J.W. CALLAWAY, Farmer and stock-raiser, Sec. 16; P.O. Greenview; was born in Woodford Co., Ill., Jan. 9, 1838, to which county his parents removed in 1837. In 1846, they came to Menard Co., where our subject has since resided. He passed his youth and early manhood on his father's farm and received such education as the schools of that early day afforded. On the braking-out of the rebellion he enlisted in Company A., 10th I.V.C., and served four years and eight months. He was in all the battles in which the "brave old Tenth" was engaged. There are a few men who saw so much service and escaped without a wound. He was united in marriage to Sarah A. Glaspy Dec. 5, 1868. She was born in Morgan Co., Ill., April 4, 1850. From this union there are four children - Leonard, George, Edwin and Harry E. Mr. Callaway is a stanch Republican in politics, and owns eighty acres of nicely improved land and is, in the fullest sense of the word, a self-made man.
