RE: martha calhoun, b 1767, warrior run
Martha Calhoun born 11/8/1766 married John Caldwell (my 5th great uncle.) I looked at the original picture and I believe it says Columbia County. They lived near Exchange, which is in Montour County now. I live really close to the Warrior Run Church, but the weather isn't the greatest to check out the stone, or I would run over!

I also copied the paragraph below in case you did not have it. Hope this helps

JOHN C. CALDWELL (deceased). The Caldwell ancestors originally immigrated from the North of Ireland immediately after the close of the Revolution, arriving here about the year 1785. There were four brothers, all married, and who left a large circle of descendants. John, the father of John C. Caldwell, was married to Martha Calhoun about the year 1787, and settled on the farm near Exchange, by which marriage he had eight children consisting of five sons and three daughters. John C. Caldwell, the youngest of the family, married in 1852, Miss Elizabeth J. Pollok, and left one daughter, Miss Martha J., who resides on the homestead. Mr. Caldwell followed farming until he became too feeble. The farm upon which John C. was born remained in the hands of the heirs until 1866, when he moved to a farm adjoining, where he resided at the time of his death, and is still retained by his daughter, Martha J. John C. Caldwell died September 2, 1883, and Mrs. Caldwell died January 24, 1885. Both are interred in the Derry Church graveyard. Mrs. Caldwell was a member of Derry church. Mrs. John C. Caldwell was a daughter of James and Elizabeth Pollock, who came of the early Scotch-Irish element, who established a character of purity and uprightness, and the influence of which has its hold upon the descendants.

RE: Samuel Pollock info
Thank you for your information.
Are you sure this is the same Samuel Pollock? There was another Samuel Pollock around the same time and same area; also fighting in the Revolution. From what I know my Samuel Pollock came to Lancaster Co, Pa. after 1774, then went to Washington Co, Pa. I have no other documentation stating otherwise. If you have any documentation please let me know. Thanks

RE: Church Hill Cemetery missing person
Church Hill cemetery was formerly East Kishacoqullas Church cemetery. It's a very old cemetery and there are missing stones. I photographed that entire cemetery last summer (2011) so I doubt there was a marker. I had a helper who went ahead of me and made sure I didn't miss anything on the backs of markers, etc. I'm sorry but my "spidey-sense" won't be able to help with this one! If there are people who were listed and I didn't have them posted, then, by all means, put up their memorials! I got the names from the 1976 publications (and since I've begun photographing they even missed quite a few!) That doesn't include any recent burials from 76 to present. The "readers" missed OLD markers, had names misspelled, dates misread, etc. But they did it all by hand - writing them down and typing them up on a real typewriter! Glad we hve digital and computers now!
