John “Jack” Caldwell (1790-1876) Botetourt & Craig Co VA

Based upon a variety of sources and some conjecture, I have put together John Caldwell’s parents, wives, and children. John Caldwell is my great-great-great grandfather and I am descended through the Archibald Caldwell & Lucy McClannahan line. All of the people described below lived in greater Botetourt County VA (including Craig, Roanoke, Rockbridge, etc. counties). Please contact me if you have comments, particularly if you can help me source and document these family linkages. William Caldwell (b. 1764-1770; d. 01/23/1850) married 03/24/1789 to Priscilla “Peggy” Looney (b. 1771). Priscilla was the daughter of Absolom Looney (1729-1791) and Margaret Moore (1730-1799). The children of William and Priscilla included: John C. Caldwell (b. 11/28/1790; d. 03/12/1876) more details below; Absalom Dempsey Caldwell (b. 1800) who married Delilah Walker; and likely several other children. John (possibly referred to as “Jack”) Caldwell married about 1814 to Anne “Anny” Hively (b. ____; d. 04/04/1829). Children of John and Anne included: Andrew Caldwell (b. 05/17/1815) who married Eleanor “Ellen” Burns; Mariah Caldwell (b. 11/09/1818) who married Lewis Albert; Archibald Caldwell (b. 12/14/1821) who married Nancy Stewart then Lucy McClannahan; Rosanna Caldwell (b. about 1824); Sarah (possibly referred to as “Sally”) Caldwell (b. 10/04/1824) who may have married a Kepler; and Elizabeth Caldwell (b. about 1827). After John Caldwell’s first wife Anne died on 04/04/1829 he was married again on 12/31/1830 to Ruth “Rutha” Reynolds (b. 09/19/1803; d. 05/06/1885). The children of John and Ruth included: Martha A. Caldwell (b. 06/11/1831) who married Mr. Haislip; and Mary Clementine Caldwell (b. 02/11/1834) who married James Alexander Jones. I am also interested in the parentage / ancestors of William Caldwell, but want to complete sources and documentation on the above described generations before I track further back.
