JAMES HENRY (JIM) CALLAHAN
James Henry Callahan, or better known as "Jim", son of Yateman Louis Callahan, and brother to Emmett Colby Callahan was born in Lawrence County, Alabama.
STORY TOLD BY: EMMETT C. CALLAHAN
James Henry Callahan grew up on the farm in Lawrence County, Alabama. When he was a boy in his early teens, he was playing with some other boys, and jumped off a high bluff at Fairfield, Alabama, fractured his leg, and finally had to have one leg amputated (half-way from knee to ankle) after six or eight months of pain. There was no hospital in Decatur at that time, and my father, Yateman Louis Callahan, put him in a wagon, and drove to Jim Moore's house in Moulton Heights. Jim Moore was my mother's brother. The street cars ran out there then, and a Doctor Smith amputated his
foot and leg. James Henry Callahan or Jim, was fitted with a wooden leg, but was unable to wear it, and was fitted with an artificial leg, and wore that for a while, but went back to using the wooden leg and foot.
When he recovered from the operation and able to get around, he ran away from home. His father, Yateman Louis Callahan, found out that he was in Birmingham, Alabama and Ensley, Alabama, and sent me, Emmett Colby Callahan, on the train to go bring him back home. After several days in Birmingham, I was able to locate him. We returned back home again. James Henry Callahan, or Jim, was satisfied to getting back home again, but that didn't last long. He ran away from home again, this time he headed back to Birmingham, Alabama, to the home of one of his brothers (Forrest Milton Callahan). He continued to stay on with him for a little while, but took off from there, to neither be seen nor heard from since.
(Emmett Colby Callahan said this was around 1909-1910 or 1911-1912)
Ruby Lee Callahan, daughter of Emmett Colby Callahan, said she could remember him and his wooden leg hobbling around, and she was born in 1909.
James Henry Callahan came back home one time after his mother died, but didn't stay around too long and that was the last time he was ever seen.
27 October 1979:
Visited with a cousin of mine today, Berta Callahan in the Falkville Nursing Home. She says she can remember Jim well, and she was born 14 February 1904 and at the time of this writing she is 75 years old. She believes "Granny Kate", Elizabeth Catherine Callahan Moore, died around 1912. So this would put Jim's disappearance in 1912 or early 1913. She was very much alert and could remember things very well.
