My CALLAHAN's left County Clare in the 1880's and I think they came to New York first, then to Illinois and Missouri by 1890's.
Patrick "Daniel" CALLAHAN (1842-1873 Ireland) md. Margaret "Peggy" GRIFFIN
Known children:
(1) Dan CALLAHAN - had a daughter Nora
(2) Nellie A. CALLAHAN (1862-1941) bn Ireland, immigrated circa 1884; Never married. Carrollton, IL 1900-1920; Kansas City MO 1940-41
(3) Bridget Agnes CALLAHAN (1864-1947) bn County Clare, Ireland. immigrated circa 1882; md John "Thomas" Patrick LOGAN 1890 in Kansas City, Missouri. Bridget had a cousin named Simon SHANNON, based on family information. So she must have had a CALLAHAN or GRIFFIN aunt who married a SHANNON.

Surnames: Callahan, Sweeney
My great grandparents, Patrick (abt 1820 - 1880) and Margaret Sweeney Callahan (abt 1830 - 1906), came to Juneau County about 1855 from Massachusetts, then moved on to Waseca County Minnesota about 1865. With the same surname, same county in Wisconsin and similar timing your John might be related to my Patrick.

I have found nothing about origins in Ireland or date(s) of migration. There was a daughter Johanna born in New York state about 1849, but she might have been from a previous marriage for Margaret, if an 1852 Massachusetts marriage record is theirs. They went on to have six sons.
