from "Notes and Queries: Historical, Biographical, and Genealogical, Relating Chiefly to Interior Pennsylvania" --
John was born January 17, 1791. He grew to manhood amid the wilds of Pine Creek and lived there for one hundred years. Like his father, he became a great fisherman and hunter. He married and raised a family of seven sons and six daughters, all of whom were living a few years ago but six. On the 17th of January, 1891, the anniversary of his one hundredth hear was celebrated at the residence of his daughter, Margaret, wife of Henry Gamble, also residing on Pine Creek. All of his six surviving children, except one daughter, living in Minnesota, were present at the anniversary. The occasion was notable, as well as a happy one, and was greatly enjoyed by the venerable patriarch and his descendants. At that time he had thirty-four grand and twenty-three great-grandchildren, nearly all of whom were present.

Mr. [John] Callahan did not live long after the celebration of this joyful event. He died suddenly, January 28, 1891, eleven days after he had completed his one hundredth year, and was buried among his kindred on Pine Creek.
---John of Lancaster, Williamsport, 1897.
