About James Calhoun

JAMES3 CALHOUN (JAMES2, PATRICK1) was born 1716 in Donegal, Ireland, and died February 01, 1760 in Indian Massacre at Long Cane Creek. He married SUSANNAH LONG, daughter of JOSEPH LONG and ANN.


Notes for SUSANNAH LONG:

In her family book, Mary Jane Constock states that the James Calhoun, who was massacred on Feb . 1, 1760 was married in Cumberland Co. (now Union) Pa. to Susanna Long, sometimes referred t o as Nancy and as Ann. She was daughter of Joseph and Ann Long and a sister of Agnes Long who married William Calhoun (brother of this James Calhoun). No descendants of couplenor proof of marriage given.


Child of JAMES CALHOUN and SUSANNAH LONG is:

i. MARTHA4 CALHOUN, m. JAMES WILSON.

Notes for MARTHA CALHOUN:

Elizabeth Willson's father, James Willson, was killed at the Battle of Cowpens on January 17 , 1781. (Pension records of Martha Calhoun Willson Anderson). Martha later married a William Anderson, and evidently her children were also known by the step-father's name of Anderson, because there was confusion among the descendants for many years whether the name was "Willson" o r "Anderson." For that reason the court records regarding this are included in this work (Some Descendants of David McWhorter...).The records show that this second marriage proved to b e not legal because Mr. Anderson still had a living wife whom he had not divorced. Martha Calhoun and James Willson had four children, three of them being Elizabeth, Mary W. Langston and James Willson. The petititon of Mrs. Mary W. Langston for a pension states the death date of he r mother, Martha Willson Anderson, as being on the 31 day of January, 1840.

The 1800 U.Sl Census of Pendleton District, S.C. lists a Martha Anderson, with 2 white males ( 10-16), one white female (under 10) and one white female (45-0ver).

Mrs. Shelley McWhorter Wright joined the DAR on the services of James Willson in the Revolutionary War. Her National DAR number is 395254.
