I'm at the library doin' some research on Human Rights and stuff like that. My folks came from Oglethorpe County, GA; John Miles and Ophelia Jackson Caldwell were my grandparents. I think I may be related to John C.(Caldwell) Calhoun from SC, but I'm not sure, and haven't had the motivation to search too far. I was an education administrator 'til 1996 when I retired. Since then I have been playing music for a living (yeah, living), but I love it. I forgot my URL (at library, not at my own computer) but I think you can find it.....hey, it's under construction, and aren't they all? Born in Orlando, went to LaGrange, GA High, grad. from Fla. State Univ. in Music, married Frances Gillham from Atlanta and moved to NJ in '61. Three kids, Russell, Katherine, Rachel. The Jackson Caldwells have a reunion every year, and have had since 1930's. Next year, north GA. Where are you? Nice chatting, Jack Caldwell

Hi, I am researching a "Polly" Caldwell who married a Peter McKinney, Jr. either in Halifax County, VA or Caswell County, NC before 1800. Your site is wonderful (I am a history nut) and I learned much HOWEVER I very RARELY visit Geocities websites becau e of the bombardment of those little ads and cookies. Your site requires many flips of the pages and everytime you do, you get hit with two of those blasted things. I appreciate the work you have done but will NOT revisit because of them. Thanks, Denis Wood

Tery Caldwell - 11/19/98 17:21:14
Hi. Just curious about my family history. I live in Polo, Missouri. My great grandfather, Chanc(e)y Caldwell, who married Susan (Floyd). They were born in the late 1890's I think. As far as I know, they always lived in Missouri. In Ray County and Caldwe l County. I, myself live in Caldwell county. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about any of my ancestors. Also, my grandfather was Leslie Caldwell, and my grandmother, Lena (Bratcher) Caldwell. Also, my father is Charles Franklin Caldwell.

Hello Caldwell family members! Myself and Fiance Laura Lynn Caldwell, have just traced her lineage back to a Samuel Caldwell (Rev. Soldier) born 1759 Orange County, NC. Samuel married Elizabeth Gullick and we have great information on many of their descen ants. We would like to find Samuel Caldwell's parents. It must have been a David or Andrew as they are the only two names on Tax list back in 1759 - 1760 in North Carolina. We are young and plan to collect data on this family for many years. Samuel and Elizabeths childrens names were Pinkney Coatsworth, Green Washington, William DeWitt, Samuel Lee, Charlotte McKee, Marshall Lawson, Rufus Frankland, Jay Hamilton, Cyrus Solon Marque Lafayette. Some were Doctors, Lawyers and Congressman and some were good ole' farmes. Best Wishes, Jason & Laura
Robert James Seeley - 11/13/98 18:38:20
I'm glad to find a clearing house for the Caldwells, my wife's surname. I have gathered data about Caldwell's in the Nashville area about 1800. I surmise they came from Mecklenburg Co, NC, so I've also been gathering information about Caldwells there. can't sort out the generations or family groups, due to missing census records for Tennessee, scattered probate records, and husband-name-only on grantor records in Nashville around 1800. Anyone else researching Caldwells in Nashville area around 1800?
Verna Caldwell Martin - 11/11/98 03:29:23
I love your web site! As I am just beggining to research my family history, I enjoy reading about the origin of the Caldwell name. I had been told that Caldwell was English, but somehow I knew that I had to be of Scots descent! If you have any info on my family line I would be most appreciative. My father was Clifton, with 4 brothers.....John, James, Denny, Ishmeal.... My grandparents were Effie and Maggie(Collett) from Sayersville, KY. Ggrandparents were Jay and Nancy(?)... Since most of my family are gone research is getting off to a slow start. Any help would be appreciated. thanks Verna
Hollis Davison - 11/08/98 23:20:38
Nice web page work! I am searching for connections to John and Martha GADDIS CALDWELL of Orange Co, NC late 1700s to very early 1800s.
Anne Sanders - 11/03/98 01:23:36
Interesting information! I'm still looking for my Caldwell link to everyone else's! I can trace back to James Caldwell, born 1784 in County Tyrone (?) Ireland, died 1859 in Mercer County, PA. James had brother John, also born in Ireland, and also died n Mercer County. There are a couple of us looking into this line; one believes that James' parents were Alexander and Rebecca. Most of our information comes from Mercer County's Caldwell Cemetery, as well as Mercer census and county history information. James was married to Pheobe Havens; John married a woman named Mary. I don't know how these Caldwells end up in US/ Mercer County; would love to hear from someone who may know.

