My mother was a Caldwell (her father was James Robert-grandfathers on his side were Ollie Otis Caldwell-William Andrew-James Lawrence-a series of 3 named Thomas-captain John F-Joseph Alexander—Alexander “John” (1639)-John Caldwell (1603) question starts with this John of 1603. I found Elizabeth Mcdowall Wallace on his mother’s side & it may appear there could be some direct line to Richard II & IIi of Scotland and back to James of England. I’m not sure if you are still researching, but I can’t find any further info on Elizabeth McDowall Wallace which seems to be where some more interesting history begins. Do you have any further details on her (her parents etc.)? If I’m correct, her father & grandfathers were William Wallaces-who may have direct lineage to other royalty. Thank you!
Any info is appreciated.

My father arrived in America from Galston Scotland. His name was William Caldwell. He changed his name when he arrived to William Caldwell Sharpe. He arrived in the late 19th century. He eventually became an auditor for the United Mine Workers. He lived in Central Illinois, Decatur and Taylorville. He also lived in Iowa.

He married Janet Patterson Greene Wilson in America. She was born in Glascow.

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?
