Death: Jul. 13, 1890

Esther was the daughter of William Calfee and Nancy Davis.

Esther was living and keeping house with her father in Pulaski Co., Virginia according to the 1850 Census. By 1860, she was living with her niece Agnes Calfee Bailey, wife of Estill Bailey in the Green Valley area of Mercer County, West Virginia. She had one male and two female slaves. A lady of means, she had assets of $300 in property and $2,800 in personal property. The 1870 and 1880 Census shows that she was residing with her brother Wilson Davis Calfee and his family.

The third wife of Rev. Chester Bullard wrote of Esther in her journal: April 15th, 1847 - "I had supper, comfortable lodgings, and ought to forbear a thought derogatory to Miss Esther Calfee - manager and lady - so different in intellect and prudence as to be disagreeably conversant. She must be credited with a desire to be agreeable though she makes a failure - one more dependent on incapacity than exertion."