Henry Pitts - 10/31/98 03:41:48
My Caldwells are in the Laurens S.C. area. My Grandmother was Mollie Caldwell,1875-1943. Her father was John Patrick Caldwell, Jan 26 1844-Oct 29 1937. He was with Company 'C' of the 14th S.C. Infantry in the Civil War and was wounded at the battle of Mal ern Hill. His parents were William Thomas Caldwell, Nov 22 1809-Jul 28 1876 and Mary B. Chandler. I'd like to get more information going further back and also I'd like to find the relation to John Caldwell Calhoun. Thanx Henry

I am doing my senior project on genealogy. Your site was helpful and informative. If you update it at all, or if you could possibly help me out with this project I would apprediate it if you could email me. Thank You.
Larry E. Caldwell - 10/26/98 22:18:07
Anyone have any leads to Caldwell's from central Indiana. Carl Jesse Caldwell (grandfather) born around 1897, Crawfordsville,IN. Family claims we're Scot/Irish, but there's no record to validate that.
John D. Caldwell - 10/24/98 18:48:37
My mother was a SC Caldwell who married a MS Caldwell. Families are not related in America. Mothers people arrived in Charleston, SC from County Antrium, Ireland in 1788. They moved to Fairfield and Chester Counties of SC. Do not know when fathers family arrived or where they came from. The old Caldwell home place in Bay Saint Louis, MS was built in 1755.
Amy Steele - 10/19/98 20:01:48
I am over-whelmed by all the information. My great-grandmother was a Jane (Jeanie) Caldwell from Kilmarnock, Scotland b. Nov. 10, 1868. Her father was John and her mother was Agnes Dunn. As I find more information, I will definitely return to your sit to try and establish a connection.
Laurie (Caldwell) Headley - 10/19/98 01:31:14
I, too, am part of this rather large family. My Gr Uncle had completed our genealogy back in 1967 and I am the recipient of his research. The book is typed on a manual typwriter and about 35 pages long. We go back to the John Caldwell mentione born in Scotland and d. 1750, then his 2nd son Thomas m. Betsy Harris,Thomas' 1st son William m. Nancy Robards, William's 1st son George Lewis Caldwell m. 2nd wife Eliza McDowell, George's 2nd son George McDowell Caldwell m., well you get the idea. I hav some tidbits I may be able to share, but you seem to have done a great job. If you need anything that I may have like family stories related to him just email me. Thanks for a lovely couple of hours and invaluable additions to my own genealogy. Especiall , the origin of the Caldwell name. We had some gaps that you helped fill in. My Gr Uncle has also down the Robards, Wiggintons, McDowells, Chrisman. Laurie

I truly enjoyed reading about the Caldwell history. My mother's is a Caldwell. About six years ago we visited Caldwell Castle in Ireland. I do have pictures of the Castle. I would be more than happy to scan the pictures and e-mail them to your site. t is so incredibly beautiful. I felt at home and at peace with my surroundings. No where else in the world have I felt the serenity that I felt there. Thanks so much for enlightening myself and my immediate family on the Caldwell history. I would enjoy hearing from others. Sincerely.
Ken Caldwell - 09/10/98 01:34:21
First time at your site, very interesting. I'm researching David Blair Caldwell, my great grandfather, allegedly born Nov 16, 1830, "near Pittsburgh, PA". Have hit dear ends in attempting to confirm this and his line. Any leads would be appreciated.
Linda Raine - 09/07/98 18:20:30
I am doing a very preliminary geneological check of my maiden name, Caldwell. It was prompted by a vacation we plan to take to England next summer and I thought I would try and trace some of my ancestry, which my father thought to be Welsh. However, it ay appear that we actaully originate in Scotland per the information on your home page. I have not yet fully viewed your webpage, but am enjoying it tremendously.

