Further coincidences from the CR&A universe.

      Yet more coincidences relating to the character of Adele Calloway, her name, and fictional family.

      I'll point out once more that the name "Adele Calloway" simply popped into my head one day, in November of 2012.

      Just now, I decided to look up the name Calloway.  It turns out to be not terribly uncommon in Texas, where Adele is from.  There are a number of place names, and business names containing Calloway, and it is also the name of an early community in Texas, which is now a ghost town.

      The name itself is claimed to be originally English, Irish, or French, depending on the source.  As for the name in the USA, one website lists:

                     Calloway Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

        William Calloway, who landed in Georgia in 1734

        Will Calloway, who settled in Georgia in 1744 with his wife                         Susannah

      This is significant because Adele's mother's family comes from Georgia, and having a familiar (so possibly Georgian) name could have been influential in their allowing their daughter to marry Adele's Texas born father.

      I'm very surprised at how these coincidences continue to pile up!
