Calloway Kelley (Wayne or Madison Co, Missouri)

In an 1846 lawsuit, Calloway Kelley was a witness for the plaintiff John Cravens against the defendant John L. Pettit. The case, tried in Wayne County, Missouri, involved a tract of land on the St. Francis River partly in Wayne County and partly in Madison County. The case eventually reached the Missouri Supreme Court. In the documentation is the notation: "Witness says he is the brother in law by marriage to John Cravens". I believe this means that the wife of Calloway Kelley and the wife of John Cravens (Elizabeth) were sisters. Since I don't know the maiden name of my gggg grandmother Elizabeth Cravens (b. 1803 NC), I'd obviously love to know the maiden name of Mrs. Kelley. Does anyone have any information on Calloway Kelley and his wife? I cannot find him on the 1840 or 1850 census in Missouri. Perhaps Calloway is his middle name.
