I am working on my family tree through Family Tree and have come to this branch:

Jehu Johnston married to Margaret Jane Caldwell of Newberry, NC (b1758). I am showing her parents as Capt. John Caldwell(b1726)and Elizabeth Gilman (b1730). John Caldwell's parents were William Findley Caldwell (b/Ireland) and Rebecca Parque (b/either Ireland, prob. France, 1707). Does this track with your records? I noticed Elizabeth Gilman was not listed, although women's life expectancy at the time was obviously low and multiple marriages appear to be the norm. Thank you for any help.

Hi -- In reference to your Robert Caldwell married to Mary Logan.

Just in response to your note on your record. Robert Alexander Caldwell Of Londonderry born 7/21/1721 died 10/1799 in Alexandria PA) ALSO married a Mary Logan (born 1730 in Londonderry - died 7/7/1799 in Alexandria PA) so they are NOT the same person, just same basic names - it's a whole other branch. They settled Juanita Valley and have tons of documentation in books and in the DAR etc. It might be fun to add this line into your records - in your copious spare time ;-)

Robert Alexander Caldwell is one of my gggggggrandfathers and one of the GAZILLION Ulster Scots I have in my family, making me a Daughter of the American Revelation an absolutely ridiculous number of times. They really stuck together when they came to the US -- and Wow the Ulster Scots HATED the British. AND my family passed down the stories -- I was shocked at doing research based on my grandmother's stories -- and they were all true -- hundreds of year of grudges and now I know the origins - HAHAHAHA! I love my family I must say, and hope all Caldwells who visit find the same links to their history and all the strength and love and best wishes sent down the generations too!!

I am enjoying learning more about my ancestors. I descend from Daniel McJunkin (6th gggrandfather) and through him to Joseph Alexander Caldwell (1659-1730) 9th gggrandfather.
I found this site trying to research Elizabeth Wallace Caldwell my 12th gggrandmother (b. circa 1580). Find a grave has a statement that her father and mother are William Wallace and Katherine Crawford; however, there is not confirmed source for that claim. If anyone has a reliable source, please pass that information to me. Thank you

Hi - hoping I can find some help. My third great grandmother was Eleanor "Ellen" Caldwell. Family records have her birth as 1826 in Ohio. She married Milton Sutton on April 25, 1843 in Portage County, Ohio. The wedding was witnessed by Robert Caldwell. She had two sons, James Oliver and Franklin Augustus Sutton before she died in 1851 at the young age of 25. She is buried in the Mottown Cemetery in Deerfield Township, Portage County, Ohio.

I have done research on but have not found any likely families yet that she could have belonged to. I don't have any proof that she was born in Ohio either.
Thanks for any help. Kim

9th Great Grandfather John came into Somerset County, Maryland Colony, in 1683 from Ballybogan, Clonleigh Parrish, County Donegal. He purchased two tracts of land which he named Ballybogan and Clonleigh. His son John is considered the founder of Salisbury, MD, and was cited in a study of early Maryland Colony representatives to government of Lord Charles Calvert. In that study the father was said to be born in Londonderry and a date was given. Londonderry Cathedral's records list a baby named John born that day to William Caldwell and Elizabeth Huston.
William was the first born son of John Caldwell and Mary Sweetenham.

My 5th great grandfather sold 200 acres in Salisbury (inherited from father William) and brought his family down to Green County, Georgia,
after service in the Revolution. My 3rd came over with his family to
Alabama in 1850. He entered service in Memphis in the Civil War in 1861,was wounded at the Battle of Resaca and died at the hospital in
Rome, GA in 1864.

My family has lived in the same area of East Alabama since 1850.

Caldwell is not my maiden name. I was married to Donald E Caldwell from 1956 until his passing in 1985. I remarried in 1992 and choose to keep Caldwell as my middle name. I am the mother of John Alan Caldwell(58) and the grandmother of John David Caldwell (32) Alan Camden Caldwell (7) and Ian Gary Caldwell (18 mo.) ( all John Alan's sons) I now reside in FL and frequently encounter the Caldwell name but not aware of any familial connections.

Hi, Enjoyed reading some of the articles on here. One of my ancestors Thomas Pollock married Elizabeth Caldwell who's father was John Caldwell of Lochside, Lochwinnoch. I don't know if they are related to any of the people on this site.

I'm the family genealogist at our house. My husband Tom Anderson's mother was born a Caldwell, a direct descendant of Rev. David Caldwell's brother Alexander. I'm finding interesting points of contact between the Caldwells and my own ancestors who lived in Mecklenburg Co and other parts of North Carolina during the same time period.
