Kathleen and list,

Here's what I have on the children of Terah Templin Caldwell and Harriet
Smith (somewhere in my notes I have that she is the daughter of James Smith
and Mary Edelen of Prince George, MD):


1. Nancy Caldwell, born about 1820 in Washington County, Kentucky. She
married Hillsborough Bidwell, born 1817. In 1870, this family was residing
in Davies County, Kentucky. Hillsborough Bidwell died in 1902 in Owensboro,
Kentucky.

2. Mary J. Caldwell, born about 1822 in Washington County, Kentucky. She
married (1) John McBride, born about 1804 in Kentucky and died before
October 16, 1860. This family moved to Missouri and settled in Boone County
circa 1854. His will was probated in Boone County, Missouri on October 16,
1860 and provided expenses to cover moving his wife Mary J. McBride and her
three children to Marion County, Kentucky. After moving back to Marion
County, Kentucky, Mary J. McBride married (2) Francis P. Smith at her
residence on January 24, 1865. Francis P. Smith was born about 1828 in Knox
County, Kentucky and was a resident of Adair County, Kentucky at the time of
their marriage. This was a second marriage for both the bride and groom.

3. John Robert Caldwell, born 1824 in Washington County, Kentucky. Married
Cecilia “Margaret” Columbia Gough, born 1847 in Marion County, Kentucky on
May 30, 1865 in Marion County, Kentucky. This family later moved to
Missouri. He had a son named John Robert Caldwell, Jr.

4. Elizabeth Caldwell, born 1826 in Washington County, Kentucky and died
1882 in Marion County, Kentucky. She did not marry and willed the remainder
of her inheritance bequeathed to her from her uncle, Felix Smith, to her
brothers and sisters. To her brother, James, she willed her buggy.

5. James Smith Caldwell, born January 3, 1829 and died September 8, 1885 in
Marion County, Kentucky. He married Emily Jane Abell on September 30, 1859
in Marion County, Kentucky. Emily Jane Abell was born 1836 and died October
3, 1881 in Marion County, Kentucky.

6. Lucy Ann Caldwell, born 1831 in Washington County, Kentucky. She married
William Fenton, born 1839 in Lancaster, England on February 2, 1864 in
Marion County, Kentucky. William died prior to February 8, 1876 because
Lucy married Henry A. Cissell at St. Augustine’s church in Lebanon, Kentucky
on this date. Lucy died prior to July 14, 1882.

7. Matilda Caldwell, born November 25, 1833 and died September 12, 1897 in
Marion County, Kentucky. She married James Abell on May 12, 1857 in Marion
County, Kentucky. James Abell was born January 15, 1809 and died November
1, 1876 in Marion County, Kentucky. Both are buried in the Holy Name of
Mary Cemetery in Marion County, Kentucky.

8. Sarah Caldwell, born August 23, 1834 and died September 3, 1852 in Marion
County, Kentucky. She did not marry and died at a rather young age. She is
buried in the Holy Name of Mary Cemetery in Marion County, Kentucky.

9. William Caldwell, born 1836 and died January 3, 1918 in Marion County,
Kentucky. He married Nancy Bland on January 24, 1860 in Marion County,
Kentucky. Nancy Bland was born in 1838 and died in 1903 in Marion County,
Kentucky. Both he and his wife are buried in the St. Augustine Cemetery in
Lebanon, Kentucky.

Each of the children named above received a distribution of $1,454.95 from
the estate of their uncle, Felix Smith, with the exception of Sarah who was
not living at the time of his death. Lucy Ann and Elizabeth Caldwell
received an additional bequest of a $1,500 trust each.

After living a quiet life as a farmer, Terah Templin Caldwell died in Marion
County, Kentucky on December 1, 1868 and is buried in the Old Holy Name of
Mary Cemetery. He is buried next to his wife, Harriet Caldwell, who died on
December 14, 1852.

As Karen mentions in her email below, Terah Templin Caldwell was the son of
Lt. Gov. John Caldwell and Judith. The Caldwell family were devout
Presbyterians but Terah Templin Caldwell converted to Catholicism upon his
marriage to Harriet Smith. Lt. Gov. John Caldwell died November 9, 1804 in
Frankfort, Kentucky. The State of Kentucky erected a monument at his
gravesite in 1831. John and Judith Caldwell had four children:

1. Robert Caldwell, born July 1, 1783.
2. Nancy Caldwell, born 1786.
3. John Caldwell, born 1788.
4. Terah Templin Caldwell, born March 23, 1793.

19 Jul 1819: On motion of Hiram McDaniel, ordered that it be certified to
the register of the land office that Robert S. Caldwell, Terah T. Caldwell,
Nancy Ross and John Caldwell are the proper and only heirs of John Caldwell
dec’d, satisfactory proof thereof being made and that he died without any
last will and Testament. [CoCt Order Book F, Livingston County]

On August 3, 1808, Judith Caldwell, the widow of General John Caldwell,
married Alexander Johnston. The marriage ceremony officiated by Rev. Terah
Templin. The Livingston County, Kentucky 1809 tax list shows Alexander
Johnston with 200 acres entered and surveyed in his own name and 200 acres
on Livingston Creek entered in the name of John Caldwell. Poor Judith, this
must have been a very unhappy marriage since she left Alexander Johnston
prior to February 28, 1810. Alexander Johnston posted an ad that appeared
in the February 28, 1810 edition of “The Farmer’s Friend” published in
Russellville, Kentucky stating his wife Judith had left him to live with
friends and he would not be responsible for any of her debts. The 200 acres
of John Caldwell does not appear with Alexander Johnston in the 1810
Livingston County, Kentucky tax list.

Kentucky senate in 1792 and Lt. Gov. of Kentucky in 1804. Does anyone know
where he is buried? I know his wife's name was Judith. One of their children
was Terrah Templin Caldwell, born March 23, 1793 in Mercer County, Kentucky
and died December 1, 1868 in Marion County, Kentucky. If anyone has
information on the maiden name of Judith or any other children, it would be
greatly appreciated. Thanks for any help.Sandy Caldwell

monument is located in what is called Governor's Row. My husband and
children are descendents of Terrah Templin Caldwell. Information on John's
wife, Judith is very sketchy. We do know that she remarried after his death.
There were other known children and probably more that are unknown.
