He was not destined to remain in NYC. Do you have any indication of where he went to live, work etc. =Peter=

Sorry,all I know is that John Callahan came in through Castle Gardens, NY.
"where is USA seat for your(?) Callahan family in oral family history? =Peter=" :/ I don't understand what you mean by this.

John Callahan found June 8,1880 NYC, 1900 Census Brooklyn. I believe his wife's name is Helen White and my Great Grandfather's name is Thomas Michael Aloysius Callahan~ born approx. Sept. 11,1869 died Sept. 11,1938,(have copy of Death Certificate) married Elizabeth C. Paterson. Has brothers John,Matthew and sister Ann. Thomas was a NY Police Officer, Matthew was a fireman.
Is there any way on finding more on them now?
