(Explorer, Volume 9, Number 8, Kentucky Genealogy, Diary of Dr. John J. Dickey, quoting John McDaniel of Perry County Kentucky:"Old Ned Callahan died at the home of his son-in-law Robin Cornett, where Hays Coldiron lives at Benge this County. When an old man and deer about disappeared, he would go out in evening by Mill Creek and build a fire and sleep by it all night. When old he always wore his hunting tackle, a pouch containing flints, a pipe and tobacco, etc. He would put it on when he dressed just as his garments."[1][2][3][4]
