Excerpt from The Daily Journal - May 18, 1923:

WELL KNOWN CITIZEN IS CALLED BY DEATH

John A. Callahan, In Failing Health For Some Time, Expires At His Cold Stream Home

John A. Callahan, a resident of Cold Stream, died at about 10:30 Thursday evening, May 17th, the result of complications superinduced by paralytic strokes, which he had been afflicted for a number of years past.

His death, though not unexpected, came as a shock to his neighbors and many friends throughout this section. His demise will be greatly mourned by the entire community, and especially by those who knew him personally and were able to better appreciate his sterling qualities.

Mr. Callahan was born at Bellefonte in 1844, making his age over 79 years. He came to this region some 60 years ago, and resided here since. A Civil war veteran, Mr. Callahan was the son of Charles and Margaret Callahan, both deceased.

On May 7, 1871, he was united in marriage to Clarinda Bumgardner, a daughter of Crist and Martha Bumgardner, of Half Moon Valley, Centre County, the ceremony performed at that place. After his marriage, he returned with his bride to Philipsburg, and they have resided here since.

Besides his widow he is survived by four sons, Charles, Winfield, and Hobart, all living in Clearfield, and Harry, at home. One sister, Mrs. Cecelia Berkstresser, of Hublersburg, near Bellefonte, also survives. The sons residing at Clearfield and Mrs. Berkstresser were called to his bedside when it was seen death was approaching. Funeral arrangements have not been made yet.
