Martin P. Calaway, an old resident farmer and minister of the Baptist Church, was born in Georgia, May 2, 1835. His father, Martin K. Calaway, was born in Jasper County, Ga. where he was raised and married to Miss Eliza Smith, a native of the same county, by whom he had ten children - seven boys and three girls - eight of whom - six boys and two girls - are living. Mr. Calaway died in Calhoun County, Ark., in May, 1858. His widow died in September, 1887. His parents came to this county in 1847, when the subject of this sketch was but twelve years of age. Mr. Calaway, our subject, now owns a good, well-improved farm of 160 acres, about sixty acres under cultivation. He has been a member of the Masonic order since 1865, and has taken the degree of Royal Arch Mason. Himself and wife and all his children, except three, are members of the Baptist Church. He is the father of ten children, viz: Lucinda E (wife of W. A. Quillan), Eliza C (wife of William Mosley), James A, Pinkney N, Nancy J (wife of Mr. Underwood), Columbia A. (wife of W. O. Thomason), Mary C (wife of G. W. Sindle), Laura V. (wife of N. P. Johnson), Thomas J. and George M. Mr. Calaway has preached the gospel for over thirty years. He organize3d the Mount Pleasant Church in Huey Township, near where he resides, and was the first minister of this church, over which he presided until 1885, when he was succeeded by Rev. L. O. Myers. He is a good, honest citizen, and resides about ten miles north of the county seat. (Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Southern Arkansas - Goodspeed Publishing Company - 1890)
