Micajah Callaway fought in the Revolutionary War. He was one of the Fort Boone settlers. Micajah was captured by indians along with Daniel Boone and many others while manufacturing salt on the lower Blue Licks on the Licking River near Boonesboro, Ky. He was adopted by the Indians and for a time was the chief of scouts.

Micajah Callaway was a name known and feared by the tribes that wandered Indiana and surrounding parts, it was said that if a band of Indians caught wind that Micajah was going to be any where near where they were they would go 50 miles out of thier way to avoid running into this fierce warrior!

Micajah Callaway is also listed as one of the earliest pioneers of Washington Co. Indiana. where he died at 92yrs. and is buried today (Peugh Cemetery, Washington County, Indiana).[1]
