In Reply to: Re: JAMES CALK , 1700'S, PRINCE WM CO, VA by mildredgoodman of 166

Hi Cousin,
I have a xerox copy what is called a "day book" that was kept by people in those days that gives the name of James Sr. wife as being Eleanor "Ellen" and the name and date of birth of his sons James and William.
Through my research (and I'm going from memory now) both James Jr. and William went to the Carolian's (I don't believe that it had been divided into North and South yet but could be wrong). As I recall, James Jr. liked the area and remained and William didn't like the area and returned to VA. If memory serves me right, the area they first went to in the Carolian's was an area in N. Carolian where I found the three other names of Conrad, Henry and Charles CALK on the 1790 census. I'm saying census but it could have been some other document. At any rate, these three were in the same area that James and William went to when they left VA. There were NO other CALK families anywhere in the area and as James & William ended up in the same place, I assume they were older brothers as there were no other CALK families for them to be from. As I recall, these three men and their descendants ended up using a different spelling than CALK shortly after that time. Asa I have their births figured out they were all born between 1733 - 1737.
I mentioned all this in my earlier issues of the CALK Newsletter.
