According to "The Farmers Advocate" atlas of Caldwell co., MO 1897 (of which I have a copy) it was so named for John Caldwell, Indian scout. If you would like more information on Caldwell co., I would be happy to try to answer your questions. This book has maps of each of the towns and lists of the people who owned land there at that time. There is another URL that I have copied things from at different times that has the history of the beginning of Caldwell. But the URL escapes me at the moment, I will try to find it.

My great-great uncle, Arnet P. Douglas(s) (1845) apparently went from KS to Caldwell County, MO after his father died in 1862. I find him listed as Arnet P.in the 1864 tax rolls of the 13th SubDistrict of Caldwell County, Rockford Twp. I also found a listing for A.P. Douglass in the Bailey Funeral Home (Polo, MO) list as having died 1/11/1910 (Prairie Ridge). The A.P. Douglas is listed with a birthdate of 1838. I don't know if these two men are the same. Would like to know what you have on Arnet P. Douglas(s), especially if he was married to Mary Ann Hunter in 1874 and came from KS. The other listing (A.P.) may not be my guy if the birthdate is correct.

His brothers, John M. (1844) and William Taylor Douglass (1852), may have gone to MO with him.

Thanks for your efforts and anything you can find.

My grandmother Todd's family - I don't know her father's name and was told that her mother's name was Laura Terry. but I know for sure that her sisters were Josephine and Ellen and her brother's name was Barney. Both she and Ellen married Caldwells (brothers) and Josephine married a Bolin. Any help tracing them would be greatly appreciated.
