Thank you for the reference.

I will contact Wofford College about it.
Thank you for the information. It is very helpful.

I will research them as possible additional children.

The Chandler wife of Joseph Callahan was not named Elizabeth.  Elizabeth, daughter of John Chandler, never married. Joseph did marry a daughter of John Chandler;; but, her given name is not known at this time.

A lot more work needs to be done.
Thank you so much, Betty!!
You're quite welcome.

In 1850, Yancey Co. NC was a Joseph Callahan aged 30 b. 1820 living with James E. Callahan aged 1 and Nancy Callahan aged 26.  I looked at that 1850 census you cited he was born in Yancey Co. in 1 781 and he is still there in 1850, I'd say he had an estate there.

There also was a large family of Callahans in the family of John aged 44 in Yancey Co. They most likely are related to your Joseph.  I found other Callahans  in Yancey Co. All those Callahans are going to be related someway to each other.  I don't see anything interesting on the web you may have to chase down Yancey Co. land records maybe from the Mormons.  But you have a lot of people to sort out.  This will not be an easy family.  David T.

Thank you.  It is not an easy family.

I did a cursory search on line for Yancey records - marriages, estates and deeds.-  I did not find them on line.  So, I will have go to LDS.

FYI, the father of Joseph Callahan is not not Joel Callahan,  Joseph is not in the estate file of Joel.

This answer is the best answer.
Thanks!! You are right about it not being easy. Howard and I are continuing to work on it. I am going to add all the collateral lines I can. Thanks so much!
