What I am trying to find out is about the wives of Harper Caldwell. It appears that he had at least 2 and probably 3, but I can not track down any information on them. I was told by my grandmother, that one of them (probably Mary J) was a full Cherokee who had gotten sick and stopped in Noel along the trail-of-tears and been taken in. 

Here is what I have been able to collect so far 

Marriage to Mary Brooks: Married: 4 Jun 1882 
or Mary Elizabeth Kelley: B: 2 Feb 1858
Marriage to Mary J: Married about 1850 
Marriage to Francis: Married about 1870
