Okay, this isn't about William L. Callender....You mentioned that your Callender line is from NY.....
Philo Callender, b. 18 Jul 1805 somewhere in New York, married my gggGrandmother's sister, Ann Maria Towsley.In 1830 they are at Bainbridge, Chenango, NY.In 1840 and 1850 they are a few towns over at Smithville, Chenango, NY.In the 1860's they moved to Clatsop County, Oregon, where both died in the late 1880's.Their descendancy is fairly easy to track through 1930.
I can't find anything else on Philo.....siblings, parents, etc.In 1880 he says his parents are both from NY.There are no other Callenders in Chenango county 1800-1850 (although 1830 lists Philo's family as "Calman", so, I'm not very comfortable about his origins being from that area.
By any chance do you have anything that would link Philo to any other Callenders in New York?
Thanks so much for your time, especially if this is way out in left field.
