General Notes: Husband - James Callahan

The father or grandfather of James Hughes Callahan may have been named "Joshua Callahan". (source http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~nichols1836/allied_famil y_surnames/day_johnson.htm#callahan
========================================================================== ============
I believe the following:

Edward Callahan

James Callahan b. ca. 1777

John Callahan b. 1807

Nancy Callahan b. unknown

William Callahan b. 1811

James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 ( gr gr gr grandfather)

Mary Callahan b. ca 1822

Wesley T. b. ca. 1830

Sarah F. b. ca. 1833



I can prove this by DNA profiles of the Y chromosomes in male descendants. What I need are volunteers from the John Callahan b. 1807 branch, the William Callahan b. 1811 branch, and the James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 branch.



I have a lead to find a male volunteer descendant from the William Callahan b. 1811 branch.



My job is to find a male descendant volunteer from the James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 branch. I have several candidates. I believe I can convince one.



I understand you come from the John Callahan b. 1807 branch. Is this correct? If yes, I would look to you to find a male descendant volunteer. Is this possible?



I believe Nancy b. unknown is a daughter of John Callahan b. ca. 1877. In the probate of James Hughes Callahan b. 1814,two of his daughter were sent in 1860 to live with his older sister, Nancy Hamilton, Walker County, Ga. This brother-sister relation is more difficult to prove but possible by profiling the X mitochondrial chromosome. I will pursue this possibility. I have been outlining the Hamilton family and locating descendants.



I am certain that James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 is James Callahan's b. 1777 son and the brother of John Callahan b. 1807. There is quite a bit of documentation that John Callahan b. 1807 built and repaired carriages in Jefferson, Jackson, Ga.. These men were called mechanics.



James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 was born in Jefferson, Jackson County, Ga., according to his daughter Catherine Callahan. I have a copy of this letter; it is in the archives at the Alamo. James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 left Ga. In 1835 with the Georgia Battalion and fought the Mexican Army near Goliad. He was saved from the 1836 Goliad massacre because a Mexican general asked for men who were mechanics to repairs boats at Victoria, Texas. James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 was a mechanic trained by his father just like his brother John Callahan b. 1807.



William Callahan b. 1811 had a son named James Hughes Callahan b. 1840. This not a coincidence, I believe. Hopefully the family records and letters can document my belief.



James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 had a son names Wesley Hughes Callahan b. 1844. I believe he was named after his father younger brother Wesley T. b. ca. 1830. I propose this is not a coincidence. Do you know any Wesley T. descendants?



Back to the DNA profiling. I have a PhD in Cell Biology and am familiar with DNA profiles. I have been involved with the global McDonald DNA project. Ancestry.com explains this process. It can be performed under rules of confidentiality.



Let me know your thoughts.

================================================
TWhite36@aol.com

The excitement is still going! We are new at this and we are so thankful
for all information we can locate.
We have what we call a tombstone book. Tommy has done a lot of
photography and always looking for something to take a picture of. He saw a
family name and took the picture of the tombstone we sent you. As I was
adding pictures to the book, I was more familiar with the names by then. I
only realized about a week ago who's tombstone that was. If James S. is not
buried at Comanche, Texas,-where is he? Some have told us he was buried at
Mead. We have never been there, so will have to look there. We are also
going to go to Moore Cemetery again. (That is where we think Sallie's was).
Sarah Unknown was born in 1822 in Alabama. She married James H.
Callahan. He was born in 1814 in Georgia. Children of these two were:
Wesley born in 1843, James Samford born in 1844, Josiah born in 1847, and
Catherine born in 1849. This was taken from the 1850 Census and you may
already have this.
Apparently, Sallie Elizabeth (Nail) Callahan died in the Bromide area (a
few miles from Wapanucka) and then James moved back to Texas with his
younger daughter, May (our Great Aunt May). We have a letter from J. S.
Callahan that was written in 1911 and they were in Comanche. We will send
you a copy of it later.
We are sending you a picture of Great Aunt May (left) and Tommy's Grandma
Anna Callahan White.
Appreciate hear from you. Will talk again later.

