Came across that Rebecca Caldwell is my 8th Grandmother and her daughter, Lucy, married Amos Richardson. Does the reunion Rebecca wanted still occur at the family cemetery?

looking for information for Alexander Caldwell (b abt 1750) who married Ester Rush.
We have the Deed with Robert Caldwell selling land that was given to him by his father Alexander Caldwell. We have the Luke Bible, that was William's with Robert John and William's births. Can we assume that they were brothers? If so no name of Alexander is in the bible. I have the will of Robert Rush naming Ester Rush and husband Alexander Caldwell. But nothing else!
any help would be a treasure! email

I registered for this site but I never received a conformation email. My hope is an administrator will be able to solve the issue.

I have a Caldwell I am searching for and I am hoping this site will help me gather information.

My fourth Great Grand father was :
William Caldwell
1773–1840
BIRTH 10 AUG 1773 • Berkeley, James City, Virginia Colony, BRITISH COLONIAL AMERICA
DEATH 26 APR 1840 • Pendleton, Kentucky, United States

William marries in 1799 Elizabeth Gosney in Ohio county Virginia .
I am looking for his father Alexander Caldwell
Looking to prove that Alexander was his father, and if Alexander was his father can I tie him to military service in Penn? To the Caldwells mentioned in the American revolutionary solders of Franklin county Penn, where it says Robert Rush ( Indian captive) one being Hester rush wife of Alexander Caldwell in the year 1768.
Mr. E.E. Barton papers show and Alexander and Hester Caldwell in 3 Berkeley county West Virginia Deed books involving land purchase and sale. There was a bible that William Caldwell owned and on the front page it says John Caldwell under his name its says:
Robert Caldwell was born 11th day of November 1762
John was born April 17 1770
William was born August 10th 1773 died April 26 1840
William married Elizabeth Gosney March 26 1799.
It goes on to list Williams son and Elizabeth's birth and death
I have not be able to determine if in fact an Alexander Caldwell was Williams father . I have not found any more documents of Alexander with a Hester Rush/Caldwell in Berkeley County West Va. I don't know if they came from Ireland or Scotland. Any information would be a treasure.
thank you ,

Regarding my post of earlier today regarding Paul Caldwell and wife Catherine Thumm, records suggest that Paul's father and grandfather are William Thomas Caldwell, b 1762, and Robert Caldwell Sr., b 1732. However not all records I have looked at - Ancestry, MyHeritage, ... are consistent.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Great source of information. Thanks to all.
I have Caldwells in my ancestry starting with my Maternal Great Grandfather, George J. Caldwell. Family records suggest his ancestry was first Dr. J.C. Caldwell, and second Paul Caldwell, whose wife was a Catherine Thum, the latter two born in 1795.
I cannot find any records on Paul and Catherine. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks, Steve Koch

My father, Lyle Dean Caldwell looked very much like previous descriptions as found if the Caldwell lineage.
He was large in stature, tall, dark skin, beautiful dark eyes, high cheek bones and rolling forehead. Many of the Caldwell traits I find in myself very talkative, generous to a fault though I am fair haired and lighter skin however my older sister is reflection of my father.
I live across the street from the old Caldwell Estate that was built near the Fort and across the street from Fort Scott Founders mansion.
My sister, Rebecca Caldwell now owns the original home that was once owned by Fort Scott founder.
Lyle Dean and Doris K Caldwell, Fort Scott residents had 5 daughters of which three remain all residing in Fort Scott Kansas

I have noticed that a number of people have realised that the Castle Caldwell lines have been added to the Caldwells of Ballybogan, Co. Donegal lines. These are different families. There was no reason for the Enniskillen Caldwells to travel from Fermanagh to Derry to have children baptised. John Caldwell's funeral entry has been documented several times in posts and lists his issue. His second wife remarried and her husband's will is available.

I was very excited to find this page as I have done a tremendous amount of research on Ancestry.com, Geni.com, and Familysearch.com dating back to 1150. I'm sure everyone has run into inconsistencies in their tree, especially going back that far, but welcome anyone's help in keeping my research going and accurate.

McConnellClan family tree on ancestry.com welcomes any research on the Caldwell lineage, esp. Mary Elizabeth Caldwell.

My maiden name is Caldwell and I’ve traced my family back to those who resided in the Castle. I love the information and photos to learn more about my heritage.

I am attempting to make a connection from my GGGgrandfather James C. Caldwell born 1755 and migrated to America about that time to his relatives in Ireland or UK. According to a decedents memory of her grandfather story, the family left a foreign shore for America. All died except three little boys. Reportedly, James C. was taken in by a Quaker Family in Philadelphia, PA. He married Rebecca Brooks in Philadelphia on 12/21/1780. Moved to Redstone, PA, then to Elk Run, Ohio where he farmed and died. His first son was named Thomas, therefore it is my guess that his father was also named Thomas, which was customary for the Irish.

Am looking for the children of JAMES MARION CALDWELL born 17 December 1833, son of JAMES WILLIS CALDWELL and DICEY MANN CALDWELL. My grandmother was a Caldwell, born around 1910. Her father died very young when she was just a little girl and I believe his name was Robert Lee Caldwell but this could be wrong. In any case I think that JAMES MARION was his father or grandfather. JAMES MARION (according to my mother, was in Hood’s 4th infantry regiment and taken prisoner at Gettysburg). My mother did quite a bit of research but never got it collated before she passed away. I have all her notes but it is in one of several large tubs that are too heavy for me to lift by myself. Hope to start digging through this coming winter.

My great great grandfather was a Caldwell and he was born in Lancashire around 1819. Having trouble finding any information about my Caldwells. His documentation is sparse.

Born in Glasgow in 1948, live in London, doing family history research.
I will get back to you all with info I have tracked down.
a. David Caldwell was my grandmothers father / she was born in 1873 in Glasgow.
b. Have you filed the Wikipedia article re CALDWELL, East Renfrewshire.
c. Have you entered into your Military History THOMAS CALDWELL (VC) in Wikipedia
d. You may wish to look at the National Museum of Rural Life at West Kittochside not far from Glasgow. The farm was donated after about 400 years of ownership by REID family and in the details,it mentions fights between REID and CALDWELL families!

Wonder if John Caldwell of Ballyyoogan d 1602 has a distinct parentage that deviates from accepted convention of John Wallace Caldwell of Ayr & Enniskillen

baptism records at Londonderry Cathedral, have a distinct set of children to those listed in John of enniskillens Funeral Entry.
