THE WESTERN STAR, 6 December 1901
Parham Callaway
Callaway - On Sunday, December 1, 1901, at his home in Louisville, Kentucky, Parham Callaway, aged 83 years, 3 months and 10 days.

Grandfather Callaway was known to many Comanche co. people, having spent a few years in this county with his son, R. A. Callaway, proprietor of the St. Nicholas hotel of this city. Four other sons are still living, all of whom make their home in Louisville, and with these the father made his home for the most of the time, his wife having died 26 years ago. Grandfather Callaway retained his health and strength to a remarkable degree for one of his age. His Comanche co, friends remember
him only a few years ago as a sprightly and exceedingly jovial man of nearly four-score years. He was always inclined to look upon the bright side of life, and thus his disposition was sunny and inspiring to all who came in contact with him. He was much attached to his family and gave the best years of his life laboring for their welfare. His sickness was of several weeks duration. It was known for some time that the end was near, but death brought no fear nor regrets. He was prepared to die - his faith was anchored to an ever-living Savior. Thus, at 7:27 on last Sunday morning a long and eventful life was ended and the devoted sons were left to mourn the death of a kind father and this world deprived of a most worthy citizen.
