Birth: 1833, Ireland
Death: May 14, 1908
Montgomery County
Kansas, USA

Mrs. Owen O'Callahan died very suddenly at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon at her home on East Myrtle street.

Rose Givens was born on shipboard when her parents were emigration to America from Ireland, and moved to Chicago with his parents when quite young.

She was married to Owen O'Callahan in Lake County, Illinois, in 1849, and came to Kansas in 1873, the pair settling on a farm in Montgomery county where they lived until moving to Independence in 1884. Her husband died in Nov. 1900.

Mrs. Callahan was 76 years old last March and was the mother of eleven children, ten of whom survive her. 1) Thomas of Independence, 2) James and 3) John of Nevada. 4) Daniel of Paso Robles, California, 5) Peter of Watsonville, Cal., 6) Charlie of Pond Creek, Okla., 7) Ed of Fairfax, Okla., 8) Frank of Anadarko, Okla., and 9) Maggie of this city. Frank Callahan arrived at noon and his wife and Mr. Ed. Callahan and wife are expected tomorrow. Miss Maggie was called to California about a month ago to care for her brother, Dan's motherless children and a dispatch received from her this afternoon conveyed the intelligence that she would not reach here in time for the funeral.

Mrs. Callahan was known to nearly all the old-time residents of the town and wherever known loved for her sweet and sunny manner.

The funeral will be held from the Catholic church some time, Saturday morning, the hour to be announced later.