Biography:
CALLAHAN, JAMES HUGHES (1814 - 1856) Born near
Marion, Georgia - September 10, 1814 - Died near
Blanco, Texas - April 7, 1856. James Hughes
Callahan's contributions to Texas began at the
age of 21 when he arrived at Velasco on December
20, 1835, to help the Texans fight for
independence. Callahan came as a member of the
Georgia Battalion that was organized by Major
William Ward. Joanna Troutman helped organize
the Georgia Battalion to which she presented the
Flag of the Lone Star, the prototype for the
Texas State Flag (1). At Velasco, the Battalion
was divided into three companies - Callahan was
assigned to Captain James C. Winn's Third
Company as a Sergeant (2). When mustered into
service for Texas on December 25, 1835, the
Georgia Battalion was assigned to Colonel James
Walker Fannin's command. On March 23, 1836, the
Georgia Battalion surrendered to the Mexican
forces and was returned to Victoria where
sixteen men were detailed to build a boat for
the Mexicans - one of these men was Callahan.
The rest of the Battalion was marched to Goliad
to rejoin Fannin and was among the 367 Texans
massacred on Palm Sunday, March 27, 1836.
Callahan escaped from the Mexicans on April 6,
1836, and was honorably discharged from the
Texian Army on June 9, 1836 (2). For his
service, Callahan received a Bounty Land Grant
of 640 acres in Lavaca County and a Donation
Land Grant of 640 acres in Kimble County (3).
Callahan and his family, however, lived in
Guadalupe and Caldwell Counties from 1836 to
1853. Between 1839 and 1855, Callahan was
involved in many expeditions against Indians and
Mexicans - he rode with General Benjamin
McCulloch (4), Ben Dragoo (5), Jack Hays (6),
and John Henry Brown (7) among others. He
participated in the Battle of Salado; Vasquez's
Raid, the expulsion of Adrian Woll, and most of
the volunteer armed forces from the Lockhart,
Seguin, and Blanco areas. His most historic
expedition, however, was named Callahan's
Expedition (6,8,9). On July 5, 1855, Governor E.
M. Pease wrote Callahan requesting him to form a
company of Texas Rangers (without provision of
supplies) and pursue Indians (" . . . to follow
them up and chastise them wherever they may be
found.") who were terrorizing the settlers in
the Hill Country (10). His term of service was
from July 20 to October 19, 1855 (11). Captain
Callahan tracked a band of Lipans to Eagle Pass
where they crossed into Mexico - he followed
them into Mexico on October 1, 1855. His company
of 110 men encountered ~ 500 Indians and
Mexicans. Callahan's men fended off the attack
and retreated to Piedras Negras. After 2/3 of
his men had recrossed the Rio Grande on October
7, a large Mexican force pinned the remaining 25
Texans on the Mexico side of the river. Callahan
waited until dark and burned Piedras Negras to
cover their retreat - the tactic worked. Many
damage claims were filed but none were
considered legitimate by the United States
government. Governor E. M. Pease stated that
Callahan was justified in following the Indians
into Mexico but Piedras Negras should not have
been burned (12). Callahan's Expedition was
supported by the people of Texas and set the
pattern for the Texas Rangers' tradition of
crossing the Rio Grande. In 1853, Callahan was
one of the first two settlers of the land that
would be later organized in 1858 as Blanco
County. His homestead was a farm on the south
bank of the Blanco River (originally called
Martin's Fork of the Rio Blanco) approximately
1.5 miles west of Blanco. He also owned
one-fifth of the Pittsburgh (a town that used to
be located across the river Blanco). The story
of how Callahan died was pieced together from
different sources (13,14,15,16). A neighbor's
son, Calvin Blassingame, performed chores for
the Callahan family. Callahan also held the
title to the Blassingames' land which was
located ~ one mile west of Callahan's farm. On
April 7, 1856, Callahan was informed by William
S. 'Maulheel' Johnson that Calvin's father,
Woodson, has slandered Callahan supposedly by
saying that the primary goal of Callahan's
Expedition was plunder. Callahan became
infuriated and told Calvin to have his father
meet him halfway between their homes. Callahan,
however, could not wait and he along with three
friends (Eli C. Hinds, 'Maulheel' Johnson, and
Thomas Johnson) rode to the Blassingames' cabin,
arriving there ~3p.m. Before they had a chance
to dismount, shotgun blasts from within the
cabin caught Callahan fully in the chest killing
him. An odd twist of fate - Callahan, a man who
had survived the Goliad Massacre and numerous
confrontations with Mexicans and Indians for 20
years, was killed by a neighbor's shotgun blast.
In addition, 'Maulheel' Johnson was killed and
Hinds was severely wounded; Thomas Johnson
escaped unhurt. With the injured Hinds still in
the saddle, his horse ran back to the Hind's
home. A deputy was sent to arrest the
Blassingames. Before being arrested, the
Blassingames wrote a letter addressed to several
friends, which was published in The State
Gazzette on April 26, 1856. In their letter,
they stated that they were willing to stand
trial but they were afraid that Callahan's
friends would murder them. Their fear proved to
be a prophecy for on the evening of April 14,
1856, an estimated 100 men broke into Justice of
the Peace Long's home where Calvin, Woodson, and
Mary (Calvin's mother) were being held, took
Calvin and Woodson into the street, and shot
them repeatedly. Mary escaped and was later
exonerated by a judge in San Antonio. No one was
ever convicted for the Blassingame deaths.
Callahan's wife, Sarah, died six months later -
their five children (Wesley Hughes, James
Sanford, Josiah Ashbury, Armiseda Catherine,
Mehala Caroline), all minors, were appointed
guardian. Callahan's estate took years to settle
- two interesting instances were noted in the
probate of his will. First, Callahan's estate
donated the 128 acres to establish the town of
Blanco so that it could become the County Seat
of the new Blanco County (17). Second, his
estate granted the Blassingames' title to their
homestead (18). Callahan's contributions to the
State of Texas were recognized in two ways. On
February 1, 1858, The Texas Legislature approved
the creation of Callahan County named in honor
of James Hughes Callahan (6, 19). Through the
efforts of L. W. Kemp of the State Library and
Historical Commission, The bodies of Captain
Callahan, his wife Sarah Medisa (nee Day: born
December 18, 1822 - died September 6, 1856), and
one of his sons, William Milford (born February
18, 1852 - died September 6, 1855) were
relocated from the Blanco Cemetery to the Texas
State Cemetery on January 24, 1931 - the oration
was delivered by Victor Gilbert, a state
representative from Callahan County. The people
who served with Captain Callahan described him
as the 'bravest of the brave,' 'a more honest or
true man never broke bread,' and 'a modest but
gallant man.' Published with permission of

