Married on Aug 26, 1867 in Crittenden, Ky.
J. S. Caldwell and his wife, Janie A. [Mott] Caldwell, both natives of Kentucky, came to Texas in 1876 from Warrensburg, Missouri, living for a year in Grayson County before coming to Palo Pinto County. Here, they settled 10 miles northeast of Gordon and lived for 19 years. The rock foundation of the house they built is still in evidence and a depression where a cellar was built under the house still remains. At this location, one of their sons, C. M. was born, May 1, 1880.
While the family was in no Indian raids, some took place near them during their life here. J. S. Caldwell was a deacon in the Baptist Church and was commissioner of Palo Pinto County in 1880. In addition to their six children, Mr. and Mrs. Caldwell reared three orphan children.
