Our 112th reunion is to be on
Saturday, August 18th, at the Grange Hall in Wiley’ Corner, St. George, Maine.
Many reunions have been held there in past years. The ladies will serve us a
sandwich luncheon, with molded salad, dessert, and beverages; and we will have
a speaker - Jim Skoglund, who has done a good deal of research into the
Kalloch family and who is also responsible for the restoration of the nearby
North Parish Church Cemetery which holds a number of Kallochs. Leola Robinson
is making the arrangements for us, and I suggest that you bring along your
gravestone-rubbing equipment, as there are some wonderful specimens in this
beautiful old cemetery. I know Harold Kalloch.. especially will ‘be happy
about the change in site, because this is where many of his family are buried
- as are mine.
To get there - if you come north from Warren - go to Thomaston on Rte. 1 and turn right at the Knox Memorial onto Rte, 131 which takes you directly into Saint George.
summer’s [111th] reunion the following officers were elected: Nancy K. Sack,
President; Eleanor Johnson, V. P.; Hazel Hills, Sec.-Treas.; Peter
Richardson, Historian; Ray Joyce, Ass’t. Historian; Charlene Black,
Chaplain; and Mabel Rollins, Hon. Chaplain.
I talked with
Ken Kalloch last summer; he is 18 and lives
in Concord, N.H. His family started coming to the reunions three
years ago at the urging of Harold Kalloch. He and his father, David
Kalloch, are descendants of the original Matthew Kalloch. Isn’t it nice to
have our younger family members interested?
If you can get the December, 1977,
issue of Down East, there is a. letter from Elmer Rising of Reading,
Mass., which refers to “my wonderful mother, who was one of a family of
Kallochs who lived at Wiley’s Corner.” There is also a picture of his
Mabel Rollins will be 97 on June
29th and Ed Rollins was 101 on June 1st. Address: Mechanic St., Rockland,
Last September Stan and Lois Kalloch stopped at my house in Stone Ridge to visit and brought their nephew, Kurt Hoffses, who turned out to he my neighbor! We were living a few miles from each other and shared the same great, great grandfather, Alexander Kalloch, IV, of Wiley’s Corner. Small world.
We have about $150 in the bank but
will need some for microfilming old records and covering the mailing and.
printing costs of this Newsletter.

On a trip to Nova. Scotia last
summer I discovered a nest of Kellocks and have been in touch with Winston
Kellock of New Glasgow. He offered to grave-stone hunt for early Kellocks
there but weather and undergrowth have hampered him up to now. This is a
promising lead because the home parishes back in Scotland were usually put
on these early gravestones.
