Well, there’s always the possibility that I am wrong, but I have two more clipping for you, Rhonda:

Vermont Phoenix
July 13, 1906
Ashuelot, N. H.
John Callahan of Worcester, Mass., was with his mother, Mrs. Annie Calahan (sic), over Sunday. His son Walter is here for the summer.

July 29, 1901
Ashuelot, N. H.
Mr. John Callahan and two children of Worcester, Mass., are visiting at Mrs. Annie Callahan’s.

I notice in the 1910 census that John A. Callahan, 31, of Worcester, Mass, born in Vermont, had a wife Mabel, son Walter and daughter Marion. This looks like your John Andrew to me. Did your John Andrew Callahan have a son named Walter?

Remember that Frederick William Callahan’s obituary also said he had lived in Worcester, Mass. before returning to Ashuelot to die (1909).

I can’t explain the two Thomases, but this sure looks like your family and that Annie is the step-mother who must have married Patrick about 1883 since the 1900 census said Patrick and Annie had been married 20 years [give or take, as always with the census ; ) ] and since their daughter Nellie was born about 1884. Perhaps Kate Mack Callahan died in childbirth.

Whatever you decide, good hunting!
