I found this beautiful small cemetery on the outskirts of Mallow while looking for the O'Callaghan castle. The Callaghan lands were traditionally west of Mallow, Cork along both sides of the Blackwater river valley, comprising the parishes of Kilshannig and Clonmeen. The Callaghan’s were dispossessed of their ancestral home of approximately 50,000.00 acres during the Cromwellian Plantation and settled in East Clare.
This is Edwin Lot Bergstresser and Cecilia Callahan. I was recently given this and verified with older relatives who they are.
Hello everyone, this is an amazing site. Love the enthusiasm from the Callaghans. Our GGGrandmother was Norry O Callaghan married to Michael Buttimer in 1844. Norry was part of the Callaghan clan in the northern part of Inchigeela, west Cork. This was very near the Kerry border. The townlands that they lived in were Sylvergrove, Currahy, Turnaspidogy, Carrignadoura and Cleanrath. Norrys' parents were Denis Callaghan and Mary Leary married in 1816 witness was Richard Callaghan. In our family notes we have Denis's father as Patrick Callaghan married to Ellen Mahoney. Patrick's father was Cornelious Callaghan born about 1740. There very strong ties to the Kerry Callaghans. Still working on the paper trail. The other branch of Callaghans in our family tree were know as the Aghabulogue Callaghans, they are on my mother's side. My dad attended a Callaghan gathering in 1950s. He remembered a Maurice Callaghan from Dripsey. He was very impressed with Maurice. They were other Callaghans from north Cork and Blarney. The paper trail on this Callaghan branch seem to be more difficult, but still working on it. Go raibh maith agat, John Tobin
The book arrived as I sent the last post.
John Michael Callahan was born in Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania on 23 Jan 1888. He listed his parents as Andrew J. Callahan and Agnes Roney, but had conflicting information on census records about his parents place of birth. One census says Pennsylvania for both parents and another says Ireland. I have found no record of Andrew or Agnes in Doylestown or PA to date. John Michael Callahan worked on the Missouri Pacific Railroad as a brakeman & conductor. He lived in Nebraska where he died in 1946.

Excerpt from The Daily Journal July 31, 1908:
Death of Mrs. George Davis
Called Away Suddenly This Morning By Stroke of Paralysis
Annie, wife of the late George D. Davis, deceased, died suddenly this morning at 7:30 at her home on North Second Street, the result of a stroke of paralysis, aged about 73 years.
At 5 o'clock this morning she called to her son Charles, who went to her bedside and found her unable to get up. A physician was at once summoned, and everything possible was done to relieve her, but all efforts in this direction failed and at the hour indicated her spirit took its flight.
The deceased was born at Bellefonte, but most of her life has been spent in Philipsburg. Her maiden name was Miss Annie Callahan, daughter of Charles and Margaret Callahan. She was married to George D. Davis in 1858, to whom seven children were born, only two of whom survive, viz: Mrs. Charles Pry, residing near Pittsburg, and Charles, of this place. Two brothers and one sister also survives, John and Wharton Callahan, of this place and Mrs. Celia Berkstresser, of Hublersburg.
The death of this kind hearted and highly esteemed lady, coming so unexpectedly, is a sad blow to her many friends. She was in her usual good health yesterday.
The time of the funeral will be announced tomorrow.

Hi Folks: A couple of members asked for me to repost our banner with out the print. This is a photo of The Rock of Cashel Tipperary where King Callaghan ruled about 1000 a.d. This is not a photo of the Callaghan Castles that existed in Cork. My understanding is that some of the ruins exist but I am not sure that anyone has actual photos of them.
