I have viewed Caldwell internet postings for some time and have found that none of them have ever listed sources or data proving assertions re David Caldwell. I think that fact is a major problem in sorting out who is who in this line. You list a Nancy Carey as first wife. Have you looked at the US 1860 Census in Randolph Co. wherein a Nancy Caldwell is listed? If she is David's first wife and alive in 1860 how is it he had wives #2 and 3--as a bigamist? Another discrepancy found in these internet sites is the birth year of David as you have pointed out. I am somewhat frustrated with these undocumented assertions of kinship and disparities in data. Does anyone do original research with original documents?
