I am a descendant of John Caldwell and Margaret Barney through their son, Hugh. According to confirmed sources, John and Margaret had 3 children that lived beyond infancy: Hugh, Lovina and Margaret.
It seems many less than intelligent ancestry.com members claim that Cynthia Jane Caldwell (1832-1917), who married Joseph A. Kettler/Ketlar was also their child. A simple investigation of the census and a review of her 1917 death certificate proves that she was a daughter of William Caldwell and Ellen Farabee.
So why do morons continue to include her as a daughter of John and Margaret Barney Caldwell?
People, please be intelligent about this hobby if you're really going to do it.
