Tim:

The information I have is as follows:

There is a church at Level Land, South Carolina, called the Little River Baptist Church, established August 27, 1791. At that church is the Callaham/Carwile cemetery.

There is a large memorial stone to John Callaham and to Zachariah Carwile. Under the Carwile side of the stone, the inscription reads as follows:

Born in Goochland County, Virginia, 1750.
Died, Level Land, 1841, lies in unmarked grave in this cemetery. Soldier of Revolutionary War, fought at King's Mountain and Black Stocks, was in skirmish with Tories and British on Hog Skin Creek, near Alewine's Mill Site. Married Mary McMahon - parents of nine children.

I posted more information under Callaham, John - 1770 - 1855 - SC.

I have a picture of the stone.

If I can be of further service, please do not hesitate to contact me.

My family is Callahan/Callaham. I could never connect this branch to my people. I am told that a lot of the Callahams and Carwiles died in 1855 during a typhoid epidemic.
