family coat of arms

Information from the Craig family bible has been generously provided by a Craig cousin that reveals a lot about the Attaway family. The father of John William, Nancy Emmer, and Sallie Attaway was John T. C. Attaway; and according to family consensus, the “C” must have stood for “Carlton.” To take it one step further, J.W. Attaway’s first child named a son “Thomas Carlton,” which suggests that the father of J. W. Attaway was named John Thomas Carlton Attaway. The same cousin has also provided a copy of Sallie Craig’s death certificate, which confirms the trail that the census records lead us to. Thanks to another cousin in Sallie Craig’s line, we now have a copy of a 150 year old marriage license for John T C Attaway and Belinda Beck. We have found J. W. Attaway’s mother Sisly in the 1850 census along with his father’s brother, William.
