George Caldwell, a progressive farmer of Meriwether county, is one of the pioneers of the county, and of Irish ancestry, his grandparents, James and Mary Caldwell, and also his grandfather, McAlace, being natives of Ireland. James Caldwell was a soldier of the Revolutionary war. These all settled in South Carolina, in which state their children, Robert and Jeanette(McAlace) Caldwell, were born, and also the son of thelatter pair, George Caldwell, born in 1816. The ladís home was on the farm, his school privileges being limited to attendance in the old log school house of his district. On reaching manhood in 1837, his parents moved to Georgia, and he accompanied them. He made his home on a farm, and by prudence, industry and economy has developed it into one of the valuable properties of the county, and has won a high standing in the community. His wife was Miss Eliza Connally, a daughter of Abner and Lucy (Bagley) Connally, old pioneers of the state; she was reared on a farm in Elbert county. Mr. and Mrs. Caldwell were married in 1837 and have six children: Missouri, Bethuel, Mary, William, John W. and
Rebecca. Mr. Caldwell is a Lutheran, while his wife is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church.
