He then came to Wayne County, Iowa, settling where he now lives, on section 20, Clay Township, which then was a part of Washington Township. He at once entered 400 acres of unimproved land, and being a mechanic he built his own house. He improved and cultivated his land, and set out first tree in-Lewisburgh. He worked at his trade for several years, but of late years has devoted his attention to farming and stock-raising, and has now an excellent farm of 385 acres.

Mr. Caldwell was married December 2, 1846, to Abigail J. Curtis, a native of Madison County, New York, and a daughter of Reuben Curtis.

Of the seven children born to them only three survive-- Charles N., Harriet A. and Lewis N. Charles married Jeanetta Surbaugh, daughter of John H. Surbaugh, and has three children-- Claude H., Maude A. and Clyde N. Harriet married Curtis L. Alexander, of Nebraska, and has one child--Harl M. Lewis married Lucy E. Surbaugh, and to this union have been born two children--Lee L. and Harvey C. One daughter, Mrs. Sylvia Alexander, died at the age of twenty-nine years, leaving two children-- Claude C. and Lloyd S. Mr. Caldwell has served his township as clerk, and as justice of the peace, beside holding other local offices, all of which he filled with honor to himself and his constituents. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity.
