"Callaway" women have been part of history every step of the way! Celebrate by gathering your "C/K" family history and then - share it with us! What happened to the "Callaway" Women?
In honor of Women's History Month, the following short biographies tell us something about the lives of several "Callaway" women. L. D. Moore, attorney at law, Macon, Ga., was born in Forsyth, Ga., September 11, 1856, and is a son of Rev. David H. and Susan Calloway Moore. The father was a native of South Carolina, and for a number of years was a preacher of the Baptist denomination. He died in the year 1885. The mother of our subject was born in Wilkes County, Ga., a daughter of Edward Calloway, who was a planter by occupation. These parents had born to them seven children - Lizzie, Kingman P., Virginia S., Laura L., Atlas S., Milton J. and L. D., all of whom are yet living. L. D. Moore, the subject of this sketch, received the benefits of a common school education, and subsequently engaged in farming, which vocation he followed until 1877. In December of that year he opened a drug store in Knoxville, Ga., and in his leisure hours read law, and in 1878 was admitted to the bar. He then commenced the practice of law in Knoxville, remaining there until April, 1884, when he came to Macon, and has since followed his profession in this city with gratifying success.
