Beth,
I looked over the file I have and I believe that I estimated Caleb's birth year and then used the bio that gave his age at death as 80, to arrive at 1860. There is a typo in the bio in the statement regarding Caleb's son Isaac's birth year. It gives that year as 1839, but then gives his son John's birth year as 1837? When comparing this with other records, I list Isaac's birth year at about 1805, and then went back 25 years to estimate Caleb's birth year as about 1780, just to give myself a date to start with.
The information about Caleb in NJ is interesting and I will take a look and see if I can find anything down that path too!
thanks,
Mike