===================================================
Correspondence from T. McDonald

I believe the following:

Edward Callahan

James Callahan b. ca. 1777

John Callahan b. 1807

Nancy Callahan b. unknown

William Callahan b. 1811

James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 ( gr gr gr grandfather)

Mary Callahan b. ca 1822

Wesley T. b. ca. 1830

Sarah F. b. ca. 1833



I can prove this by DNA profiles of the Y chromosomes in male descendants. What I need are volunteers from the John Callahan b. 1807 branch, the William Callahan b. 1811 branch, and the James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 branch.



I have a lead to find a male volunteer descendant from the William Callahan b. 1811 branch.



My job is to find a male descendant volunteer from the James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 branch. I have several candidates. I believe I can convince one.



I understand you come from the John Callahan b. 1807 branch. Is this correct? If yes, I would look to you to find a male descendant volunteer. Is this possible?



I believe Nancy b. unknown is a daughter of John Callahan b. ca. 1877. In the probate of James Hughes Callahan b. 1814,two of his daughter were sent in 1860 to live with his older sister, Nancy Hamilton, Walker County, Ga. This brother-sister relation is more difficult to prove but possible by profiling the X mitochondrial chromosome. I will pursue this possibility. I have been outlining the Hamilton family and locating descendants.



I am certain that James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 is James Callahan's b. 1777 son and the brother of John Callahan b. 1807. There is quite a bit of documentation that John Callahan b. 1807 built and repaired carriages in Jefferson, Jackson, Ga.. These men were called mechanics.



