I was looking at some more information regarding the Calhoun family. I am not sure where my father obtained this information. It appears that he wrote down what someone else told him. Anyway, it stated that Armilla Molder may have been from Batha, North Carolina. Robert Calhoon's will was probated in Gallia County in 1820.
Here is how I am related to Robert Calhoon.
Robert Calhoon married Armilla Molder
(Note - It may have been Robert Cahoon originally. I believe Robert was the one that changed it from Cahoon to Calhoon).
One of their sons was Sampson Calhoon.
Sampson Calhoon married Eve (or Eva) Deckard.
They had a son named William K. Calhoon.
William K. Calhoon married Mary Hall.
They had a son named Thomas Calhoon.
Thomas Calhoon married Mary Callahan.
(Note: This is when the name Calhoon was changed to Calhoun. I am not sure who changed it. I believe that I was told that it was his wife, Mary, who changed it. I believe if you look at his tombstone, it says Calhoon, but if you look at her tombstone it says Calhoun.)
Anyway, they had a son named William K. Calhoun, b. 1/18/1893, d. 2/1972, buried in Vega, Ohio. He was named after his grandfather. They do not know what the "K" stands for.
William K. Calhoun married Flora Ann Thompson.
They had one son named Ronald R. Calhoun, b. 12/27/31.
Ronald R. Calhoun married E. Merlaine (Peach) Calhoun.
They had two children - Clay W. Calhoun and me, Kieron L. Calhoun.
Interesting note: There is an indication that William K. Calhoon and Mary Hall also had a daughter who married William Callahan. William Callahan is the brother of Mary Callahan, who married William K's son Thomas Calhoon.
