I show David Crockett McCallister, son of Michael McCallister and Hannah ??, b 1828, somewhere in Alabama.Brothers Michael D. and Thomas also report on the 1850 census for Limestone County TX that they were born in Alabama.Next after David was a sister named Dicy, who married a Daniel Eaton.Daniel and Dicy appear on the 1850 census a couple of pages over from her parents in Limestone County.On that 1850 census, Dicy reports that she was born in MO.However, the youngest son, Willson, still in the parents household, is reported to have been born in MS.It is my understanding that this family was in Van Buren Co AR before locating in Limestone Co TX.
I am a descendant of Michael D. McCallister through his youngest daughter, Laura, who married J. W. Baldwin.I have only come into the information about Laura's family within the last week, when I was contacted by another researcher as a result of a post I left on GenForum.I love GenForum!
I would be very happy to compare notes with you on this family, and share what I was given, and what I have found.
