I am a granddaughter of Mary Maxine Caldwell, who was the daughter of Lester Earl Caldwell, who was son of James Lennon Caldwell, who was son of John Caldwell Jr, who was the son of John Caldwell Sr, who was the son of Joseph Caldwell. I think Joseph was the son of William but I am not sure?(from Ireland)
They may have emigrated first to New Castle , Delaware but I can trace them with certainty from Pennsylvania, then Ohio and then to Iowa. The Caldwell farm in Lewisburg, Iowa was held in the family until last year. There is a Lewisburg cemetery on the corner of the farm where there are many Caldwells.

I also can confirm the Jesse James story that my grandmother shared. I wish I had remembered more detail but the gang stopped by the Lewisburg farm for some water or food and they were nice.(was the jist of it)

Just stumbled upon your site. Lovely to see more info on the family. I follow the direct US line from John Caldwell 1624-1692 (and Sarah Dillingham 1624-1722). I am in the process of slowly sifting through generations of records and artifacts and organizing all. Records include family tree info going back to the 1300-1400s in England and Scotland for some lines. Most of the Caldwell rcords and artifacts date from the 1700s and 1800s related to the Captains (Eben, Ebenezer, Eben and Albert Henry). Though I do also have the diary of Ebens daughter while crossing the Atlantic with her father on a trip to England (lovely early view of the sailing by a young woman which I am in the process of transcribing) and also John Caldwell’s cane as one of the earlier artifacts. Once done with full review will be publishing parts and then deciding where to leave the lot, as I am the end of the direct line (all will be going to a museum most likely in MA possibly in Ipswich). It will be awhile (most likely a few years) getting through all but if anyone has questions regarding lines in the US or prior, where they have missing or incomplete data feel free to send me your questions and I will keep my eyes out for such as I review. Note: I did see reference on one record of a possible early clan settlement site off of Routen Burn (water). Does anyone else have mention of this?

Hello Fellow Caldwells,

I have traced my ancestry back to the Caldwell Castle in Ireland and beyond into France, from there to the settlements in America, namely in Virginia. I started my research years ago by sending a query the local newspaper in reference to my grandfathers birth place in Floyd County, Virginia. We received an answer from a third cousin in Richmond, Virginia, this opened up the door for me. We went to Floyd and met some second cousins, who took us to the old Hugh Crockett Caldwell farm, and visited the Caldwell Cemetery on the farm grounds.

Since then I have been using the LDS site and Google to study my connection to Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and England.

I have taken two DNA tests, 23 & ME and Ancestery.com, they both provided valuable background information on my early relatives.

My grandparents, nor my dad and his siblings, or any of the Caldwell relatives ever spoke about their ancestry. Here I am in my mid 70's and now I know where I came from. I had a second cousin living less than fifty miles from me sixty years ago and my dad and grandparents said nothing, she was from the Floyd area. I finally met her in Virginia, she is Betty Ann Rice, what a classy lady, full of love for people. I am thankful I met her before she passed away a few years ago.

I could go on about those famous and fabulous Caldwell men and women and the distant relatives who fought and built this great nation we call America and home. I thank God for blessing America.

Sincerely,

Don W. Caldwell
