|Death: ||Apr. 3, 1884|
Caleb (c.1808 - 3 Mar 1882/3 Apr 1884) was the son of Isaiah Blizzard and Rebecca (Stansbury) Blizzard, who were married on 18 Mar 1805 by Rev. Butler in Baltimore County, Maryland.
Caleb's date of death as 3 Apr 1884 is from a Carroll County Cemetery Book, and 3 Mar 1882 came from the DAR application of Eda Worthington (Beckett) Wallis.
Caleb [1st] married Mary A. (Thomas) Blizzard (c.1811 - 7 July 1866) on 7 June 1830 in Baltimore County, Maryland. He [2nd] married Isabel (?) Blizzard (c.1814 - 16 Dec 1888) prior to the 1870 U.S. Census.
Caleb is the grandson that Caleb Stansbury, Sr., raised after Isaiah and Rebecca both died young. He is mentioned in the will of his grandfather.
Caleb Stansbury also mentioned his granddaughter, Mary (Blizzard) Mundorff (born c.1809), in his will. Mary married John Mundorff (born c.1798), and they lived in Owings Mills, Baltimore County, Maryland.
This Caleb Stansbury, Sr., (c.1760 - c.June 1846) is a different person than the Caleb Stansbury, Sr. (c.17 Dec 1754 - 17 Nov 1845) buried in Westminster Cemetery, Carroll County, Maryland. This Caleb wrote a codicil to his will on 24 Mar 1846 after the other Caleb was already dead.
The Caleb buried in Westminster Cemetery is the Caleb who was the son of John Stansbury and Anne Marie (Ensor) Stansbury, which I have proved using Maryland Land Records. However, he has the DAR plaque on his grave which actually belongs to Caleb Stansbury, Sr., the grandfather of Caleb Stansbury Blizzard and Mary (Blizzard) Mundorff.
I believe the proof used that a Caleb Stansbury served in the Revolutionary War comes from a biography of Charles H. Blizzard written in 1879 which states - "His great grandfather Caleb Stansbury was one of the first settlers in Baltimore County, Maryland. He was in the Army of the Revolution and his sons fought in the war of 1812."
However, I think that the biography should have called him Caleb H. Blizzard rather than Charles H. Blizzard, as he used the first name Caleb in the Censuses. Caleb/Charles H. Blizzard was the son of Caleb Stansbury Blizzard and Mary A. (Thomas) Blizzard.
I don't know where Caleb Stansbury, Sr., (c.1760 - c.June 1846) and his two wives, Rebecca (Cook) Stansbury and Mary (Boring) Stansbury, are buried. Rebecca was the mother of Rebecca (Stansbury) Blizzard. When Caleb wrote his will, the name of his wife was Mary. I also don't know who his parents were even after an extensive search of the Maryland Land Records. This Caleb was never married to Elizabeth (Shilling) Stansbury. She was the wife of the Caleb buried in Westminster Cemetery, and she is buried there with him.
