Here is how I characterized the Cresap connection the last time I spoke of it, and the first time providing the notes of John Conklin, now this Anita Calvert Bourgoise, and ALvah Headlee.
in the dark recesses of my mind is a book of history somewhere that documents the calverts of my line who came out of Maryland and west...first establishing a fur trading post in the upper reaches of the Potomac River and somehow associating John Calvert with Thomas Cresap...This John had a brother William and perhaps a brother George... Story is, that these Calverts came from the same area of Maryland as the Lemasters who populated what became West Virginia Counties(same as the Calverts) and the common story is that they were neighbors way back when and Queen Mary's County if I recall is where it must have been(logically).
In the Lemasters USA they dealt with John(s) Calvert 3 of them who ended out of VA to SC and then back to Scott Co VA before jumping into KY. The easy part was Eleazor but there were 3 john's and only one could be eliminated so which John this John Came from is in Question. Anyway, John and Eleazor show up in Scott and then jump over to Ky and they are there with other adjacent groups...BUT another monkey wrench exists because not only do the Lemasters of MD migrate south to VA to SC but also west in VA to say Tyler and Mon Co and thus down the river to guess where...KY. So you have two essential sets of migration of Lemasters into the similar area of KY though the northern branch of Western VA were more oriented to counties along the OH River... Throw into to boot anbother Eleazor who is killed by indians in the same era of 25 years and it is confusing...but he was old enough to be a different generation so we have them set from Scott County, VA. OH!
Once I posted a book on the Indian wars of Western VA and either Sherri or Donalynn had somehow a need to connect with that... This may be a key in determining why people moved as they did. But before M&D went west and as the troubles with the "Hostiles" eased off the settlers followed an older trail...the one going into the interior of Southern VA etc...was from SC, people back tracked to avoid being caught up in it, and then used it again to migrate west and into Kentucky. I had previously not been aware that this was a common migration route until looking at some old colonial maps and realizing the counties of Western VA were jumping off places and the ease of movement from that locale to what had become a somewhat sedentariy Western NC and SC... off toward then the coast...
2. The author of these notes is John Conklin I think and this is probably a letter and it was stamped with the Cornerstone Gen society stamp but I can't read the date on the copy.
This was part of the Dorothy T Hennen collection at the old greene Co Courthouse(A two story log structure which is
preserved as a museum) now Cornerstone Genealogy(Staffed by all Volunteers).
The author, apparently writing to Dorothy Hennen states:

end of page 1.
( note by David Bell - the author shows the marriage of Matilda Calvert b 9 mar 1811 to John Delaney (This is the 2nd of two direct Delaney marriages in my family line, the other being lista Zella who m William Cleveland "Teed" Dulaney, there are more on page 2-I do have a pretty complete database on the Dulaney Family). and that Malissa is the one who married Josiah Conklin, The authors father and mother ).
Page 2 (untitled)
The second page shows the following: to the left of where line one ends is a parenthetical (Son of Lord Cecil Calvert)
This is what I think Anita Bourgoise gave herself...John Conklin was above and it is ANita Bourgoise doing this...

Page 3-5 follows where the author writes the following lineage.
Page 3 Title) The Calvert Family Lineage:
George Calvert and his brother John Calvert, Brothers of Lord Baltimore. The Younger came from ENgland to the Colony of Maryland in 1691. George Calvert, Born in Sussex in 1661 was one of the three Surveyors that surveyed the south plat of Baltimore in 1714 and was a local guardian of the law from 1701 to 1708.
He had a wife, three sons - William, George, John - 2 daughters Cecilia and Mary.
William Calvert, brother of George Calvert, came from their home in Sussex England to Baltimore County, Maryland in 1705
and wasthe agent of the Lond Fur Company in Baltimore 1706 to 1719.
(now this indicates these brothers came out of Sussex and would tie William, George, and John as sons of a John Calvert)>
John Calvert, son of George Calvert, born in England in 1686, came to Baltimore with his parents in 1691. He was an inkeeper in upper Baltimore town 1721 to 1730. In 1722 he,
with Dr. Samuel Eckerlin, made their way to the middle of the Potomac River regions and purchased some prime furs and it was through this first trading with the Connechnee Indians that the Lond Fur Co set up their first Fur post and trading house at "Long MEadows" in Frederick Co., Md. in 1726 (end of page 3)
(Beginning of page 4)
and in 1728 placed Col. THos. Cresap there as their agent in 1728 who continued there until 1745.
John Calvert married Margaret Robinson in 1717, and from records they had three sons, Resin, William & Cecil and 2 daughters, Elizabeth & Mary. Elizabeth Calvert was married to one Samuel Lewis and settled in Philadelphia and later in Chester Co.
Resin Calvert, son of John Calvert, Born in 1722 married Harriett Bryan and settled in Frederick Md. in 1750 and had 3 sons William B.1753-July 22
Thomas B. 1755
George B. b1761
1 daughter ? B1767-M.John Founer in
william, Son of Resin grew up in Frederick, Frederick MD.
County,Md.-located in Bedfor, PA.1775. He was a Revolutionary war soldier in 1777&1778- again in 1781.
In 1777 he married ? Wheaton(given name not found).
Thomas Calvert b 1784 came to Greene Twp. Greene Co PA in 1808. was a millwrite by trade. He assisted John Carter to repair the Col. John Minor Mill at Mapletown in 1811. In 1813--
Page 5 has the following information, no signiture.
this letter was continued on another page and I don't have a copy of that page. it stated he built a mill which was 1 of 51 mills in Greene Co Pa at the time of the 1820 Census.
this short paragraph is pretty much as how I transcribed the small bit on the last page of this letter or notes of the author. No signiture....
So this story would go along with the Lineage showing from Isaac on page 2 above.
Stapled to the pages above are Census data Titled
Calvert Family and on the right it says From the Collection of Dorothy T. Hennen
It lists, apparently following the Authors lineage
