    Seeking family history of John & Mary Walden McCaw

    Jerrie Powell Newbie

      I am searching for vital statistics/history of John McCaw who died in 1819 in Riley, Vigo County, IN. I do not know his birth information or where he comes from. John married Mary Walden and together they settled in Vigo County, IN in 1818. Mary's birth date is 19 Sept 1800 in Butler Co, OH. Their son, William James McCaw, was born on 16 Apr 1819 in Vigo County, not long after John McCaw died.  He is my great, great, great Grandfather. John may have enlisted in the Navy for the War of 1812. I also believe John was some how connected to Fort Harrison in Indiana. Also according to family lore he had a brother in Virginia.
