ROBERT P. CALLAHAN, farmer, post-office Greenville, was born in West Salem Township June 3, 1829, and is a son of John N. and Elizabeth (Patterson) Callahan, natives of Lancaster County, Penn. They were married in Fayette County, Penn., and in the spring of 1827 came to Mercer County, and settled in Pymatuning Township. Some two years afterward they removed into West Salem, where both resided until death, which occurred in 1871 and 1882, respectively. They reared four children: Edward W., deceased; Robert P., Margaret, wife of Joseph McGranahan, and Nancy, wife of A. D. Roberts. Politically Mr. Callahan was a Democrat, and one of the well-known, respected citizens of West Salem. Robert P. has always lived in this county, and the greater portion of his life in West Salem Township. He was married June 3, 1858, to Miss Eliza J., daughter of Adam and Frances Hill, of Greene Township. Mrs. Callahan was born in that township, and is the mother of six children, all of whom are living, viz.: Elizabeth, wife of Ransom J. Brown; Hiram W, Frances A., John N., Maggie and Mary A. Mr. Callahan is a stanch Democrat, and has filled several of the township offices. He has always taken an active interest in local public affairs, and is now serving as school director.
