DEATH: "THE GOSPEL MESSENGER", Butler, Georgia; Volumn 2, Number 12; September 1880
' My mother, Mrs. Rachel Caldwell, departed this life in Meriwhether County, Georgia on June 28, 1880 in the 78th year of her age. She was a faithful and orderly Primitive Baptist for about 55 years. She was a kind affectionate mother and wife, having been all her married life the wife of my father, Elder Creed Caldwell, who is affectionately remembered by the Primitive Baptist as a firm, faithful, and gifted minister of the gospel. She was the mother of the late Elder David Caldwell, who was called home to glory the present year. She lived to see all her children either members of the church or in hope of salvation. She expressed herself for a length of time as waiting for her change to come; and when the time of her departure came she met death willingly, preferring to depart and be with Christ. And so she fell asleep in Jesus; blessed sleep from which none ever awake to weep. In sorrow, yet in hope that I will meet her again, I remain her bereaved son, John Caldwell'.
