Charles Amos Calhoun, about 7-15-1845, SC
Posted by: randy calhoun (ID *****9419) Date: July 31, 2011 at 08:03:46

I am looking for information about the PARENTS of Charles Amos Calhoun (AMOS).

AMOS as born on or about 7-15-1845 somewhere in south carolina .....

Amos BIRTH MOTHER (name unknown) died there in south carolina when amos was YOUNG .. Amos father (name unknown) moved to indiana while amos was still not very old .... and his father MARRIED again (but i dont know if this occurred in sc or in indiana) ..... amos had ONE brother (CLOSE in age - but i dont know who was older or younger) and TWO OLDER SISTERS (i do not know for sure if amos brother was from amos birth mother or his step mother) ....

Amos lost track of his brother along the way ... but they had a SHIPPING (freight wagons) business from LOUISIANA to NEW MEXICO .... before they got split up ....

Amos two sisters both died without marrying or having children.

Amos father died in indiana NOT LONG after they moved there and the two young boys were taken in by a family moving to texas .... the two older daughters stayed with the step mother and eventually relocated to illinois .... so it seems the step-mother died in illinios.

It seems since the two boys were young when they were taken in (by apprearent strangers moving to texas who did not know their family history) - they never got much if any family history to pass on to their children .... so i dont have that much to go on ..... any clues would be appreciated ...
