J. H. Caldwell Bible

A later Bible, published in 1872, is in the possession of my first cousin, Linda Harper Carmicle of Plano, Texas. It was apparently the Bible of our grandparents, J. H. and Lily Dye Caldwell, and came down to Linda through her mother, Mary Frank Caldwell Harper. Linda believes the early entries were made by J. H. Caldwell because the deaths of his parents and siblings are listed and Granny's family is not listed. Later entries were made by Mary Frank and, after her death, by Linda.

(NOTE: The non-chronological order of some of the entries makes it appear that the entries were made long after the events, probably not until sometime in the 1930s for the earliest ones. None of Edwin Caldwell's three marriages are listed, and only the third of Joe Hayden's three. Note the listing of Little Hardy as Hardy Caldwell Jr. under births. Nowhere in any of the Bibles is a wedding date given for Hardy and Frances. The May 1867 date in family tree listings seems unlikely given son Robert's birth in April 1867 not impossible, just unlikely. Charles William Caldwell died July 22, 1956.)
