JEAN CALDWELL ADAMS
WILLIAM CALDWELL, born 1759 in York Co., PA, came to Columbia and purchased
property off the SW corner of Columbia Parkway 9-11-1812, having come from
Abingdon, Washington Co., VA, and Russell County, VA where we believe he
intended to return.
His unmarried daughter at the thime, MARY/POLLY m. MOSES A. SCOTT in 1820 in
Columbia, but left to return to Lee County, Dryden, about 1828 after both
parents had died. We believe our WILLIAM died 8-2-1825, married to a REBECKAH
(maiden name unknown) m. in York Co., PA about 1758, and believe we go to the
Cub Creek CALDWELL Settlement descendants who also came to Columbia, JOHN
CALDWELL - married MANN-PILE/PYLE-TRABUE line, son of DAVID and MARY DUNGEON,
a son of the Cub Creek FOUNDERS, JOHN & MARGARET PHILLIPS CALDWELL, and ROBERT
m. MARY LOGAN CALDWELL, son, ROBERT, JR., who married HANNAH WILLIS, their
son, WILLIAM,, JR. who died in Columbia in 1837. ROBERT, SR. died in
Danville, KY - Mercer-Boyle Co., KY in 1806.
We believe our WILLIAM is mixed up with the other WILLIAM CALDWELL who served
as the first Clerk of the Court for the County, m. to REBECCA EDMONDS, who
went back to Obioin Co., TN, Union City after WILLIAM died. Some say that
WILLIAM was born 5-7-1793, and others say also in 1759 in Goochland Co., VA
and collected a Rev. War Pensioin. That one died 7-5-1825. So it is
understandable some have these two mixed up. Some say the parents for WILLIAM
CALDWELL, the Clerk, were THOMAS CALDWELL and SARAH BUCHANAH.
