Consider that Elizabeth's parents may be James CALLISON Sr. b. 1739 in County Armagh,Ireland and Elizabeth McCALLISTER ,also b. in Ireland. They married about 1764 in Ireland and shortly thereafter came to America, settling in Virginia first. I have a list of 5 children born between 1765 and 1777. None, curiously enough named Elizabeth. There was a son James, b. abt. 1770 Augusta Co., VA. m. Susannah EDMISTON, 1797 Bath Co.,VA, and d. 1843, Pocahontas Co., Va. James Sr. was a considerable land owner in the area of Droop Mtn., the Callison land was in Augusta, then Greenbrier, then Bath, then Pocahontas County.
