Armstrong Cemetery Milton Indiana

This is a transcription of Armstrong cemetery in Milton township, Jefferson County, Indiana which was transcribed in 1941 as part of the DAR cemetery transcription project. The value of this transcription is that in many cases they transcribed headstones which may today no longer exist. Had it not been for this project these records may have been lost due to the natural regression of cemeteries. Many of the cemeteries may be known by a different name today, we use the name they were identified as in 1941. Armstrong, Charles P. (?), s of John & Sarah Armstrong, Feb. 2,1835-Dec. 12, 1865.

McCallum & Bayley

Among the leading business firms of the county, McCallum & Bayley, of John Day, occupy a well deserved position. Established in 1892, they have steadily grown until their reputation is assured not only for the volume of business transacted but for their integrity as well. They cater to both the stockman and miner, and their facilities have enabled them to buy direct from the Eastern manufacturer, the benefit of which is given their customers. They also own and control the John Day Telephone Line, running a distance of thirty-five miles from John Day to Dayville. Mr. F. I. McCallum is a native of California, coming to this county in 1863, and E. J. Bayley is a native of England, coming to the state in 1880, and to the county in 1884. They are both progressive men, and have always given liberally towards any enterprise leading to the advancement of Grant...

Biographical Sketch of Finlay McCallum

Finlay McCallum, County Treasurer, is a son of Finlay and Christian (Campbell) McCallum, and was born in Breadalbane, Perthshire, Scotland, January 12, 1813, and received his education in the parish schools of that county, including the classics. He is good in mathematics. He became a school teacher at fifteen years of age; came to Canada in 1833, and continued teaching until 1853, the first two years in Toronto, and after that mainly in the County of Halton. From 1853 to 1855 Mr. McCallum farmed in the Township of Nassagaweya; then became Deputy Registrar of the County, and occupied that position until appointed Treasurer in June, 1860, which latter office he has held for twenty years. He is a good sample of the “honest Scotchman;” and the people of the county have the greatest confidence in his integrity. He is a very faithful county official, and a member of the Presbyterian Church. Mr. McCallum has a farm in the Township of Esquesing, three miles from Milton, and there makes his home. He is often called upon to act as Auditor for the County Agricultural Society. In politics he is a Conservative, rather mild of late years, owing, probably, to his official position in the county. He has been married since November 1, 1850, his wife, before her marriage, was Jane Laidlaw, a native of Halton County. Her parents were from Scotland. Mrs. McCallum is the mother of eleven children, nine of them, six daughters and three sons are yet living. Agnes, the eldest daughter, is the wife of John Creighton, farmer, in Culross, County of Bruce; the others are...
