RE: Annie Meredith Callahan
You can certainly add your grandmother's obituary.

I was wondering if you would like for me to transfer her to you also. Do let me know, and I will be glad to do that.

RE: Minnie Callahan

Thanks again! I loved my Aunt Minnie dearly (and Uncle Harry. Johnny's daughter Chritie and I were close as kids, and we used to visit them a lot when we were kids, I didn't even realize that Johnny had passed, although I've thought of him often over the years.

I have a family tree on, as well as my work here; and as I said, if there is any information that I have acess to that you might find helpful, please give me a shout.

Looks like we have a few reqaltives in common, and I appreciate your entries here. My father (Archie Henry Harvey, Jr.) was Minnie Harvey Callahan's brother. She was the oldest child in the family, my dad was the second oldest and the only boy.

Thanks again for your good work on here and if there is any possibility that I would have any information that might be helpful to you, please feel free to contact me.

These people are my folks. My grandmothers people. But -One of Burt's sons was Robert. My great great grandfather. Would you happen to have any info or would you know ANYthing that would be interesting for me to know about him? All I know of great grandpa Charles (Roberts son) is that he is buried in Reidlawn. (same as granny Ruby & Papa Clyde and others) But anything about Robert & Great grandpa Charles that you may know woul dreally make my day. If you have any photos please - I ask you humbly- to share them. I hope you and your family are having a good Holiday so far. Have a great Christmas ans thank you again for helping me learn more about my family. Peace & blessings. ~Stacy

Thank you ever so much for the headstone of the Luck and Handy Family. I probably would not never seen them, if you had not taken the time to take the pictures.

Thanks again and God Bless,

Thank you
Thanks, Linda, for referring me to this site. I enjoy looking at it. It was good to see you and Peggy at the reunion yesterday. We had some good food, didn't we?

RE: Baby Boy Gibbs
You are referring to Baby Gibbs at Danview Cemetery? Hope so, because I added his parents to that memorial. Did his father die in the war?

Joel's Obituary
I just had an idea. If you go to the main Greensboro libary downtown, they have all of the old newspapers on microfilm. You should be able to look his obituary up from one of the newspapers that came out a day or two after he died.

RE: Joel Walsie Callahan
Genealogy Bank won't let me put in a first name. (Isn't that crazy???) But I looked thru all of the Callahans that came up in NC, and he didn't appear to be there. Sometimes I can't put in a date, either. So you see how messed up their search feature is. They should make it so that we can put in full names, and dates.

I was really lucky to find Jabez---which only had his initials, but I found him by the month and year of his death. I haven't been able to get Joel at all. (Even tried Walsie---but they won't let me put the first name.)

RE: Joel Walsie Callahan
I haven't been able to find a thing about him. Those newspapers are very disappointing in most cases. Another Joel Callahan kept popping up. A Maj. Joel T. Callahan had a lot of articles about him because of his job (I think in the Army Corps of Engineers).

Genealogy Bank doesn't have any of the smaller town newspapers---mostly those from the larger cities. But Joel's obituary should be in at least the Greensboro paper, and maybe the Winston-Salem papers. The thing is that they don't have all of those--or if they do, they don't always have a way of finding what needs to be found. They need to come up with a better way---and to include all of the papers.

I went ahead and added an entry for Eliphalet Callahan from his Civil War records. But since I don't know where he was buried, he's in an "unknown" place of burial. If you ever want me to transfer the Callahan entries to you, just let me know.

I deleted mine although the tombstone says Calahan and that's why I did the duplicate. Thanks Nan

Not directly. Her dau. Vivian married my uncle Paul. Her son Bobby & I were boyhood buddies. They lived behind our home on Scott St.

Thank you again Linda. I will change it back. She was a very special lady to me and I want to be sure we get it right.

RE: Fuchsia Edna Calahan Jones
Glad to honor your request Linda. Also added that extra "L".

Added by billy on Sep 25, 2012 6:58 PM

For her, you will need to contact the person who added her to Find A Grave, and ask them to connect her to her parents. Find A Grave programming won't let me add someone else's entry to their parents.

To do this--go to the "edit" block at the top and click on that. It will automatically take you to an area where you can type in your request to whoever put her in. Just be sure to tell him her father's name and entry number, and her mother's name and entry number.

It makes it easier for them so that they don't have to search for her.

Added by SleepingDog on Sep 25, 2012 10:55 AM

I See The Problem
I'm sorry. It was me that messed up. I left out the extra "d" in your name in your email address.

I'll get that information to you ASAP---especially the picture and Levi's place of burial.

Added by SleepingDog on Sep 25, 2012 4:08 AM

Your Email Address
Yesterday I sent you some things that didn't go thru to the email address that you gave me. (At least three of them). I don't know what happened, but these are things I know you would want. I found that everything had bounced back to me this morning.

I've found Levi Callahan--and also a picture of one of Levi's daughter's family in Tennessee. It is of the whole family. She was Alcy or Alcey Ann Callahan Coffie. Levi was dead when the picture was taken, but his wife is in the picture with her daughter, Alcey Ann--the daughters husband---their children and some grandchildren. It's a really neat picture. And the person who added the picture to Alcey's Find A Grave entry is probably a relative or yours.

Levi died in Tennessee. I can't understand why your email address didn't work because it looks like a good address to me.

RE: Joel John Callahan
This Joel is buried at buried at Gabriel's Creek Baptist Church in Madison Co., North Carolina. He died in 1924.

I'm really disappointed to have to tell you that I've been searching the newspapers for more Callahan obituaries, etc., and haven't found a thing pertaining to any of the ones you named as being Jabez's brothers.

I looked in Rootsweb, and found where somebody had entered Jabez as one of his relatives, so I emailed him to tell him where Jabez is buried, because he didn't know. Outside of that, I've had no luck so far. I think most of the brothers could have died a really long time ago or in other states--or maybe in the Civil War.

Added by SleepingDog on Sep 24, 2012 3:25 PM

Joel John Callahan
This brother is already in Find A Grave with a picture. He does resemble Jabez. I've tried to find his death certificate, but didn't have any luck.

Wish I could find where the parents are buried so all of them can be connected.

Callahan Brothers
I'd love to be able to find more of Jabez's family. It would help to know the names of his parents and their other children. But there's no guarantee.

I do this because I think it's fun. (It's my hobby). I can tell you are fairly new at this, and don't have a lot of experience dealing with some of the people on Find A Grave. But don't let anyone discourage you. There are some people who have taken it upon themselves to be "Find A Grave cops", and can be very rude at times. There's really no need for anyone to be be that way, because everything can be fixed. And we all make mistakes (even the ones who would like to think they are perfect).

I'll see what I can find in the census records, etc. And maybe Genealogy Bank will turn up some more Callahans.
