* John McCallum (Sr.) came from Scotland and married Sarah Gee. There appears to be two graves dated 1862 for the same John McCallum as listed below. It is questioned which site contains the remains of John McCallum (Sr.). Perhaps the joint stone for John & Sarah on the McCallum Cemetery is only a token to John who is actually buried at the Gee site. He was born in Scotland around 1783 as indicated on his tombstone (died at age 79 in 1862).

And life's long warfare is closed at last, His soul is found in peace"
