I've had a very difficult time tracing my Callicott ancestry. My grandfather & grandmother separated and then she heard he died (before 1926).
Unfortunately, I was over 50 years old before I got the genealogy bug and some of my older relatives are deceased. My grandfather's name was David Joseph Callicott, his father was named Will Callicott (I guess for William).
He was living in Alabama with his daughter Viola Jones in 1920 (83 or 84 yrs of age) and her husband was Curtis Jones. I believe they lived in Mississippi before that. For a short time my mother, her sister and brother were put in an orphanage and Mrs Jones got them out. They lost contact and my Aunt Esther doesn't remember much. The children's names were Nell, Esther and Joseph Andrew. Do you know anyone I could contact who could assist in locating names of acestors?
