I volunteered to track down known living male-line descendants of William Calvert (1757) md. Elizabeth Nodding so we could get more DNA samples for the Calvert DNA project. See: www.calvertgenealogy.netI have now decided to try and identify every descendant of William and Elizabeth, and post the results on the Web.
I have created a preliminary database of all descendants of William (1757), using O'Gorman as the base - adding many additional individuals (over 300) - as well as correcting errors, etc. I've combed the Internet, mailing lists, message boards, surname lists, the Ancestral File, etc. for info. I have tracked most lines of descent that stayed in Missouri up to about 1880.(using the 1880 US Census).As of 1880, there are well over 500 lines of descent, and over 130 lines of possible male descent.(Some of these male lines will close down, but for every one that closes, several others open up.)
I am now calling on ALL descendants of William (1757) whether male or female, to send me their lines of ascent back to William. If you have compiled the descendants of a particular line, then I would be interested in a Gedcom file with those descendants. The object is to identify every descendant of William and Elizabeth Nodding Calvert.
Of course, if you know of any living direct-line male descendants of William (1757), I would like to know about them ASAP.
I have about 50 census records (1880) yet to input into my database. When I am finished, I will post the preliminary "tree" on the Internet, along with any additional info that I receive by then. It will remain a work in progress.
