This is a transcription of the obituary for Samuel Davis Callaway that appeared in the Southern Standard, June 6, 1907 (page 2 column 2) in Arkadelphia, Clark County, AR.
Sam. D. Callaway, death occurred at his home at Gurdon last Saturday, June the first, interred at South Fork cemetery on Sunday. He was born in Arkadelphia in 1830 on the Jackson place one mile down river where Mr. Graydon now lives. His ancestors were noted in the early settlement of the county, as among the pioneers of ciivilization in Kenturcky, Missouri and Arkansas. He had filled the position of Surveyor of Clark County for many ytears and we don't suppose there was a better man in the county. He made a brave and gallant Confederate soldier.