James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 was born in Jefferson, Jackson County, Ga., according to his daughter Catherine Callahan. I have a copy of this letter; it is in the archives at the Alamo. James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 left Ga. In 1835 with the Georgia Battalion and fought the Mexican Army near Goliad. He was saved from the 1836 Goliad massacre because a Mexican general asked for men who were mechanics to repairs boats at Victoria, Texas. James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 was a mechanic trained by his father just like his brother John Callahan b. 1807.



William Callahan b. 1811 had a son named James Hughes Callahan b. 1840. This not a coincidence, I believe. Hopefully the family records and letters can document my belief.



James Hughes Callahan b. 1814 had a son names Wesley Hughes Callahan b. 1844. I believe he was named after his father younger brother Wesley T. b. ca. 1830. I propose this is not a coincidence. Do you know any Wesley T. descendants?



Back to the DNA profiling. I have a PhD in Cell Biology and am familiar with DNA profiles. I have been involved with the global McDonald DNA project. Ancestry.com explains this process. It can be performed under rules of confidentiality.



Let me know your thoughts.

"Abraham Mayfield of Pendleton Dist. SC"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------

I'm currently researching the descendants and ancestors of Abraham Mayfield. This family lived in and around Anderson Co SC. Also, researching the families of DOBBINS, HUGHES, McCOY, BISHOP, YOUNG, HOWETH, and NORRIS all associated with the Mayfields. These families mainly migrated from South Carolina to Alabama (Talladega Co) to Mississippi (Tippah Co) and Texas (Van Zandt, Henderson and Rusk counties).

Words from a letter written by J.S. Callahan (attached scrapbook)
Comanche, Texas
February 5, 1911

Mr. D.A. White and Family

Dear Children,

As May has written to you and I have a chance to write you few lines I will not miss the opportunity. I know that I should have written to you many times and thought of doing it so many times but neglected to do what I should have done.
It is so dry here that I am almost ready to give it up and leave here. There is but one thing that keeps me here and that is the good health that I have here.
I would love to see you all but it is getting so that I can not work much and have but little money and can't ride the train like I did a few years ago.
I suppose May has written all the news so I will write again soon. I have got so I can not write as it is such a task for me to write that I do not write but few letters. But I do hope that you will write to me once in a while for God knows that I would be proud to get letters from my dear ones that I have not seen in so long.
Much love to you all.
Your Father,

J.S. Callahan

======================
I have some info. I have 'most' of the probate papers of Callahan...I say
most as there are many entries and the estate took years to settle. Comal
County charges $1 per page for copies, so I only have a majority of the
most informative pages. Here's what I have:

Apparently, after the death of Sarah Callahan, the executor of James
Callahan's estate became the guardian of the children. This was Edward C.
Pettus. During the October 1858 Term of the County Court, Edward Pettus
filed 'to be released from his Trust as Executor of the Estate of Jas. H.
Callahan dec'd & One to be released from his Trust as Guardian of the minor
children of said dec'd.'
[Comal County Probate Minutes, Book 'C', page 167]

During the November 1858 Term, the Court ordered 'that Wm. E. Jones is
appointed Administrator...of the Estate of James H. Callahan, dec'd and
that he shall give Bond in the sum of Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20000)...'
[Comal County Probate Minutes, Book 'C', page 169]

As to 'person & Estate of the minor heirs of Jas. H. Callahan, dec'd
to-wit:--Wesley Hughes Callahan, James Sanford Callahan, Josiah Ashbury
Callahan, Armiseda Catherine Callahan, and Mahala Caroline Callahan.
In this cause Edw. C. Pettus having resigned his Trust as Guardian, and
Wm. E. Jones having filed his application to be appointed Guardian of said
minors, in the place of Pettus, and having petitioned at the same time for
the Citation of Wesley Hughes Callahan and James Sanford Callahan, two of
the said minors over 14 years of age, to appear in Court and choose their
Guardian for themselves; and the Court being satisfied from the evidence
that legal notice has been given of such application...and Wesley H.
Callahan, and James Sanford Callahan...declaring themselves satisfied to
have Wm. E. Jones as their Guardian, the Court ordered that Wm. E. Jones is
hereby appointed Guardian of the Persons of the Minor heirs of Jas. H.
Callahan, dec'd and further ordered that Edw. C. Pettus shall be discharged
from his said Guardianship.'
[Comal County Probate Minutes, Book 'C', page 169-170]

