Neal A. Callihan's daughter, Susana, was my grandmother.
Neal served in the Civil War at Ft. Fisher, NC as a drummer in the 3rd Co. B, 36th Regiment N.C.T. He was 16 years old at the time.Sometime later he became a preacher. He was blind for about the last 15 years of his life but he built the chimney for my grandmother's house. I have two bricks from the chimney with the date and his initials. He is buried at Mt. Horeb Pres. Church in Bladen County, NC on Hwy NC87.
I am trying to find out more about his grandfather, Issac Callihan. He was born in 1776 in Cork, Ireland and I understand that he married and Indian woman named Nancy (or Nicey) Jones.Any info would be appreciated.
