David died between 19 Oct 1765 when he wrote his will, and 6 Mar 1769 when the will was
proved. Like his brother, Thomas (see above), David served in the French and Indian War. His widowed wife, Mary, moved to Kentucky.

A report states that David Caldwell's will was dated 19 Oct 1765 and was probated 6 Mar 1769.


The information I have is from Caldwell files in the Kentucky State Historical Society library,

David Caldwell, son of John and Margaret Phillips Caldwell, was born in Ireland and his children
were: John, who married Dicey Mann, Charles, James and David (Varner), who was my ancestor.
The LDS "FamilySearch" files show: David Caldwell, son of John and Margaret Phillips Caldwell,
was born 7 Jul 1709, Donegal, Ireland; married Mary Dudgeon about 1745 (she died after 1820
in Mercer County, KY); died 1769 and buried at Cub Creek, Charlotte, Va.

Kentucky Genealogy and Biography, Vol V says: David's widow and children went to Kentucky
and settled at "Caldwell's Station" near Danville on Filson's 1784 map of Kentucky. Also, David's
brother, Robert, settled in Kentucky in 1781 and died in 1806 near Danville. They were the only
family of John and Margaret Caldwell to go to Kentucky.

I have David and Mary Caldwell's son, David Varner Caldwell, born 11Mar 1753 in Va. He
married Phoebe Mann in Logan County, Ky., and their children were: Josiah, Thomas (b.12Dec
1776), Francis, Sally, David, James, Dicy (McAfee), William, Phoebe (Adams), John (my
ancestor, b.2Nov 1790, Boyle Co.,Ky), Cary A., Betsey (Caldwell), Jackson, and Samuel.
Pheobe Mann Caldwell was a sister or cousin of Dicey Mann, wife of John Caldwell who was the
oldest son of David and Mary Dudgeon Caldwell. - liz delaplain
