Rita Seiter is a Burleson researcher, and she has told me that through her research, she had heard that our Caldwell line were also related to Red Foley and also some of the earlier Western musicians.

Rita also states that new info. may be that his name was Paskell Caldwell and his wife being Cleo Barbaree. The marriage to a Cleo has not been proven and may be incorrect or a second marriage. It is believed that Paschall had only married once. Also earlier info. I had gotten from someone is that he was a blind Cherokee Indian. But he could not be a farmer if he was blind. So I believe he was not blind.

"Hi Tracy,


Thank you for clarifying which Edney (Edna) Caldwell you were from. Recently, I found out from another cousin that Paschal Caldwell was on the 1870 Limestone County Mortality Schedule Census as dying from FEVER (no type of fever was specified, however, most of the Caldwells, Shipps, Turners, Thomas's lived fairly near the Navasota River and many folks back then died of yellow fever resulting from mosquitos.) I understand that a Mortality Schedule Census covers the period of one year prior to taking census. This began on June 1, 1870, then the Mortality Schedule Census covered the period of June 1, 1869 to June 1, 1870. So Paschal died within that year. It seems she also saw on the same schedule that Enda Caldwell Foley also died of fever. I will check my recent e-mails to make sure of this and let your know."
