Saw your post about a Watson CALK of VA. I'm very much in this Watson CALK and his migration route out of VA. The only known family of CALK's in VA during the time you mentioned is the family of James CALK, Sr. He has two proven son's. One named James (and sometimes called James Jr.) who was born in 1729 and another sone named William who was born in 1740. This family was located in Prince William Co., VA. As far as I know, the residence was always in Prince William Co. However, I have a copy of a WILL for a John JONES of Orange Co., VA dated 31 May 1758 which states that he sold a track of land in the counties of Stafford and Prince William Co., VA to Joseph STONE and James CALK. This would indicate that James CALK had business dealings with people in Orange Co. and at least knew people in that county.
In addition to the above named son's, I suspect that there were other son's named Conrad, Henry and Charles. These men would have been born prob. between 1729 and 1740. Your Watson CALK could have been a son of any of the above named men except for William. James (Jr.) above had a son named James W. CALK. I've never been able to determine what the W. stood for. I have found records for a James W. CALK Jr. & SR. and for James CALK Sr. & Jr. Thes records prove that James CALK Sr. & Jr. and James W. CALK Sr. & Jr. are the same men.
I have very little info on Conrad, Charles and Henry. They were in NC where I found some early records (ca. 1790's) and diappeared. I suspect that they either took a different spelling such as CAULK or possible CLARK or even CORK as the CALK name has been found spelled so many times in records. It's quite possible that Charles, Henry and Conrad left no male heirs (which seems to be a common trait in the CALK name) and their line just died out.
Could you let me know how your Watson CALK migrated from VA? i might be able to connect him further down the line. Also what the names of his children were.
