This locality was originally known as Fork Lick after the large creek there.  It is believed that the first post office in that locality was named Johnson, and was established in 1830. About 1840, this Post Office closed, and we find the locality referred to as Callens, and Stower’s Store. On September 12, 1847, a Post Office was established under the name of Callensville, with Jonathan Callen as postmaster. This office was closed February 8, 1860, after a post office at Morgan was established January 3, 1856, with Benjamin F. (“Doc” )Hume as postmaster. This office closed in 1957.

NOTE: These records have been transcribed from several different sources, either by us or by other researchers and provided as a starting point to assist you in your research; we've verified as many as we could, but be aware that there may be errors (either mis-spellings on the original records, almost illegible writing on the records, and/or typing errors on my part), so make sure to double check them prior to assuming they're "the gospel truth". We will never deliberately include erroneous information in any part of this site.

These records have not been copied by either of this site's coordinators from other sites, as has been implied by some. Sources have included records from the E.E. Barton research files, military records, newspapers, microfilm and/or compiled lists that were provided by family members and other researchers. The majority of the additions to the marrriage index pages on 17 and 30 Jun 2007 were transcribed from FHC microfilm #973027.

If you have records that you'd like to see added to this site, please contact either Sherri or Suzanne and we'll be glad to add them to this collection.
