I've written before about my first cousin, 4X removed, Jonathan Wilson Callaway.

I think I'd like to have known him in real life, but I expect we may not have gotten on. I just bet Jonathan preferred demure women whose opinions mirrored his own.

Anyway, I figured from the date of the purchase of cemetery plots at Oakland & Fraternal Historic Cemetery Park by his widow that Jonathan probably died in May 1894.

So it was good to stumble upon the letters of administration from his estate in the Clark Co., AR probate books.

He died on 2 May 1894, the same day Annie Vickers bought the plots at Oakland.

I've updated his Find a Grave memorial.
