How are you related to the Caughlan family? granddaughter of Lucille Belle Caughlan - Stevens
Would you like to exchange information with us? California

Comments:
I want to comment on Lucille Belle Caughlans children: George Ambrose Stevens married Ellen Claire Carmichael. Their children were Lori Ann Stevens (b. 10/23/1959) and Georgia Catherine Stevens (b. 11/21/49). Ardys Elizabeth Stevens married David Forsythe. Their children were David Forsythe Jr. & Norman Forsythe. Helen Louise Stevens married Chester Rohde but they later had their marriage dissolved through the church, as he was not faithful to her. They had Diana Mae Rohde (who was later adopted by Helens 2nd husband). Helen Louise married Wesley Nichols (known as "Nick") and they had Teresa (known as Terri). George Stevens was not the father of Julie Charleston, she was the daughter of Ellen Carmichael and her first husband Gilbert Charleston. Hope this helps!

Comments:
Greetings Caughlan cousins? I have questions about the Caughlan family. I've traced Sarah Childers Caughlans' family all the way back to the Howards of Virginia, the Earls of Surrey, and the Royal House of Stewart (King James I of Scotland is my 15th great-grandfather). But...the Caughlan line stops at Cornelius! Quite frustrating! My dad George Stevens, was in motion pictures in the 1930's & 1940's. (My dad was one of the 13 flying monkeys in "The Wizard of Oz" & was in many MGM musicals with Judy Garland & Mickey Rooney. There are LOTS of photos of George on my tree: http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/11440827/family. Anyone who wants to contribute to the tree is welcome. Let me have email addresses and I will send out invites. My cousin, Christy Forsythe Rocamora, has been looking into the Caughlan family as well. Lets connect & share!

Hi! It is Kristy again! I hope to reconnect with everyone to study some more genealogy! I've recently gotten married and I am now Kristy Rocamora! I loved seeing my photo from my Irish dancing days on the family site! It has been quite while since I have been able to work on our genealogy and I'd like to get in touch with whoever is currently interested in the project of learning more about Adam Clark. Thank you!

We found a 12" D. Caughlan bronze bell with yoke, wheel and clapper in my parents' barn in Tabor, Iowa. My father said the bell was in the barn when he bought the farm in 1946. We are wondering if it was the original church bell for the town of Tabor. The town of Tabor was started in 1854 by Congregationalist Rev. John Todd, who came from Oberlin College in the 1850's. We'd love to have more information on the bell, if you can provide!

How are you related to the Caughlan family? Mum's line

Do you have any family pictures to share? Not many
Comments:
My earliest ancestor in this line so far, is Francis Caughlan, also Martin Wickham, born perhaps c1800 in Ireland. Evidence infers that this line may be of goldrush or potato famine origins. If we are linked, it will be through an Irish connection I presume. However, many people left for the Australian rushes, following the US rushes.
Cheers, David

Hi. Have traced my family back to Francis Caughlan who was from Kilkenny in Ireland. He was transported to Australia on the old convict ship Parmelia in the early 1800s. His crime was vagrancy. I don't know of a connection with the Caughlan families in America but would be intersted if there is.

Caughlan family, <br> <br>I was a graduate of LIncoln High School in 1970. My sister Shari was a close friend of a Sally Caughlan during those years. After viewing your website, it appears that you may be the same family. I know that there was a younger brother, Brian. <br> <br>I realize that High Scool was a long time ago, and that our relationships change over time. I am just hoping that life has treated Sally well over the years, and would like to hear from her. <br> <br>Hoping to hear back from Sally. <br> <br>Regards, <br> <br>Mark Haas

How are you related to the Caughlan family? It is my last name, but I don't think we are blood related.
Would you like to exchange information with us? I live in Pensacola, FL and no, I do not have a website
Do you have any family pictures to share? No, not really. I think it would be neat to have an extended family on my father's side.
Comments:
I really like that there is a website for our last name. Although it is unlikely that we are blood related, I am aware that upon arrival, most Irish immigrants changed the spelling and pronunciation of their names to blend in with American tradition and to aviod persecution. This is true of my own great grandfather, who changed the pronunciation of our name from caw-glan to collin (the spelling has remained the same). This explains the coughlin, caughlin, collin and even collins.

You all have done a great job and I am sure that your families are proud.

Amanda

just wanted to update my history.Mother was Marcella Nebeker
She did not give her daughters middle names as she wanted
us to use the name of Caughlan for a middle name when we
married. I have recently remarried on April 11, 2000 to David William Klipfel., This after my previous husband
Glenn Paul Lewis died in June of 1984. I am overjoyed at
receiving your email and finding connections with our

Nice site.

I'm doing research for a friend, who is searching for her great grandfather, John Wesley McCue. She does have an old tintype picture and thinks he was born in 1837 and died in 1870. He married a Rebecca Wimsett in August of 1865. They had one son, Wilbur Birdsong McCue, on November 5, 1865. In doing a global search on John Wesley, your McCue name popped up.

