Th John Calvert, Jr and Sr. on the 1810 census are my 3rd and 4th great grandfathers. The surname was originally Calvert but went through more name changes than Carter had liver pills. (Don't know whether you remember Carter's Liver Pills. I may be royally dating myself.)

You mentioned finding a 68-yr-old Sarah L. (Colvard) Nelson on the 1850 census. She has to be related to my ancestors, but I don't have her name. Think I'll put out some feelers on her.

The girl 5-10 years old in the Thomas Caldwell home on the 1850 census would have been the right age for my gg grandmother Sarah Owens. On the 1870 Cherokee Co., NC census, Cheoah District, Sarah was listed as being 34. Averaging the age between the 1840 to 1870 censuses, Sarah was probably born in the latter part of 1833.

Information on this Thomas Caldwell branch is very scarce so far. I've found all kinds of Caldwell/Colwell marriages in the Haywood Co. records and marriages for all the siblings of Jefferson Owen -- but none for Jefferson. I'm still keeping with my original thought that Jeff and Sarah weren't married.

Thanks for all your help to date. I'll surely keep your name and address on file. Your're super to help me the way you've done! God bless you!
