Kingham of Smith county, Kans. Owen, Ebb and Caleb Callam of Pawnee City, and Albert Callam of DuBois. Mary Elizabeth died in infancy and Mrs. Eva Koegele died a few years ago.
Mrs. Callam was a member of the Baptist church in England and was a lifelong reader and student of the bible.
She and her husband came directly from England to Lincoln, Nebr., in 1872, and moved from there to Pawnee county in 1873. The home has been here for more than 49 years. They knew all the joys and privations of pioneer life.
Her husband died in 1912, and since that time she has walked the lonely path of widowhood, finding companionship with her children. She leaves a number of grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. The bereaved family has the sympathy of many friends and neighbors.
