Does anybody have David McCallum, the British actor who starred with Robert Vaughan, in The Man From Uncle" in their family tree? My grandmother always said that he was related to a cousin of hers. The name Jean McCallum comes to my mind, but that is absolutely all I know! Any help appreciated. I am looking for a common ancestor to begin with. Thanks Jeanne Bell

I have a similar story in my family that my mother - Euphemia Cuthbertson McCallum - and David's father [ also David ]were cousins. Even a subscription to the Official David McCallum Fan Club newsletter [Channel_M@yahoogroups.com] and a request for further information there has failed to produce any confirmation of this.
Perhaps we should exchange our information on our McCallums?

Hi Sandra,

Thanks for your reply. I suppose the people that run the fan clubs have hosts of people claiming to be related, but it would be good to get an answer, even if negative. I tried that avenue as well.
Since I posted that message, I found a marriage certificate, for my G-Grandfather (a Watson). Witnesses at this, his 2nd marriage, were his sister, Catherine (Watson) McCallum, and presumably, her husband, David McCallum. The marriage was in Glasgow in 1913. But that's about it really, except when as a teenager, whenever the Man from Uncle came on, my Mum would say, "your Nanny says that man is our relation"
By the way, is your name Millan derived from McMillan, I have McMillan connected to the same Watson family?

Thanks for your prompt answer - no immediate solutions. There's lots of work to be done.
My "Millan" probably comes from "Mullan".
Funnily enough my own name was "Walker" from my father's family and my mother's (McCallum) mother's mother was a Walker before her marriage.
I'll keep looking for the connections.

Hello, Janet,
I'd be interested to know more about your husband's tree. I think that David McCallum's (actor) father was my mother's cousin. My grandfather was james McCallum - one of many!

My grandfather was also an actor. He tap dance in different bars for pay. I think he was born in Irleand and came over on the ship Celtic. But not sure if that ship with his name is him because he was married to someone else and had a child. Unless he had married twice because my James McCOLLUM/ McCALLUM married someone that was many years younger than he was. Her name is Daisy Mae BROWN in MI>
