* (From Charlene Ramel mramel@greene.xtn.net) Solomon Greathouse did not die in 1849. I do not know if he simply deserted Sarah Starcher Greathouse or if he divorced her, but Solomon
died in Nashville TN after 09 Apr 1865 (Lee's surrender. This is according to a John T.? Higgins, deposed.) He enlisted in the CW in Ironton, Ohio on 26 Aug 1864 for a period of 3 years under the name of Solomon McDade (44 yrs of age.) He fought with Co E 173d Ohio Infantry Volunteers. 2nd Lieut. M. Martin took his oath. He has apparently remarried to a Margaret Kelley, who applied for a widow's pension. I have 5 or 6 documents, including his Volunteer Enlistment, General Affidavits and Depositions taken. Margaret's pension application was denied.

William Madison MCCUTCHEON [Parents] was born 1802 in Greenbrier Co., VA. He died 1865 in Nicholas Co., WV and was buried in Boggs Cemetery, Reedy, Roane Co., WV. William married Nancy CALLISON.

It is said that about 1728, Robert McCutchen and his brothers came to the colonies from Glasgow, Scotland. Robert settled in Augusta County, Virginia. He married Margaret Callison. Her parents are unknown, but there were many marriages among the McCutcheons, Callisons and McClungs, all of whom settled in Greenbrier County, Virginia. The son of Robert and Mary McCutcheon, Jones McCutcheon, married the daughter of William “Grandfather Billy” McClung. Jones’ son, William Madison McCutcheon, born in 1802, came to Wirt County in 1852 at age 50 with wife Nancy Callison who was also age 50. They lived on McCutcheon's Run in the Spring Creek District of Roane County then Virginia. Barnabas (Barney) Hylbert who arrived either with them or shortly thereafter married their daughter, Mary. Another source refers to him as the Reverend W. M McCutcheon and says he came from Greenbrier County to Fayette County then to what is now Wirt County about 1845. He settled on what is now McCutcheon's Run, a branch of Left Reedy named for him. His son James later owned the farm and at his death, Guy McCutcheon became owner of this farm. He sold it to J. Clyde Law.
It is believed that James Callison was born about 1739 in Ballyhagen, Armagh, Ireland. Records of the Burlington New Jersey Quaker monthly meetings show a James Callison was received on certificate from Bellyhagan, Armah County, Ireland dated 8/5/1763. From 1787 to 1825 there are records of several land grants for a James Callison in Greenbrier County, Virginia. His granddaughter was Nancy Callison who married William Madison McCutcheon, probably in Nicholas County, West Virginia.
