Callaway of Bedford and Campbell Counties

Richard Callaway of Virginia helped Daniel Boone to settle the fort at Boonesboro. Unfortunately while erecting a ferry, he was scalped by Indians; his body was taken to the fort where it was buried.  Left: The Peaks of Otter in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Richard Callaway's home was near the bottom.

A genealogy is available to members of virginiapioneers.net
and includes photographs and a movie of the old reconstructed Boonesboro Fort.
