Does anyone know where I can find a copy of The Louisiana Genealogical Register, January, 1947, vol. II. I am searching for an article written by Dr. G.M.G. Stafford in this issue. Any direction would be appreciated.

Found this:

I found this published in the Mississippi Geneologial Exchange, Vol. XIV Winter 1968, pp. 73-74:

The following items are abstracted from an account of the family by the late Dr. G. M. G. Stafford, and published in The Louisiana Genealogical Register, Vol. II (1947), which he edited for several years. Interested readers should try to see the foregoing, as space does not permit printing the entire article.
The name was variously spelled Calliham, Callihan, Calihan, etc.

David, John and Nicholas Calliham were in Cumberland Parish, Lunenberg Co., Va in 1748; apparently well established. Soon after 1764 David left Virginia for what is now Richmond Co., Georgia; but evidently did not stay there long. He moved over into S. C., Ninety-Six Dist., which was later Edgefield Dist. He was a Revolutionary patriot, as proved by a warrant at the S. C. Historical Commission, issued by the State on 18 August 1785 to David Calliham for money due him 'for provisions furnished the Militia in 1781.' About 1781 he moved his family to Washington Co., Ga, where he died before 5 Jan. 1793.

David Calliham married before leaving Virginia. Ages of his children and will of his wife, Elizabeth, which reads in part, 'formerly of Lunenburg Co., Va' proves this. Names of eight children are known: James, Joel, William, Joyce, John, Elizabeth, David and Susanna. Of these, John, David and Susannah, who md _____ Griffin, moved to Mississippi in the late 1700's. David lived in Wilkinson, where he died 5 May 1833; md. Mary Young. Children: John Young, David, Elizabeth, William, James Young, Nicholas, Ann, Mary, Joyce Gray, Phares William, Hillary Gray and Jackson David.

Will of Elizabeth Callihan
Dated 1 Feb. 1798 Pvd: 3 Jun 1800
Recorded: Supplement, Will Book 1, p. 15
Adams Co., Mississippi
Formerly of Lunenburg Co., Va. and late of I have lately occupied not far from Bayou Sara divided between grandson, Thomas Griffin, and my son John Callihan. Dau: Susanna Griffin; grandson John Callihan, son of David Callihan; Bety, dau. of David.
Exrs: Sons, John and David Calliham.
Wit: James White, Levina ______, and John Sheppert.

Additional note on Calliham family:

Although the above account of the family suggests, with admittedly lack of proof, that Elizabeth, daughter of David and Elizabeth ( ) Calliham md. Ebenezer Starnes, who left a will in Wilkes Co., Ga, dated 25 March 1793 and probated 13 May 1793, leaving to his dau. Elizabeth 'her portion willed to her by her grandfather David Calahan.' He did leave a wife, Elizabeth; but this daughter was named first, followed by provisions for his wife and other children. Dr. Stafford stated: 'There can be no doubt from the manner in which Starnes expresses himself in disposing of his estate that his daughter Elizabeth and the other children had different mothers.' Therefore, Ebenezer Starnes may have married another daughter of David and Elizabeth ( ) Calliham, which is borne out by the following item:

Bartlett Calihan Thompson was the son of John Longmire Thompson and Elizabeth Calihan Thompson, daughter of David Calihan and wife, Elizabeth.

Adaliza Adelia Carter Thompson, wife of Bartlett C. Thompson, daughter of Pharoah Carter and wife Susanna Griffin Carter.

Thanks for reminding me about genforum. I haven't looked there in a few years. Google also had a good bit of information but not what i am looking for. The article in LGR is titled "The Maner Family". I would really like to find a library or other place with a copy of LGR 1947 vol 2 pg 3.

You can use to locate publications in most libraries--and some archives-- around the world. You can enter your zip code, and it will show you locations nearest to you. Two notes, though...One, sometimes you need to be careful how you enter titles/authors, because one facility may have an item listed one way while another has it differently. As an example, one facility may list the editor as the author, but another lists the source of the original materials, i.e. Earl Woods, editor, vs. the Archdiocese of New Orleans. :) Second point, once you identify a possible facility near you, be sure try to go to that facility's own card catalog and re-confirm that they have the issue you are seeking. Sometimes items "walk away" and go missing. And lastly, on a general note, I always recommend people examine a facility's info. about making copies, etc. Some have copiers that accept only change, only accept dollar bills, desks that won't make change, or even limits on the number of pages copied. I went to one library where they were happy to make change of any sort, but there was one copier. Should have noticed that earlier in the day, so I wasn't racing to make copies at the end, with a line behind me! Lol

Good luck with your copies, and if you can't locate a facility near you, please let me know. I may be in one soon that has that publication. I know because I need articles from other issues of it. ;)
