  • Notes 
    • When James Robert Callum became a licensed North Carolina pharmacist is not known. However, his Pharmicist License Number is very early: 00082. License Status: Deceased. Discipline: No. Source: North Carolina Board of Pharmacists. He is seen in the 1850 US Federal Census as 33 years old, living in Milton, Caswell County, North Carolina, and Occupation: Druggist.

      Note the possibility that a son of James Robert Callum, William Lewis Callum, also was a North Carolina licensed pharmacist and that father and son had sequential pharmicist license numbers issued by the State of North Carolina.

      Horrible Accident at Milton -- An Esteemed Citizen Killed

      Milton, N.C., May 18, 1876

      "I am deeply pained to inform you that Dr. Newbell was killed to-day by a runaway horse attached to a buggy. He hired Chas. L. Oliver's horse and buggy this morning to take Dr. Dodson over into Virginia to see G. W. Thompson, and in descending the hill to the Milton ferry the hold back straps broke and the buggy running on the horse, the animal posted off and threw both men out of the buggy. Dr. Dodson does not seem to be much hurt but Dr. Newbell was thrown out at the horse's heels, his head struck a rock and was badly gashed and remained speechless for about two hours when he breathed his last. Truly in the midst of life we are in death. He will be greatly missed both as a man and a druggist, having been thoroughly instructed by Dr. James R. Callum, of Greensboro, one of the best druggists in the State. As a man every body liked him, and the poor found in him a friend. He was a leading member of the Baptist Church of this place."
