Emma is on the left of the photo, 54 yrs; her Mother, Esther Trowbridge Caldwell is in the middle and in the small picture, Emma (14) is on the left and sister Ella Caldwell, (13) is on the right, taken in 1901. The man is Emma's father, Hugh Caldwell. Caldwell fought for the North in the Civil War and was wounded in a leg which he later lost. His claim to fame was standing and looking over the stone fence he and other soldiers were hiding behind and being fired upon to see how close the enemy was. He didn't get shot that time.


Emma's Trophies trophies


Emma's Tools. She used the corn knife clearing the Buckeye "Loop" Trail from Meigs County through Gallia County to Lawrence County, Ohio. The wooden mallet and hatchet are old also. The tools date back to the Brown farm, so must be older than Lucy. They would have come from her husband's tool shop and moved with them to W.Va.
