Scope and Content

The McCalister Family was in Louisville by the early 1800s. Daniel McCalister was a contractor and builder. He and his son, Thomas Fleming McCalister, were also listed in the city directory as plasterers. William Hanna McCalister, son of Thomas F. McCalister, moved to Tx. in the 1850s and served in the Confederate Army. After the war he lived in Tx. where he was married in 1866. He returned to Louisville about 1885. His son, Edgar Ralston McCalister, was a dealer in hay, corn, and oats with a store on Green (now Liberty) Street in the late 1890s. He married Rachael Ernestine Moreman, a daughter of Willis Moreman of southwest Jefferson County. The collection contains ambrotypes, tintypes, and late 19th and early 20th century Photographs. Identified persons include Thomas Fleming McCalister, Martha Jane Hanna McCalister, William Hanna McCalister, Mary Ellen Ralston McCalister, Edgar Ralston McCalister, and Rachael Ernestine Moreman. There are Photographs of Edgar R. McCalister's store and school groups at the Baker School on Cane Run Road (1916), and Valley Elementary School (ca. 1903 and 1904). Family groups are pictured at the Willis Moreman farm house in Valley Station, ca. 1890
