According to "The Carr Book", pg. 50:
As a young man Caleb is thought to have made a trip to England. Upon his return he settled in New Jersey where he was soon married and in business. He is described as a prosperous farmer with the trade of Carriage maker on the side. Caleb and Sarah were both earnest Quakers and possessed of considerable ability and education.

Caleb was a Quaker and was among the founding elders of the Mount Holly Friends Meeting House, which was ready for use on 9 Oct 1776. He was an "overseer" of the new house and was listed as an elder in the book "The History of Mount Holly, NJ", pg. 68.

Caleb was a great grandson of Caleb Carr (1624-1695), who was a famous Governor of the Colony of Rhode Island.

Caleb and Sarah are buried among many other Ridgeway family members in the Friends Burial Ground, including Sarah's parents, Thomas and Mary Ridgeway, according to "The History of Little Egg Harbor, NJ," by Leah Blackman, pg. 206. Also nearby are many Willits, which was his mother's maiden name.

Caleb is buried next to his granddaughter Rebecca Winner. Caleb's daughter Hannah married Samuel Winner. Hannah died in child birth 9 Aug 1778 and their daughter Rebecca died the following day.

Father: Job Carr (1689-aft.1719)
Job was buried on the family farm in Jericho, Nassau County, NY. The burial was intact in the 1850s, but by the 1890s it was no longer there. The owner of the farm in 1890s remembered seeing the burial as a child, a rough stone in the plat, on which were cut the letters, "J.C.", and that, he was always told, was the grave of Job Carr.

Mother: Hannah Willets (1686-1727)
Hannah is believed to have been buried with her husband on the family farm.
