Thomas Callihan, 1778 NJ, PA
Posted by: Don Callihan Date: December 06, 1999 at 20:16:54
  of 227

On January 20, 1805, Thomas Callihan put the following advertisement in the Bedford, PA Gazette:

"INFORMATION WANTED. If Jacob or Nancy Callihan be alive they will gratify a brother by writing to the Subscriber and letting him know. In the year 1778 at which time the Subscriber separated from them, they both lived in the State of New Jersey; Jacob in Sculey's Mountain, Morris County; and Nancy in Woodbridge township, Morris county. . . . Subscriber living in Bedford County. Thomas Callihan"

Does anyone have any information on Thomas's siblings, Jacob and Nancy?

It has also been handed down through the family that Thomas came from Northern Ireland. Does anyone have any evidence to substantiate this claim?

Although Thomas spelled the name Callihan in later coorespondence, it may have been spelled differently in earlier times. Examples that I have seen include: Callahan, Calahan, Calihan, Calahon
