The Belins as associated with the Callis-Nevitsky's
My grandfather John Thomas Callis was the son of John S. Navitsky, a Czech coal minor, and was one of six children. There were Alexander, Pauline, Ann Marie, Julia, and Joseph besides John Thomas. Sometime between 1920 and 1930 John Nevitsky, for whatever reason, changed the family name to Callis, which affected all his children, including those of emancible age. Ann Marie married Victor G. Belin of Smoke Run, PA. They produced two sons, Victor E. and John Francis Belin. Victor married a Lucille (or Louise, I'm not sure of her name) and produced several children. They live in Punxsutawney, PA. John Francis for a while owned and ran a funeral home in Punxsutawney, where he boarded his grandmother Susanna Navitsky until her death sometime in the late sixties, whereupon he sold the business, moved to Washington DC, became a civil servant, married Marjorie Songer, and lived in Olney, MD until his death sometime in the late seventies. Marjorie died a few years earlier. They didn't have any children. John Thomas married Estelle Lewis Callis and produced William A. (my father), John L., Charles R., Janet E., and Jean M., who died in early childhood. I don't know about the children of my grandfather's siblings, but all his immediate children have produced children and have passed on. All those children, amounting to eight, are living as of the date of this message.