During the April 1860 Term of the Court, William E. Jones petitons the
Court as follows:
'Petitioner represents that a Sister of the deceased James H. Callahan,
residing in the State of Georgia has written to him that she desires to
take the two girls Kate & Carrie & raise them free of expenses, except
clothing & schooling, if I will send them to Georgia.
Petitioner believes that it will be greatly to the interest of said
Children, to live with their aunt & enjoy the advantages of an older
settled country & exemption from charges of Board & attention, he therefore
prays that the Court authorize him to send said two children to their aunt
in Walker County, Georgia, as she requests & that he be authorized to use a
sufficiency of funds for that purpose.
An opportunity to send them by private conveyance in charge of Mr. James
M. Pruitt & Lady is now offered.
Wm. E. Jones

Whereupon
The Court ordered that the Guardian is allowed to send the two girls, Kate
& Carrie Callahan, to their Aunt in Walker County, Georgia, and to accept
the opportunity offered by James M. Pruitt and Lady for private conveyance,
and further ordered, that the Guardian is authorized to raise sufficient
means to pay the traveling expenses of his wards to the State of Georgia.'
[Comal County Probate Minutes, Book 'C', page 338-339]

During the May 1867 Term of Court:
'The Administrator (Wm. E. Jones) also filed his petition with
accompanying Exhibit marked AA of debts of the Estate unpaid and
uncollected debts due the Estate duly sworn to, praying for an Order of
sale of certain lands belonging to said Estate, to pay unpaid debts of the
Estate, & to defray the travelling expenses of Kate & Caroline Callahan
from Georgia back to Texas; and a view to close the Estate & Administration
thereof.'
[Comal County Probate Minutes, Book 'E', page 27]
*****This is new to me! I have never noticed this entry in the matters of
the estate before tonight. I had wondered if the girls might have ever
returned to Texas once they were grown. It appears that they did! Now to
find them!*****

That's all I have in my file...it seems to me however, that I recall a
petition filed by Wesley Hughes Callahan after he came of age, for
Guardianship of his two brothers and that they went to live with relatives
in Caldwell County, Texas. According to my records, Wesley would have
reached legal age of 18 (if that is what age they used) about 1861, shortly
after the above petition for the girls to go to Georgia. I thought I had
copies of that petiton...I guess I need to go back to Comal County and
check the records.
I have so far had no luck in identifying the sister of James H. Callahan.
I have several posts in websites dedicated to Georgia counties where she
might have lived with no luck. Wesley, I know lived for quite a few years,
if not the rest of his adult life in Kendall County (which was originally
part of Blanco County). But I have not learned very much about his life. I
know nothing about the other two boys. You are the first information I have
found for either of thier lives.
I noticed your webpage...which is great by the way....that you have some
brothers for James H. Callahan as well as a father for him. Do you by
chance have any source information for that data? I would love it.
That's it...take care....

CONFEDERATE MIILITARY SERVICE

CONFEDERATE TEXAS TROOPS

1st Regiment, Texas Cavalry (McCulloch's) (1st Mounted Riflemen)

1st (McCulloch's) Regiment Mounted Rifles was organized with about 1,000 men in May, 1861, and served in the Department of Texas on the frontier. In April, 1862, the unit was reduced to five companies and redesigned the 8th Texas Cavalry Battalion. Its commanders were Colonel Henry E. McCulloch, Lieutenant Colonel Thomas C. Frost, and Majors James B. Barry and Ed. Burleson - Company D, Private.

Hardeman's Regiment, Texas Cavalry (31st Cavalry) (1st Regiment, Arizona Brigade) - Company E. Private.

=========================================================================
"...as far as Indian operations are concerned, follow them no odds where they go, and if you can come up with them, whip them.

