About Our Family Research


I started researching with a family story and a curiosity for where and from whom I came. I never knew there were so many "George Washington Calverts" until I started looking for mine! "George W.", as I've come to affectionaly call him, is my great-grandfather, born in 1844 in Nicholas County, KY, son of William Baltimore Calvert and Hester Rigdon.

I traced our roots back from Missouri to Kentucky,to Virginia and to England. Today, we are spread outin the USA from one coast to the other.

"George W." was a stowaway on his brother's, William, wagon as William and his family left Kentudky for the western plains. They stopped in Miller County, MO. George W. stayed in Missouri, settling in Boone County, while his brothers, William & Spencer, moved on to Oklahoma and Texas; another brother from Kentudky, Marshall, joined him later. Marshall settled in Audrain County, MO. George W. was one of about 13 children. His mother died when he was small. He didn't like the new step-mother, so he snuck in to his brother's wagon and hid until well after dark so that they were too far down the trail to turn back and return him to his father.
