Callahan Genealogy

Family history of Barbara Fritchman Thompson

 

The Callahan connection to my ancestry is through my mother's side of the family.

Isaac Callahan is my great, great, grandfather which is as far back as I have been able to go to this point.

If you have any information related to the Callahan lines I have posted, please e-mail me.

 

HISTORY

The exact year that a Callahan came to Bladen County to establish a family is somewhat a mystery since the earlier records are lost. I have wills and deeds that do establish the later generations of Callahan's owning land in the county. Earlier generations supposedly lived in the Carver's Creek area. Many of them are buried in the Mount Horeb Presbyterian Church.

Isaac had two sons who served in the Civil War. One was captured at Fort Fisher and later died in a prison camp in Elmira, NY. The younger son, also serving at Fort Fisher, was a drummer and supposedly took his drum and went home without being granted leave. 

David Harris had a son killed in WWI.
