Hi
I am Caldwell. My grandmother is Mary Gertrude Caldwell; her father was Christopher Caldwell married Florence McJanet. They lived in Quebec then Quill Lake, Sask. I think. Christopher Caldwell's dad was James Caldwell. My DNA shows Irish blood. I wonder if they originated from Scotland way back. I heard from Grandmother about the caldwell castle in Ireland. I hope to go there one day! My grandmother's brothers all served in the war. Clarence Caldwell died in the war and is buried in Europe.

John Rogers 1825 letter states that his mother Margaret Caldwell 1st married William Rogers and after he died in October 1750 she married my ancestor James Mitchell with whom she had 5 children. The marriage to James Mitchell was probably 1751 with a first child born in 1752. If Margaret Caldwell was born in 1712, then she would have turned 45 in 1747 and would have had a significant decrease in conception due to menopause. Having 5 Mitchell children between 1752 and and 1757 calculates to a child born every 15 months.

A WikiPedia web page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_and_female_fertility ) shows the decline in female fertility over time and by age 45 it's down to 3%. I really question the 1712 birth year for Margaret Caldwell who married William Rogers 1st and James Mitchell 2nd.

Hello I just came across this website and wanted to leave the comment on how interesting all the information is.. I am the grandson of Donald P. Caldwell. I'm not sure if this is the same Caldwell Family or not, but regardless to say its still an interesting read. If it is the same family I hope to hear from you and gain more information.

I dont believe I have commented here before but I will now. I see that you have failed to include the fact that David Caldwell- my 7th Great Grandfather- was a slave owner. He was a prominent man with what would have been considered wealth and like so many "good reverends" he used human beings to attain his riches. Why not state the facts? I am personally not proud of these grandparents of mine- David & Rachel .

My Paternal Grandmother was a Caldwell. I have done quite a lot of research and have come across several notable Caldwell's and their history that are not on this website. I would like to add the information. What is the process? I tried to start an acct. and login, but the link was not working. Regards

Thank you for providing this fascinating and well-designed website. I'm interested in knowing who the first person bearing the surnames Caldwell was? And what primary source is this information in? If anyone out there knows, please let me know.

I am a Caldwell & proud of my heritage. I tried to sign up for the discussion forum, but it wouldn't let me. Thank you for creating a website all about our amazing name & heritage.

I just typed a fairly long note, but do not know if it came through. It appears I must start all over, but don't have time right now.

Later today or this evening, I will try again.

Please notify me via e-mail if you received my message about two Caldwell ministers who served churches in Fort Worth, Texas, in the early years of the 20th century.

Thanks!

Greetings from Fort Worth, Texas.

Just this morning, I reached your website during a search for David Caldwell's story. I am researching and writing the history (for a book) of our local First Presbyterian Church. One of its early ministers was William Doby (spelled, by some sources, Dobie) Caldwell, a descendant of the David of Log College fame.

Fort Worth's first Cumberland Presbyterian Church also called a minister surnamed Caldwell: Joseph Weisinger Caldwell. I have not finished tracing his line (because genealogy and history are inseparable), but he came from a Caldwell family associated with a church on Cub Creek in Virginia, and he was related to John Caldwell Calhoun of South Carolina.

I believe that Caldwell was a fairly common name among Scots-Irish immigrants. Since I have come this far with both the Presbyterian (Southern, PCUS) William Doby Caldwell (1865-1915) and the Cumberland Presbyterian Joseph Weisinger Caldwell (1860-1946), I am hoping you might be able to help me determine whether they had common ancestors.

May we correspond? I would be glad to share details of the two Caldwell ministers' lives and careers. Both clergymen came to this city with impressive academic credentials.

May we correspond?

Thanks,
Juliet