- - Colonel Henry McCulloch, Commander, 1st Texas Mounted Rifles


-------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------
Official record: James S. Callahan enlisted for Confederate service in Company D, 1st Texas Calvary (McCulloch's) on April 20, 1861. His age was stated to be 18 years - in fact, he had not yet turned 17 years old (he turned 17 on July 5, 1861). He enlisted for service along with his brother, Wesley Hughes Callahan. He later saw service in Hardeman's Regiment, Arizona Brigade, 31st Texas Calvary commanded by Col. William Polk "Gotch" Hardeman. As far as I can tell, all of his service in the calvary during the years of the Civil War was in the frontier regions of north and west Texas or in the adjacent Indian Territory, Arkansas and Louisiana - mostly scouting for Union invaders and fighting hostile Indians.

The First Texas Calvary better known as the 1st Calvary, Texas Mounted Rifles (refered to by the officers as 1st Texas Mounted Rifles) was recruited and organized under a 12 month enlistment from counties in central Texas, near San Antonio and Austin. The regiment was mustered into service in mid April 1861; the first calvary regiment from Texas to enter the Confederate service. The regiment was disbanded at Fort Mason in late April 1862 upon expiration of enlistment. The roster of the 1st Mounted Rifles list 1,000 soldiers of the ten companies:

Company A - Capt. Thomas C. Frost, Comanche County
Company B - Capt. Governeur Nelson, Bexar County
Company C - Capt. James B. Barry, Bosque County
Company D - Capt. Travis H. Ashby, Gonzales County
Company E - Capt. Green Davidson, Bell County
Company F - Capt. William G. Tobin, Bexar County
Company G - Capt. William A. Pitts, Travis County
Company H - Capt. Milton M. Bogges, Rusk County
Company I - Capt. James H. Fry, Burleson County
Company J - Capt. Milton Webb, Lamar County

Engagements
San Lucas Springs (6 companies) May 9, 1861

McCulloch, with approximately two companies of men , captured Camp Colorado, Ft. Chadbourne, Camp Cooper, and Ft. Belknap providing approximately $1.5 million worth of military stores for the state.

COPIED FROM The Texas State Historical Society HANDBOOK OF TEXAS ON LINE website:
FIRST TEXAS CAVALRY. The First Texas Cavalry, also known as McCulloch's Texas Cavalry, was organized and mustered into service on April 15, 1861. It is more commonly known by its nickname, the First Texas Mounted Rifles. Many of the regiment's original members were Texas Rangers </handbook/online/articles/met04> before the start of the Civil War </handbook/online/articles/qdc02>. Col. Henry Eustace McCulloch </handbook/online/articles/fmc35> organized the unit and served as its first commanding officer. He was given various assignments and commands throughout the war and received a promotion to the rank of brigadier general on March 14, 1862. The men serving in McCulloch's regiment came primarily from the counties of Bastrop, Bell, Hill, Dallas, and Gonzales. As originally mustered, the regiment had roughly 1,000 men in service. With McCulloch commanding, the regiment's field officers were Maj. James B. Barry </handbook/online/articles/fba89>, Maj. Edward Burleson, Jr. </handbook/online/articles/fbu41>, and Lt. Col. Thomas C. Frost </handbook/online/articles/ffr37>.
On May 9, 1861, six companies of the First Texas Cavalry Regiment serving under Col. Earl Van Dorn </handbook/online/articles/fva05> took part in the so-called battle of Adams Hill </handbook/online/articles/qka01>, also referred to as the battle of San Lucas Springs, just west of San Antonio. At Adams Hill no shots were fired as the heavily outnumbered Union forces surrendered and were allowed to march on to San Antonio. On November 1, 1861, one company of the First Texas Cavalry Regiment took part in a skirmish with Indians </handbook/online/articles/bzi04> on the Peosi River, which is a branch of the Red River. The company, commanded by Capt. James B. Barry, killed ten Indians and wounded the remaining two during the skirmish. As the First Texas Cavalry, the regiment saw no further action. In April 1862 the regiment was reduced to a battalion with five companies. It then officially became the Eighth Cavalry Battalion.
