Re: Callison, Cicero 1871 Illinois
Marianne, I only found this Callison in the 1880 Illinois record but maybe you can get someone from Cook Co. to check it out for Cicero.
James Callison 1880 census Cook Co, Ill page 381. Another thing to bear in mind is that there was a group of Virginia Callisons who went to Ohio and then to Illinois who used the Collison spelling.We have also found them occasionally as Kellison. Lots to think about. The Illinois branch founded the twp of Collison, Illinois but they started off as Callison.
