Born Feb. 14: Rachel Cramblett Caldwell
Happy birthday, Great-Great-Great Grandmother Rachel (Cramblett) Caldwell.
And Happy Valentine’s Day, as well.
Born today, 188 years ago, on Feb. 14, 1827 in Franklin Twp., Harrison County, Ohio.
Rachel was the daughter of John Cramblett and Margaret (Gladman) Cramblett, who came to Ohio from Anne Arundel County, Maryland. John’s father, John Crablett Sr., is notable for platting the town of Deersville in Harrison County.
Rachel met husband Robert Caldwell, a native of Virginia, in Harrison County, where they were married in March 1845 — hey, 170 years ago next month.
As much as we can make out, from census and other records, they had 12 children — and two daughters married Foutzes: Rebecca to Great-Great Grandfather Jonathan, and Mary to his brother (Third Great Uncle), John G. Foutz.
