Hello! I located some of my family ancestry on this site. My grandfather was Dallas Caldwell. His father was Lanche O. Caldwell, married to Lula, but this site says his name was spelled differently. (Everyone called him L.O.).And his father was Charles Caldwell, married to Rachel McVey. Thank-you so much for creating this database! I can fill in much of the information that appears to be missing about Lanche Caldwell\'s relatives, dates of death, etc. I can see links to \"LIVING\" but can\'t get any information from there. Please help. Thanks!

Hello, My mothers maiden name is Caldwell, daughter of Henry and Dorothy Irene Caldwell, Henry and his twin brother, Albert Caldwell, children of Burl and Jessica (Wolcott) Caldwell, child of James Alexander and Rachel. I haven\'t found any of them in your website but wanted to leave a note in case anyone looking for the same line of Caldwell\'s happen upon here.

I am researching an 1822 folio Bible, the Columbian Family and Pulpit Bible (Boston, 1822) which apparently belonged to William Alexander Caldwell (b. 1837) and then to Major James Shapter Caldwell (1843-1866). The latter deposited the Bible with the South Carolina State Archives. See:,SPECIFIC=11569,DATABASE=SERIES

I can sent you a digital image of the family register from that Bible. I do not find a \"Major James Shapter Caldwell\" listed among the Caldwell\'s noted for Military Service, so I wonder if you have more information about his military service--assuming the title \"Major\" implies military service

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,

I am trying to prove John C Caldwell, (24 Jan 1821-1855) is son of Willis and Dicey Calwell. Do you have any material that might help me? Thank you.

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.

My ancestor is Eleanor Caldwell who married William Rutledge in 1740\'s Virginia. They moved to Sullivan County Tn about 1777. Does this connect with anyone?

I am a decendant of the Irish Caldwells that came to America. In the database there are many references to the Parish of Ballycogan, Co., Donegal, Ireland.

I don\'t find it in or on Google. There is a Ballyboggan in County Meath,Ireland

I am from the Caldwells of Missouri related to Kinkead Caldwell group. It seems I can trace back to Joseph 1720 and Samuel 1740? Va. Then I think back to Ireland to William 1577 then it goes dead. Anyone that has info from before 1577. Have heard so many stories I do not know which to believe. Anyone point me in the right direction.

I googled Caldwell to trace the descendants of Robert Caldwell, a London Missionary Society missionary to South India in the 19th century. In fact he was also a philologist and researcher and can be credited with identifying the South Indian languages as separate from Sanskrit-based languages. Would you have him in your database? 🙂 or perhaps I could ask the question the other way round: if you don\'t you might want to \"check him out\". 🙂

Hey there, to anyone who could help me. I\'ve always wanted to learn more about my heritage. The only thing I really know is that my father\'s grandfather was adopted by the Caldwells and I don\'t know how to learn anything else. My dad died Dec. 11th, 2011, from Walnut, Mississippi and his name is David Anthony Caldwell. If anyone could help me at all I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!
