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.

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?

I am Jana Lynn Thompson, nee Ryan. I am constructing the genealogy of my family, part of which includes a Caldwell line. My maternal grandmother was Georgia Elizabeth Caldwell, daughter of William Hardin Caldwell, son of William Leonard Caldwell, son of Robert Alexander Caldwell, who was killed on March 25, 1856, while fighting in the Indian wars in Oregon and is buried in Selma, Josephine CO., Oregon.

I have additional information on this line. I wish to confirm your identity and pertinent information with regard to the Caldwell family.

In doing research came across this site. Very interesting and informative. Would appreciate the keeper of this guestbook to let me know if this is active and how I can join the conversation to determine where my family is located in the great Caldwell clan. Thank you.

Greetings. I have been in touch with John Caldwell in the past, who maintains or did maintain this site. We have now placed all our Caldwell relatives on another site, Check the following Descendency link to see our line. We are particularly interested in any info on Henry and Margaret Caldwell of Clady, Ardstaw Parish, Co. Tyrone, my gg grandparents, who were born in Co. Tyrone, but emigrated to Canada and are buried at Iroquois, ON. Any info about them or their forebears would be of tremendous interest. My mother was a Caldwell, hence the interest. Thank you so much.

Thank you for providing all of this information about the Caldwells. I'm distantly descended from "William Caldwell, b. abt 1628, Glasgow & d. 1672." I have also visited the ruins of the church and the grounds of the Caldwell estate in Donegal. So, this website is an exceptional genealogical journey for me of this family connection - one I only recently learned about through FTDNA.

Again, thank you very much for all your work in this regard.
