RE: Gartin Callaway's children additions
Hi Cousin, Wow, that's really interesting. I will certainly look for this info on Lizzie Sheets and James Callaway. Thank goodness for google!
I've been on the Callaway Family Assoc. page a number of times over the years and have always found it so interesting.... so much info about our family. A lot of work involved in that and it's really been useful. I've actually submitted some info to them about the Izzard family and they were grateful to have it.
I hope all is well with you. Thanks again for all your good info.
Cousin JJ

PS. Hope we get some rain here--it's been dry as a bone!

RE: Gartin Callaway's children additions
Hi Cousin, This is all so interesting about your family!

Being early settlers of Canada, they must have had a lot of hard work to do. They're tough, strong people.

I looked for Lizzie Sheets in my files yesterday and couldn't find her either. I also like to work on auxiliary lines and have found much interesting info. What you've given has been most helpful.

The only reference I have for Lizzie is from the Fulton Co marriage index, showing that she married a James Callaway. I'm not quite sure who this James is either, just that he must be a relative somehow.

I suppose we'll always have bits and pieces that we'll never be able to figure out. That's all part of the fun, haha.

I hope you have a wonderful day and please keep in touch. Let me know if you need anything further--will help if I can.
Cousin JJ

PS. Yes, I am very proud of Jabez, my great-great grandpa. My grandpa, John Harding, was very fascinated with him. It was his research on Jabez that led me to the North Carolina Robbins family.

RE: Gartin Callaway's children additions
There are findagrave memorials that I put up to James and Deborah Bacon Callaway. As for Elizabeth Sheets, that name does sound very familiar, but I'll have to check some family files. It was so much easier to do all this before I lost my computer files.
Anyway, here's my descent from Charles Callaway:

Mary Jane Callaway, b March 5, 1825 Decatur County, IN, married Jabez IZZARD (see memorial on findagrave) Sept. 10, 1842 Fulton Co, IN, died April 21, 1917 Fulton Co. Both Jabez and Mary have memorials on findagrave

Their daughter Mary Olive Izzard, born Feb. 11, 1860 Fulton Co, married William H. HARDING Dec. 25, 1877 Miami Co, IN, died July 21, 1937 Fulton Co. Both William and Mary Olive have memorials on findagrave

William and Mary Jane's son ( my maternal grandpa) John Joseph Harding, born Sep 22, 1898 Miami Co, IN, married Georgia VOORHIS June 16, 1923 Lake Co, IN, died Feb. 22, 1975 Lake Co.

Their daughter ( my mother) Virginia Mae Harding, born June 22, 1928 Howard Co, IN, married Byrl Coppinger living.

Hope this helps.
I'll get back with you on Elizabeth Sheets.
Best wishes,

RE: Gartin Callaway's children additions
Hello again,
Thanks for your kind offer. I haven't really lost any paper files on the Callaway family--thank goodness I saved those.I have huge folders full of marriage licenses, obits, wills, and bios.

What I am missing tho, is Family Tree Maker's app that lets you show descendancy from a certain individual. The only way to get that back would be to install FTM on my new computer. I haven't done that yet!

I had over 5,000 names on my old FTM database, that I lost. --the Callaways and a number of other families. I'm just not sure if I have the heart to redo all that work, lol.

Thanks too, for the additions to Charles Callaway's family. He is in my direct line.

Wishing you all the best,
Cousin JJ

RE: Gartin Callaway's children additions
Hello,Thanks so much for this very interesting info. For the longest time, I've known so little about the Canadian branch of this family.

I'm sorry to say that I lost a good deal of my work on this family ( and other lines) due to a flood 4 years ago. I've tried to get most of the paperwork back and am still working on it, in bits and pieces. But my computer files are gone and I just don't have the heart to redo all that work.Thank goodness I had a lot of the computer work backed up on paper but I don't have any way to tie in the various auxiliary lines.

I would most appreciate anything else you may have on this line.
Thank you.
