Hi Wayne, Could you help me with a little info on William Calk, early Ky. pioneer? My ancestor Edward Williams along with Nicholas Anderson and John Harper are mentioned in Montgomery County, Kentucky land dispute case depositions along with William Calk. In 1804 Nicholas Anderson made this statement: "Himself, WILLIAM CALK, JOHN HARPER, EDWIN WILLIAMS and others in the year 1779 and he thinks in the month of June, were out making improvements." I know that William Calk came to Kentucky in 1775 shortly after Daniel Boone. Did he leave Kentucky for a short period of time and then return? Where was he between 1775 and 1779 when he showed up again in Kentucky? Where in the Carolinas exactly was William Calk? I am trying to figure out if there is any connection between William Calk and my ancestor Edward Williams, they were both from Prince William County, Va. and lived not that far apart in Montgomery County, Ky.. Edward Williams, Nicholas Anderson and John Harper show up together in Prince William until 1776 where they all signed a petition for religious freedom at the Occoquon Baptist Church in Prince William County. After 1776 I don't know where they were until 1779 when they came to Kentucky. I think they might have come with William Calk, do you know anything about this?
