Hi! I saw your posting and thought I would reply with a small piece of information. I show that Elijah Calk born ca 1771 and "unknown" wifehad seven children. The sixth child was David Calk bor 16 Apr 1816 Alabama, married Mary Honeycutt 12 Aug 1846 and died 18 Dec 1892 in Downsville, Lincoln, La.This may not be your David but you mentioned that you could not read his wife's name. I hope this helps. I'm also looking for a name for the wife of these kids. I descend from his second wife Mary Younse.
