Surnames: Holliday;Halliday;Caldwell. ( Colwil;Cowil;Cowill;Cauldwell )
I have been looking for information on a William Holliday B:Oct.27,1784 in Ireland. Her was married in Ireland to Sarah Caldwell. She was B:Feb. 1789 in Ireland. They came to America in 1817 with two children John William B:Oct.18,1813 and Ann B; April 5,1811. Their other children were all born later in America. They came over on the ship " Down" which landed in New York City on July 9,1817. In the records here it only says the came from Belfast on the ship Down. We don't know where in Ireland they were born. The only other information we have is that he had a brother David who was married to Nancy and came over at a later date around 1829. Would love to have any thing else any one could find we have looked for years. We even had a cousin who went there and couldn't find anything . The spelling of Sarah's name came from their family bible but could be spelled different. Two generation's later they started to spell Holliday ; Halliday. We don't know why? Maybe someone can help I've come to a dead end. Thanks Thelma
