    Notes 
    • [Cleek, p. 391-392]
      Edward S. Callihan III married Jane Lockridge, dau. of Wm. Lockridge and Elizabeth Benson, on Sept 14, 1815 in Bath Co. Children:
      William Lockridge Callahan b. 1816
      Mary J. md. Wm. Briscoe
      Elizabeth md. Thomas Ryder
      Rebecca md. Thomas Townsend
      Otho W. - a dentist
      Lancelot S.
      Margaret md. (1) John Matheny (2) Dyer Bird
      Charlotte md. Peter Bird. No children.
      --Note that Mary Jane and Elizabeth's spouses are not corroborated by marriage bonds below; Cleek seems to have gotten confused here. Re Margaret, on p. 375 he says:

      John J. Bird, son of David Bird and Elizabeth Hull, married (1) Jane Chestnut and (2) Margaret Callahan Matheny. They settled in Illinois. John's brother David Bird md. Martha Ryder, dau. of W.C. Ryder (according to the marriage bond) and settled in IL, and his brother George Hull Bird married Eliza Jane Ryder, dau. of Wm. J. Rider and Rosanna Sharp (George had 2 other wives after Eliza).

      --The name Dyer Bird is not mentioned anywhere else in Cleek. The marriage bond for Jane Chestnut in 1835 says John D. Bird twice. Maybe it was John Dyer Bird and he went by Dyer sometimes. John D. & Jane Bird are in the 1850 McHenry co IL census, same place as Margaret & John B. Matheny.
