  • Notes 
    • There are at least 2 “James M” or “James N” Calhouns, born in 1842/43 living in or around Adair and Wayne counties in Kentucky in 1850 - 1870. The first, James M Calhoun son of Andrew John (A J) and Catherine Calhoun, is initially noted in the 1850 US Federal Census for Wayne County. But this James Calhoun is also noted as still living with his parents in the 1870 census. By 1870, our James Marion Calhoun was already married to Sarah Elizabeth Turpin, and is referenced in [US-1870-1d]. Moreover, our James M Calhoun lists his birth place as Adair County, Kentucky. So I believe that our James Calhoun is the son of James T and Elizabeth Calhoun who were living in the 2nd District, Adair County in both 1850 and 1860. [4, 5, 6]
    • [Grayson,1942a] indicates that James Marion Calhoun and Sarah Elizabeth Turpin had a total of 8 living children in 1891. [2]
    • James Marion Calhoun and his family moved from Kentucky to Sherman, Grayson County, Texas sometime between the enumeration of the 1880 US Federal Census in June of that year and the birth of their 7th child, Minnie, in 1885. [7, 10]
    • At the time of the 1870 US Federal Census, two women, Martha Turpin (age 40, probably Sarah’s mother) and Mary Turpin (Age 11, probably a younger sister of Sarah), were living in the Calhoun household in Mullen, Wayne County, Kentucky. [6]
