I'm looking for photographs of William Lowndes Calhoun, the youngest son of John Caldwell Calhoun, seventh vice President of the United States. I've seen one attributed daguerreotype of this man, but would like to see other representations. I would be grateful for any leads. Thanks in advance! K.

After neglecting it for quite some time I decided to spend some time today in expanding my family tree. It appears that I am descended from the Caldwell line by way of Abigail Bain Caldwell who was a daughter of Samuel C. Caldwell and Elizabeth Lindsay. Thanks to this website I was able to trace the Caldwell line back quite a bit. I will be returning to this site to learn more about the Caldwell family history. Thank you.

I am a descendant of the Caldwells--My great grandfather was Jonas Caldwell of Ravenna Kentucky. I have 2 questions/comments. We descend from Sir James of Caldwell Castle in Fermanagh in Northern Ireland I'm assuming? My cousin traveled there last year to visit. Second-- I saw a story re the myth that we were related in some way to Jesse James? He shows up on my National Geographic DNA list as a maternal match, The Caldwells are on my Maternal side--- so maybe not a myth after all?

I have come across a book in my Mother’s belongings dated 1768 Select sentences. In side hand written inscription
Enoch David’s book
Bought of David Caldwell in 1773
Thought this might be of interest to your family.
I would like it to go back into the possession of family.

So let me ask you this, in your piece on Monnette, what evidence do you have that Orra Monnette ever sold his services as a professional genealogist?


JAC: I never suggested that Monnette sold anything.  As mentioned, Anjou was known to charge as much as $9,000.  As to Monnette, among others, as also mentioned, the July 1976 edition of the American Genealogist stated that Monnette and the others, "are so unreliable that nothing they say should be accepted without clear and unmistakable verification"

Thanks for this interesting research. I have been researching my own line from New Zealand. I have got back to a great, great grandfather, who emigrated from Londonderry (Derry) but that's where it stops for me.

I'm looking for information about John Caldwell, born somewhere in PA in 1800. He moved to Ross, County, Ohio sometime before 1918, when he married Sarah McFarland. They had 3 children that I know of - Malinda in 1821, Katherine in 1825, and and my great-grandfather Samuel in 1833. I believe John died in 1843 in Ross County, Ohio, but I have been unable to confirm that.

I'm searching for information on John's parents, siblings, birthplace, etc.

Does anyone here have any information about him?
Best regards,
Jenny Caldwell

Looking for any information on CHILDREN of Elizabeth Caldwell Moore (b. 1684) and her husband James Moore. Elizabeth was a sister of John Finley Caldwell. She and James came across from Ireland with John on the "Eagle's Wing" to Newcastle, DE in 1727.
