Looking for the parents of Adam Leftrige CALFEE, b. 1851 in Mercer Co., WV. He is found in the Henry B. and Martha BAILEY familyin the 1860 Mercer Co., census.

Was Adam L. the son of Rutledge, also found in the 1860 Mercer Co., WV census?

Any help is appreciated!

Adam Leftwich (note spelling) Calfee was the son of John and Virginia Anna Miller Calfee. John Calfee, b. 1814, was a son of William (1784-1853) and Nancy Davis Calfee of Pulaski/Wythe Counties.

I have a copy of pages from the family Bible of William and Nancy, which gives their marriage date, the dates of their children (John was born 21 June 1814), the spouses and marriage dates of their children, and the death dates for William, Nancy and their daughter Jane.

It also lists -
"Record of John Calfee's Children:
William H. Calfee was born July the 11th 1847
Mary Margaret Calfee was born April the 29th 1849
Adam Leftwich Calfee was born the 18th November 1851
Thomas Poge Calfee was born the 14th November 1854."

Thanks so much, Judy. Does it say where they were born, and where they are buried?

I really appreciate you sharing this info, and the source!!

No, it doesn't give locations of deaths or burials. Probably all these people were born in Virginia because of notations in the census records. I'm pretty sure Adam was born in Pulaski Co., VA, because his parents were there in the 1850 census:

John "Calffie," age 33, farmer, b. VA (all)
Virginia A. 25
William H. 3
Mary M. 1

Thanks for the confirmation!

Where and what dates do you have for William and Nancy?

From the Calfee Bible:

Nancy Davis, b. 9 March, 1778, d. 11 August, 1845
William Calfee, b. 10 Jan, 1784, d. 16 Mar, 1853
They were married 20 August, 1804

Presumably, the location for these events was in Wythe, now Pulaski Co., VA. Nancy may have been born at "Davis' Fancy" on the Holston River property. Nancy was the daughter of Henry Davis (b. 1735, Ireland, 1804, Wythe Co., VA) and Jane/Jean Crockett (b. 24 Feb 1739, d. 1804).

Thank you Judy for posting the bible entries. You can't get a better source than that. I think, however, there may have been a typo on Nancy's birth date and possibly it should have been 1787 rather than 1778.

It's no typo

I am looking at the copy, Jerry, and it's definitely 1778. This was handwritten script and is very clear. That would make Nancy Davis 26 and William Calfee 20 years old when they married.

I would dearly love to have a copy of the pages you refer to in the Calfee Family Bible pertaining to the following:

Nancy Davis, b. 9 March 1778, d. 11 August 1845
William Calfee, b 10 January 1784, d. 16 March 1853
Married 20 August 1804

Did they have a son named James Madison Calfee? If so, can you give me his birth and death information.
