End Comes For Sam Callaway Monday Morning
Sam Callaway, a pioneer of central Iowa and widely known in the southwest potion of Grundy county, died at his home at Union Monday morning. He was 80 years old.
Mr. Callaway was stricken with paralysis following the death of his brotter Charley last fall and was unable to attend his brother's funeral. Due to his advanced years he was unable to recover from the effects of the stroke and his health declined gradually from that time until the end.
Funeral services were held at Union Wednesday afternoon. Burial was in Melrose cemetery.
Mr. Callaway was engaged in farming during his active life. He retired from the farm a few years ago to make his home in Union. He was born in Henry county, Ill., and came with his parents to this section over 70 years ago. He was a member of a family of seven sons and two daughters.
Surviving are the wife, two sons and two daughters. The sons are Chester from Jefferson, Iowa, and Arthur from Eldora. The daughters are Mrs. Hazel Beck and Mrs. Gladys Chalk from Union. There are five brothers and two sisters living. The brothers are Jim, Frank, Ed, Bert and John. The sisters are Alice Elliott from Pomona, Calif., and Mrs. Emma Wilkins from Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.
