**********

Hank was a child born to Obera (Moore) and Charles Calhoun. Born in N.Y., his family (including 90 year old grandpa, Jared) relocated to Iowa in 1870 to farm and raise sheep. His Mom died when they got to Iowa and his Dad remarried Alma. He lived with an Aunt for a while and at age 14 left Iowa and headed WEST. He spent his first winter in South Dakota working on a ranch for Teddy Rosevelt. He "cowboyed" on several ranches and collected several life long friends, ending up in Columbus, Montana. There he met and married Mary Lavelle. They settled in Columbus and started a Livery Stable with his brother in law W P Adams. He also raised cattle.


He and Mary had 5 children;


Cecilia Francis 1893 - 1900
John Clarence 1895 - 1969
Bernard Patrick 1897 - 1963
Francis Henry 1906 - 1973
Ruth Lavelle 1908 - 1949


He held several offices including Justice of the Peace. He loved the new "cars" and when stables were no longer needed he opened "the American Garage" with his son John selling tires and accessories and doing maintence on cars.
