I am researching the Callier family that came to Texas prior to 1860 from Talbot Co., GA.
Thomas & Mary Eleanor (Williams) Callier had a son named Richard P. Callier. He married Lucy Ann (Kookegee?) Keockegee and they had two sons; Frank Capers Callier & Edward Monroe Callier.
Family legend states that Frank and Ed's father brought them to Texas prior to 1860, and that he died in a POW camp during the Civil War.
1860 Census has Richard P, Frank and Ed in Hardin Co., Tx. Not sure what happened to wife Lucy, but she is not on the 1860 census. In Dec. 1861 Richard P Callier enlisted as a private, mustered at Camp Rusk, Lamar Co., Tx, Red River Battalion, Company G, Texas 9th Infantry Regiment
Found listed as POW (not sure if he died?)
I have not found Richard Callier after 1860, assume he could have died in Civil War - this would certainly follow the family legend.
Frank C. Callier settled in Dallas, Texas and married Mary Alice Fox, they had the following children: Alice, Edward, Homer, Shirley, Emma, Frank, Mary 'Nix' & Stratton Fox Callier.
Homer Callier married 1) Dr. Gaston 2) Dr. Terrell
(Homer was my husband's great-grandmother.)
Edward married Lena ? Lena established a trust for the Dallas Speech and Hearing Center in Dallas, Tx upon her death in 1957.
Shirley married John Lewis Puterbaugh
Frank Jr. married Nadine Bowen
Stratton married Elizabeth Evangeline Mills?
Edward Callier settled in Houston County, Texas area and married Margaret Caroline ?, thier children are: Lucy, John B, Carrie? & Thomas Edward.
John B married Maud Douglass
Thomas Edward married Elizabeth Pruit
Have not seen much on these families, would like more info. or to share what I have. Lisa
