Calliham History
"Calliham, originally known as Guffeyola, ... was originally named for Hiram Harvey McGuffey, who owned a store on the site; in 1923 the community was renamed for Joseph Thomas Calliham, a rancher and the owner of the townsite. The community began on the Calliham Ranch during an oil-prospecting boom in 1918. ..." - From Handbook of Texas Online:
