I have a David Caldwell (deaf from birth or early childhood), but I have his bday as 1741 in Burnswick County, VA.
William Findley Caldwell (1704-1761)
Rebecca Parques or Parks (1707-1806)
Child of David & Sarah:
John Wesley Caldwell
I do have a note that Rebecca moved to Mill Creek, Newberry District (old 96th District), SC.
I have also discovered a wesite where another person researching the same family line has David b. about 1759-1760.http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/CALDWELL/2001-...
Excerpt from the above website:
10. David Caldwell, youngest child, born in Virginia bout 1759 or 60 was deaf from birth or early childhood and due to his handicap was not qualified for military service during the Revolutionary War. However, he seems to have been physically strong otherwise, married (wife's name unknown), reared a large family, and lived to be an old man. It occurs to me that David must have been a great source of help and comfort to his mother Rebecca during and after the traumatic days of the Revolutionary War in which her other sons John (who lost his life), William, and James served heroically.
Hope this helps. I do have other websites researching this family bookmarked, so if you need more info, just email me.
