James Calaway/Callaway/Calloway Tipton born 1850-1855 (1855 may be the best one) in Tennessee. Both parents born in Tennessee. Found him married to a Rebecca Hunt in 1878 in Madison Co.,Alabama. they had one child Benjamin. Rebecca Hunt died in Alabama. James remarried to a Nettie Glover in Jackson co.,Alabama March 9, 1893.
They moved to Rockwall co.,Texas by 1900. They had 4 daughters - Jimmie,Winnie,Nannie, and another. Benjamin died between 1900 and 1910. By 1910 the family moved to Grayson Co.,Texas. Both James and Nettie died in the 1920s.
James seems to change his name every 10 years. In 1880 he is J.Calaway Tipton. In 1893 he is James C. Tipton. In 1920 he is Joseph C. Tipton. On his deaath certificate he is listed as Joe C. Tipton although the family says his name is James Calloway Tipton.
His Death Certificate say father is Calvin Tipton. This may be wrong as I have found booboos before on death certificates in my years of research.