Wow, what a collection! I am searching for information on James E. Caldwell; possibly deceased or of age in 80's-90's; last known residence in Ohio. Early military history, possibly Army; possible residence in St. Simons Island, GA in 1940's-50's, where he was married to Virginia. Is my paternal grandfather whom my father, Richard Alford Caldwell, said left one day when he was about 4 years old and never returned. Possible indicators he tried to make contact with my father during childhood but was kept away. I would like to know information on him, particularly if there are/were other children besides my father. I know there's a lot out there, am just starting search. Appreciate if anyone has information. Thanks.
Agnes Ann Caldwell (Brown) - 08/15/98 07:48:37
I was always under the impression that Caldwell was an Irish Name. My grandmother said that it came form Patty of Cold Well. I was especially taken with the story of Agnes Caldwell,< as you can guess my name being Agnes> As I have it this is my Caldwell Line......... My father was Herbert William Caldwell Born 1 Sept 1891 Cleveland,(Cuahoga co.) Ohio Died 31 Jan. 1954 New Canton, Ill. His father was Herbert William Caldwell Born 13 April 1866 Titusville Pa. Died 12 Jan. 1946 Cleveland Hights, Ohio his wife was Agnes Francis McCormack they were married 18 Oct. 1888 His parents were William Caldwell And Abigail J. Monkiterick Most of this I have gleaned form death records etc. Does any of this ring any bells??? If so please E-mail me. Thanks Agnes
Jane Sutton - 08/13/98 21:36:30
Wonderful information. I'm just starting to research the Caldwell family but have already found some good leads (right geographical area). Will be contacting people soon.
Richard Pender - 08/08/98 04:03:13
My grandfather, Sidney John Caldwell, was born in New South Wales. He was the son of John Caldwell and Emily Farey who may have come as "assisted Irish Immigrants" during the potatoe famine. I'm glad to see there is so much interest in the Caldwell name

In addition to the last info, My grandfather Coleman Collis Caldwell was the son of Hezekiah Caldwell and his second wife. He had a half-brother named Bud. Coleman later moved to Marshall, NC and married Pearl Anders. They had 7 children, My father, Ro ert E. Caldwell being the middle child. If anyone knows anything about these Caldwells, send all the info you have.
Melanie Caldwell - 07/27/98 19:15:23
I'm still trying to find out some info on my grandfather, Coleman Collis Caldwell. We believe he was born in Durham or the sourrounding area of NC in 1906.
Charles Potts - 07/22/98 04:59:14
Following below is a bit of my family history as it pertains to the Caldwells. It would appear that General Robert Caldwell, my 14th generation back Grandfather, and John Caldwell of Virginia were of the same generation. I was quite pleased by the lengthy story on the origination of the name and will write to Michael Caldwell or call him tomorrow to get a copy for my archive. From Elizabeth Caldwell, 5th generation of Caldwells discussed below, up to my Great Grandmother, Cora Florence Lewis Jones, the lin age is matrilineal and so the surname changes frequently. My information comes undoubtedly from sources within the LDS church. Cora Florence Lewis married the oldest son of Captain Dan Jones' third wife Mary Matilde Latrielle, or Robert Latrielle Jones. T eir daughter Ethyl, my paternal grandmother and her husband and my name sake, Charles Potts, lived for many years on the spring that was the soruce for the water supply for the city of Mackay, Idaho, Cold Well indeed. I'm sure I'll be spending more timeon your site as I intend to fill inthe blanks in my family history. Sincerely, Charles Potts I'm trying to find information on distant ancestors. All named Caldwell. General Robert Caldwell [British Army] arrived in RI in 1653 from Warwickshire. He married in 1660, Margaret White of Boston. Their son, General Robert A. Caldwell Jr, married a woma named Ann Downing. Together they had a son born 1702 named Robert A. Caldwell III, not a general. Robert the III married Martha Winsor in 1728. Their son, General William Caldwell, was born 10-05-1736. He married a woman named Margarett ?, and she bore a daughter in 1769, Elizabeth Caldwell. I am most concerned about the five generations of Caldwells. If I can find them I can find the others. General Robert Caldwell Jr. may have lived in Bristol & Gloucester. Thank you very much.
