Tombstone at the The Pines Presbyterian Cemetery near New Oxford, Straban Twp, Adams Co, Pennsylvania:

Hugh Caldwell 1785 age 54

Means born ~1731 which doesn't match any Hugh Caldwell in the database. There is a land registered to William Caldwell in 1765 to a patch in Straban Township, Adams Co., PA near the graveyard.

My great grandmother was a Caldwell. Her name was Sarah Sinia/Sina Caldwell Walker. She was born in Lumpkin County, GA. Her father was Matthias Caldwell, mother. Mary Elizabeth Hutson, married in Lumpkin County, GA. His father was Meredith B Caldwell, mother, Winnie Ovaline Woody. From research I have seen so far, his father was one David Caldwell, mother Sarah Eliza/Elizabeth Gailey. "From the Atlanta Constitution beginning 1900 for the Historical Collections of the Joseph Habersham Chapter of the DAR Vol I 1902:
"David Caldwell, third son of William of the Caldwell Settlement in Charlotte County VA, married Miss Eliza Gailey and settled in Abbevile district in South Carolina., By this marriage there were 4 sons;
John Elliott
Joseph David
(No daughter listed, but further research has yielded a dauther named Nancy G.)
The latter part of his life was spent in Lumpkin County, GA near his 2 sons, Joseph and Meredith, who had large families.
Andrew died a bachelor in Wilkes County, GA.
Major, John Elliot Caldwell, born 12/6/1798, served his native state, South Carolina, with distinction, as majot of a militia, in the day when the state had 'camp musters' annually. He married Elizabeth Gardner and settled in Madison County, GA. He was a man of strict integrity and exerted high influence for morality and religion. he was a staunch Presbyterian and served his church 53 years as a ruling elder. he and his wife are buried in Alta Vista Cemetery in Gainesville, GA."
I guess my question would be, is this erroneous information?
Your kind attention to this would be greatly appreciated.

Joseph and Letitia (Britton) McCutchen had a daughter, Mary Elizabeth b.3/5/1828, d.12/20/1908 (m.1st to Frederic S. Anderson, m. 2nd to William Marlow. She is buried in Russell Cemetery, Winneshiek County, IA. The Marlow's had 4 children, including my great grandmother, Estella Anna Marlow,b.1866, d. 1933, m. Anton Arneson

Just thought you'd like to know because I've seen different trees showing no children - thought I'd set the record straight.

My husband is descended from Henry and Sarah Caldwell, both born about 1822 in Ireland, immigrated to Canada about 1857. They had 13 children 5 of which were born in Ireland and the others in Canada.

How do I share this information with this site?

I tried to register for the Discussion Forum but the system wouldn't let me.

Thank you

I enjoyed reading the Caldwell family history very much on your site. Well done, I must say. I surfed in looking for some history of my Pool(Pettypool)family of Fairfield, South Carolina. The Pool, Caldwell,Pannel, Grubbs and others moved together in group and settled in Pontotoc cty. Mississippi around 1840. Thanks for sharing your research with so many.

Signing on again after an absence of some years. I'm always searching for those connected to my great-great grandfather, Robert H. Caldwell, (b. ca 1815 - d. 1876) of County Tyrone. He was a shoemaker and a Presbyterian who married Mary Moore. In the early 1840s, they emigrated to Ontario, Canada, eventually settling in Grey County. One of their daughters, Catherine, married Lyman Smith in Buffalo, where they raised a large family.

Their son, William Robert (b. Co Tyrone 1836 - d. 1883 Durham, Ontario) was my great-grandfather. He served in the 100th Regiment of Foot and was stationed on Malta. He married a Cashel Co. Tipperary woman, Margaret Burke/Birch in Ottawa, 1867. They had 2 sons and 5 daughters.

DNA testing has helped in my research. So far, the only revelation has been a connection to three of the descendants of John Caldwell Calhoun, U.S. Vice-President during pre-Civil War times. We have done the BigY test and are enrolled in the McCarthy South of Ireland group.

Happy researching to all!
