Following up on a message posted here last year by Dave Callan re: the family of Michael Callan who emigrated from County Louth in the 1840's to the DC area.
Trying to clarify Michael's relationship with James T. Callan who also arrived in DC at about the same time. I believe James T. is the son of Michael's younger brother Lawrence who remained in Ireland.
Hope you can help me verify this, Dave.

I don't have any information concerning Lawrence, other than he was a brother of Michael. according to my information, there were two patriarchs in the US- Michael and Lawrence. Lawrence had a son - Joseph Henry , who was a Deputy Comissioner of Internal Revenue, but I don't have any info re James, but that was a name favored by the Callans

James -- I have information about Lawrence Callan's family. I'm actually looking for people related to his brother Michael Callan, so we can compare notes.

I am looking for my great great grandfather Christopher Callan who was born in 1845 and died here in michigan in 1926. My Christopher married Mary Ellen Whalen. They had 8 children. I have nothing on Christopher's family. His tombstone here at the Old St Andrews Cemetry states Christopher J Callan. In a family genealogy story Christopher is stated to come from Dublin Ireland but this may be a mistake like others we have ran into. There is information that he may have been in Almer Michigan before residing in Grand Rapids. Is there a connection to any one?

I have that Michael Callan and Mary Ann Wedaman and 6 of their children arrived in Baltimore, Maryland from Dundalk, Ireland, on 22 August 1844 aboard the vessel "Luconia". They settled in Georgetown. Their sons attended Georgetown College. Does anyone have how I can get additional information.

I read 3 Aug 1881 article on Michael Callan on his 100th birthday saying he was Georgetown's (Washington DC) oldest citizen. In the article he stated his longivity was due to the fact he had never had an alcoholic drink. He also said he had 3 sons & 4 daughters (3 in Georgetown & 1 in NY). The daughters would be there for the celebration, but the sons couldn't leave their businesses. He also stated his wife had died almost a year earlier at the age of 65.

I have quit a bit of information on two of Michael Callan (b. 1780 Black Rock, County Louth, Ireland-d. 1884 Georgetown, Washington DC) and Mary Ann Wedaman's (b. 1915 Dublin, Ireland-d.1880 Georgetown) sons Michael Maximus (called MM or Peter) Callan (10 children) and Capt. James Joseph Callan of Coleman County, Texas. James Callan married my great aunt Margaret Jane Sheen (dau. of my gggrandfather John Sheen and gggrandmother Mary Ann Davies of Wales, 12 children).

Is the 3rd son Christopher C. Callan who left Georgetown to fight for the confederacy? Is 1865 Justice of the Peace for the District of Columbia Nicholas Callan related to Micheal? Does anyone know the names of the 4 daughters of Michael and Mary Ann Wedaman?

Any help with this family who be appreciated.
