Mr. F. T. Callahan.
Calhoun Times’ Kind Words About Deceased Citizen.

The Calhoun Times contained the following regarding Mr. F. T. Callahan, whose remains were brought from that town to Cartersville for interment week before last:

“Mr. Callahan served with distinction in various capacities in the Confederate army, and at one time had charge of a factory at Marietta where belts and cartridge boxes were made for the service, the token from the Daughters was greatly appreciated by the family.

“Mr. Callahan was born in Dekalb county, December 20, 1828.  In early childhood the family moved to Cartersville and from that city to Dalton where he lived until 1890 when he moved to Calhoun.  He was married September 18, 1854, to Miss Margaret Faulkner.  She died August 23, 1870, and on July 23, 1874, he was married to Miss Cynthia Bradford, who survives him.  He leaves two sons, Mr. Paul F. Callahan, of Calhoun, and Mr. W. M. Callahan, of Floyd county.

“In the passing away of Mr. Callahan the church loses a faithful member and the town a good citizen.”