Would appreciate any comments.

Thank you, Anna B. Good

I was delighted to meet with many of David Caughlan's descendants at the Union in June 2001, to learn more about him and to share my knowledge of his surviving bells. Special thanks to Mary Caughlan Kelley and Susan Caughlan for their help filling in the history of David's work as a bellfounder.

The governor of Virginia requested that all church bells be rung Friday, Sept. 14th at noon. I thought you would all enjoy knowing that Bob and I rang our two Caughlan bells; their lovely sound went out over the water and joined with the peeling of church bells in town. My friend, Arnie Saaf, rang the Caughlan bell in the Alton Methodist Church at exactly the same time. He said it sounded like a prayer.

On line 75 my father is mentioned as the son of Rebecca Caughlan and Dean Blake Hickman. My father is Dean Duff Hickman the first and not the second as you say it is on the website because my father and my grand father have different middle names. You also mention me as being Dean Duff Hickman the 3rd when I am the second.

What a great time we all had at the Caughlan Union! Today I was looking at the video I shot and couldn't help but smile! It was so wonderful getting to know all of you and I look forward to YEARS of connecting with all of you and many more as we discover other cousins over time. We WILL do this again!!!

I do want to say that I feel as though I have not thanked Charlie enough for all the work that he did helping Bill and I prepare for our gathering. The hours that he diligently worked with a cantankerous cyberworld, getting all of us informed and then working so hard on the name tags was monumental. Then, he spent hours during the union scanning photos and cataloguing information for us, and that is not to mention the books that he prepared andand printed out for us to peruse! Charlie, you're the best! Thanks so much again!

I look forward to seeing you all again and please, please, please, stay in touch!!!

Always,
Cousin Brian

PS - Anyone wanting a rubbing of Sarah's headstone can e-mail me and request it(specify color, please). Also, I am still working on the possibility of getting more Caughlan Bell replicas made (like the ones McKendree College had produced...)

Wasn't reunion great! We put over 2000 miles on the car, and it was worth every mile. Thanks Charlie for the name tags; they helped a lot. The visit to McKendree's Caughlan bell was the fulfillment of a dream for me. Sunday, I visited and photographed two more Caughlan bells for my book on Rev, David Caughlan. It was a delight to meet so many email friends and Caughlan cousins. See you in Baltimore!

The "union" was wonderful. It was very moving to visit the churches and the Caughlan bells as well as Sarah's grave site. It was also special to sing a hymn with my newfound family members. Thank you so much for all the work on this website Charlie, and to Bryan and Bill for all of their work. We are looking forward to the next "reunion". I hope the "green dots" turn out in droves for it.

Bill,
Thanks for all of your hard work! I'm sorry I haven't been very communicative. Do you need information about my dad & all of his offspring? I thought that J.P. & Michael were helping you with that. Looking through all of the ancestors, I was tickled to find that I share a birthday with some of them (I guess a lot of us do, probably). When we were all together in Springfield at Thanksgiving, there was lots of talk of the upcoming reunion. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it as I am due to have my second child on or about May 29 but send my pictures and whatever else you can. I hope that you and Bramblee are doing well.
Sincerely,
Amy

Willis Vern settled in Fairfield Iowa. Married Grace Koons. Had nine children - eight sons and one daughter: Larry, Robert, Don, Richard, Homer Jack, Marian, Charles, David Rae and Thomas. Grace died when Tom and David were still at home. Willis Vern then married Grace (will check on her maiden name and get back to you.) They never had any children together, but Grace #2 had children before she married Willis Vern. Tom and Marian are the only surviving siblings. David married Pauline Mae Heaton in Iowa. Had two children Eric Scott and Kristin Marie (adopted). They were raised in Lake Zurich, Illinois. David is buried in Lake Zurich. Eric married Kelly Catherine Klatt and has one son Justin Scott. Kristin married Thomas LaJeunesse and has two daughters (expecting their third 10/2000). The daughters names are Danielle Marie and Kaylie Alexandra. We have some additional basic information, but the email request from Les Umsted (Marian's son) has gone out to all the cousins we are in touch with, so we'll wait to see what comes back from them. This is an amazing web site! Great Job!

I am a descendent of Cornelius. My father was Donald Henry Caughlan, my grandfather was Vern Caughlan, his father was Adam, I'm a little fuzzy after that. I do have some documentation at home that I can check. The last few generations of my branch of the family lived in south eastern Iowa, although most of the descendents have now dispersed to the winds.

I have some pictures.

My son's name is Donald Cornelius Caughlan, after Donald and Cornelius.

My father did some geneological research in the 60's that seems to closely follow the story of Cornelius on your web site. The man that he did the research with was named Joe Caughlan, I think.
