News/Obit* 3 August 1916  Millville – M. C. Callahan, well known throughout the county, shot and probably fatally wounded himself last Sunday morning. After requesting that the dinning room door be closed while the family was at breakfast Mr. Callahan drew a revolver and fired two shots, one on the right and then on the left side of his head, both of which fractured the skull but did not enter the brain. He has since been unconscious and there is little hope of his recovery. The attempt to take his life came as a great surprise to his family and friends as he had not even hinted at suicide. Mr. Callahan is a civil war veteran, having been a member of Co. A. 125th O.V.I. He was badly wounded in battle and left on the field for dead. He recovered however, but was never free from pain. For several years he has been an invalid and ten days ago his condition became much worse. It is supposed that increasing pain drove him to despair and to commit his rash act. Several weeks since Mr. and Mrs. Callahan celebrated their golden wedding. They have four sons.

News/Obit 11 August 1916  Greenford - August 10 – M. C. Callahan died at his home in this place on the night of August 2. Deceased was the youngest child of Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Callahan and was born in Green township March _, 1846, and here most of his life was spent. In 1862, at the age of 16 years, he enlisted in Co. A. 125th O.V.I., and served until the close of the civil war in 1865, making for himself a most honorable record. On Jan. 17, 1864, he was severely wounded in battle and left on the field for dead. He revived, however, and was taken to the home of Judge Swan and when he had sufficiently recovered in March of the same year rejoined his regiment. On July 3, 1866, he was married to Miss Persannah Hahn of Springfield township and on the third of last month they celebrated their golden wedding. Four sons were born to them, Delmont, Emmor, Perry and Ray, who, with the widow and two grandchildren, Iona and Helen Callahan, survive. Mr. Callahan was for a good many years engaged in the real estate and insurance business and had a wide circle of acquaintances and friends. Largely attended funeral services held from the family home Sunday afternoon were conducted by Rev. H. C. Brilhart of the Leetonia Lutheran church while members of Trescott Post, G.A.R., of Salem, of which the deceased was a member, carried out their ritual, and Greenford Lodge, K of P. had its service at the grave in the center cemetery.
