DOUGLAS COUNTY
I am trying to find information on JOHN Creighton, who may have been involved in starting the first buildings that later became CREIGHTON College.
John was from IRELAND, and family legend say he brought over with him my ggg.. UNCLE OWEN MITCHELL Callahan (went by Michael in some accounts) when he came. (Owen was born June 22, 1822 in Ireland. I have no dates for John Creighton.)

John had a father and other brothers also had come over, living in OHIO and Nebraska.

ANY of this ring a bell???

OWEN CALLAHAN married MARY Mullady and they settled in parts of Illinois and Indiana.

THANK YOU!
Denise ELGIN, IL
