You are a buddy and a pal. I'll add the following FYI:
ANN ELIZABETH (HUFF) CALDWELL daughter of Cornelius and Elizabeth Haff (note the apparent name change) and wife of Robert Caldwell, born 1764 in N.J., died in Hancock County Ind. on 20 May 1852 at 88 y 4 mo 2 da, thus born 18 Jan 1764. Cornelius Haff’s Hampshire County (W) Va. will and estate named daughter Elizabeth and Robert Caldwell. She was also mentioned as widow in a quit-claim dated 24 Jul 1822 (Campbell County KY), and signed maternal consent for daughter Mary's marriage in 1825 to Merideth Gosney. In 1850 Elizabeth was living in Green Township, Hancock County Ind. with Mary and grand-son-in-law Merideth Gosney. She was 87 then and listed in the census as being from N.J. Buried in Hancock County where her headstone reads "Elizabeth Caldwell w/o Robert." Her maiden surname was given in grandson D. F. Caldwell's biography, Biographical and Historical Record of Jay and Blackford Counties, Indiana, 1887, and corroborated by her father's estate papers named above.
