bill"
His obituary, as printed in the Southern Standard, 10 Feb 1899, page 3, col. 4:
"Callaway, W H, died at his residence Wednesday night at 11 o'clock. He had been in feeble heath for several months. At the time of his death he was the coroner of this county. He was one of the oldest native citizens of the county, being in his 72nd year of age. He was somewhat of a remarkable character, and had a remarkable memory and could relate more early history of the county than probably any other citizen. "Big Bill" as he was called by his firends will be greatly missed on the streets."

William Arnett Callaway "Little Bill"
His obit from the Southern Standard, 2 Apr 1887:
"Callaway, William Arnott, died at his residence in Arkadelphia on the night of the 29th ult., County and Probate Judge of Clark Co., at the age of 63, after a lingering illness of rheumatic paralysis. The funeral services at his late residence on Wednesday afternoon, were officed by Rev. John McLauchlan, past of the Methodist Church of this place...Rose Hill Cemetery."

James Lawson Callaway
His obituary, as published in the Southern Standard, 7 Dec 1888, page 3, col. 4:
"Callaway, James L. Dr., of Hollywood, died very suddenly last Monday of paralysis of the heart. He had gone to the residence of Uncle Dick Wilson Monday morning to transact some business, and not finding Mr. Wilson at home, decided to wait for his return, but the time for his return had passed, and mounting his horse, started for home, but had gone but a few paces when he suddenly fell from his horse dead, and Mrs. Wilson hurriedly advanced to where he had fallen, stricken with death. We understand Dr. Callaway had been troubled with heart disease for some time. Dr. Callaway was well known here having been here all his life. His ancestors were among the first settlers of this county in the long ago."

Emily Ida Callaway
Her obituary, as published in the Southern Standard, 16 Aug 1873, page 2, col 6:
"Callaway, Emily Ida, died, daughter of W A and Emily L Callway, was born Sept. 1 1872 and died Aug. 10, 1873...for the eighth time, death has made requisition upon this home circle."
