I am working on my mum's family tree and am trying to find some relatives of my Callan family. Patrick Callan (1881-1950) is my great grandfather and was the son of Nicholas Callan (1855-1932) and Margaret Cross (1857-1943).
Nicholas and Margaret had a total of about 9 children, 2 of whom weren't alive at the time of the 1911 Ireland census. Patrick's siblings were Joseph, Thomas, Jenny (Jane), Kathleen (Kitty), Annie and William Joseph.
Patrick married twice. Firstly to a Mary Murrary to who he had Tommy and Madge (1914-2002). Madge married Dan Cleary (1919-1995) and they moved to Arizona.
He then married Annie O'Brien (1901-1968), to who he had Nora (1926-2006), Vera, Sally, Sean and Marion (1934-2011). Sean married Teresa Kelly (1931-2006) and they moved to California.
The families lived and grew up in Naas, County Kildare. Patrick and Annie and their children grew up on Sunny Hill Farm.
I would love to hear from any descendants of these families. I have a couple old photos of my Callan family at Sunny Hill Farm and Kilcullen. I would like to find out more about Tommy from Pstrick's marriage and about Patrick's first wife Mary, as well as more about Patrick's parents and siblings and their families.
I hope to hear from anyone who can help, especially any distant cousins etc.
