when quite a girl. My name is
Sally Caloway and mother's was
Judy Caloway. Mother died when
I was about five years old. I am a
twin child, the boy died. I left
three brothers, William, Washing-
ton [Washington] and Jerry. My sister's names
are Harriet and Jane. Harriet be-
longed [belonged] to Billis Leftridge. Jane
belonged to Jim Taylor, who had a
son named Sealt Taylor. After
James Caloway died we were di-
vided [divided], and I became the servant of
his son, Tom Caloway. My third
owner was Chatten Pollet, of the
same county and State. My uncle's
name was George Caloway; he
died on the railroad. Aunt's name
