The county was formed in 1841 from parts of Burke County and Wilkes County. It was named for Joseph Caldwell, presiding professor (1796-1797, 1799-1804) and the first president (1804-1812, 1816-1835) of the University of North Carolina.

A series of reductions in the county’s territory followed. In 1847 parts of Caldwell County, Iredell County, and Wilkes County were combined to form Alexander County. In 1849 parts of Caldwell County, Ashe County, Wilkes County, and Yancey County were combined to form Watauga County. In 1861, parts of Caldwell County, Burke County, McDowell County, Watauga County, and Yancey County were combined to form Mitchell County. Finally, in 1911 parts of Caldwell County, Mitchell County, and Watauga County were combined to form Avery County. Source Wikipedia

FLANATIVE on “Caldwell County Cemetery MAPLE GROVE”

Can anyone provide any info, present name, location, etc of a cemetery named MAPLE GROVE CEMETERY in the early 1900′s. Unknown if Caldwell or Watuga County.




FLANATIVE on “Surname “RICH” in Caldwell County area”

I am conducting a family tree/genealogy research and find that a large number of my direct ancestors migrated to, lived, married and died in Caldwell County from the very early 1800′s and in fact many still reside in Caldwell county and general vicinity.

If anyone has any documents and/or any photographs on the surname “RICH” and/or how to possibly locate any family history on my ancestors both living and deceased in the area.

I am also intrested in locating any cemeteries and/or gravesites that ancestors were buried in.

I note there is a Rich family Cemetery in the county; however, there are no records I can find on any burials in this cemetery.

Does anyone have any history on the “RICH” family, and are there any other organizations or individuals who I might contact for assistance?

I thank you in advance for any guidance you have.

Sincerely;

Donald E. Rich
