Hello Cousins! My line hails from New Hampshire. My Grandfather was New Hampshire born and came to MN and started a line there. Many Caldwell's are travelers and have started lines from the original group coming from Ulster,Londonderry and Antrim, Ireland being displaced Scots. My family always referred to their ancestors as Scotch-Irish and the New Hampshire Caldwell's as Yankees as they did not keep slaves but hired persons to do house and farm work when needed. My grandfsther's uncle went to Hawaii to teach and raised a family there. I met he and his wife as a child. Some traveled to west coast of Portland Oregon, and California and everywhere we have family. Our original ancestors were from Scotland via France and starting in Italy in Roman times. Many records are in New Hampshire as well as many graves. Some of the information has to be verified as many family trees are incorrect linking persons of similiar names or a father and son with same names as the same person, the dates of birth and death help to know who is of what generation. We know that those who came first on one of the ships were related. There were either 3 or 5 boats leaving for America in the early 1700's. Theses were large mast ships most with groups of three large masts. The state that we know of as Massachusetts and New Hampshire were one. The British settled 1620-1642 in Jamestown, Virginia settled 1607 and Plymouth Bay Colony in Massachusetts with Piligrims. The proprieters and British gave land to these new settlers and had stipulations on what needed building or clearing and much time was devoted to highway building and clearing and surviving. The Puritan and Quakers came before our Caldwell clan and some notations say they didn't always agree on or work together well as the Scotch- Irish were of Presbyterian belief or Baptists or Congregational belief and the Puritans and Quakers had more restricted beliefs. You also have Dutch, Swedes and German peoples and Africans that the British brought in for years starting in the 1600's.

I am a great granddaughter of Flora A. Caldwell and Giles Smith. I have a bunch of info for you, if you would like it. For instance, Flora's son Wilson died 12/15/1945, not in 1948.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience and thank you so much for putting up this website. I was absolutely thrilled to find it.

Take care,

There is a Caldwell clan resident in South Africa, my Uncle, David Caldwell is in the process of pulling together our family tree, roots & all ... would be very interesting if and when we hooked up with one of the branches set out here. Will refer this website to him to use as he gets further up the tree.

Kind Regards,

Odette U Caldwell

I have just come across your website. Thanks for providing this service. I have been doing research on the family of John Caldwell, 1st Lt.Gov of KY. This is the line of my Father-in-law. FYI, I noticed in the descendant chart that his children, particularly Terah Templin Caldwell, born 17 Mar 1793,KY, was not listed. His son John Robert, born 21 Nov 1824, KY, was my wife's gggrandfather.

I am researching our family lineage. I have traced back as far as John Caldwell born 1824. This line of the Caldwells are in CHambersburg Pennsylvania.I know he had a son John William Caldwell born in 1854 in Dayton Ohio. I am trying to link my line to the line from Ireland and so far I have hit a brick wall. Anyone that can help with any information would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
