I descend from Ransom Calkins from Syracuse, New York. His brother was Jesse Weldon Calkins. Samuel Calkins IV, and Ruth Weldon Calkins were their parents. I have much information about Ransom’s son, Royal Decatur Calkins starting from when Ransom took his family to the Kansas Territory. Royal fought in the Civil War and later became friends and associates with Buffalo Bill. Family papers say Ransom worked on the Underground Railroad. I am thrilled to see this organization and will look into it. Nancy Johnson Cedillo

My Grandmother was Elizabeth Calkins Weaver. Her father, my Great Grandfather was Nathaniel Lee Calkins. has traced my family tree to Hugh Calkins as my 9th Great Grandfather. This is so fascinating, I only wish I had taken more of an interest when I was younger and more relatives were alive. My family is mostly from Western New York.

I'm a descendant of Hugh through Henry Caulkins (1800's in Ohio). My Dad was a Caulkins born in Northwest Ohio and moved to Michigan as an adult. My brother Dale has researched our lineage back to Hugh and is still looking for one more piece of proof of the Mayflower connection in our line. My brother Duane is moving to the Hartford, CT area in less than a month - so will be living close to Hugh's house. And we're trying to schedule a sibling reunion in CT/MA in 2022 to check out more details of our Hugh connection. Super cool to find this association + website!

about 3 + years ago i downloaded a copy of The Calkins Family In America by Kenneth W. Calkins. I followed up with an email, and surprisingly, he answered. He sent me some other info showing how I was related to the Calkins family and Mayflower in 2 other ways. His book ends with the 10th generation. Sarah Henrietta Calkins and Laban Jonathan Hopkins are my great grandparents on my dad's mom's line. Grandma was Ella Josephine Hopkins "josie" Adams married to George Dewey Adams. Then my dad Leroy Adams, and me.It was exciting to see my research proven by this book. Sarah's dad was Albert James Calkins , s/o james calkins, s/o james calkins, s/o james prentiss calkins who fought in the american revolutionary war.

Hello from fort Wayne . I'm one of the 7 sons of Russell Calkins of Wayland . The son of clifford Calkins of Hopkins who was the son of Abe. Im kind of a history nut and enjoyed finding out some of the reality. I grew up thinking we were Welsh now I know we are English. I enjoy the walking my 4 or 5 generation of relatives graves in the small rurel cemetery near Hopkins Michigan. Maybe fate brought me the group . I researched if we had any relatives who were Patriots in the american revolution. I seems thats a very big yes. Then I find the calkins assocation and a link to Keith calkins who taught my nephew at Andrews university. Then I found out about the reunion in September. It just so happens we are vacationing in Boston n ptown just before. Then after talking with Melissa I found out a calkins owns the bayberry Inn in ptown. We met her last year. So with these wild stars lining up we will be attending a few days of the reunion

Hello, my father was Thomas Richard Calkins from Cleveland, Ohio. He had done our family's ancestry back to the 1600's, I believe. It's so exciting to find out that our ancestory is still being researched! Thank you so much for inviting me to follow along. I'm hopeful that I will be able to attend the upcoming family reunion.

Great site with great information. I had already tracked myself back to Hugh and Ann (my 8th Great Grandfather) so learning more about him and the association is fun. Lots of interesting information about the Calkins line. Thanks

I have seen his house in Varysburg. The bottom was where he worked on horses as a farrier. The 2nd floor was for the family. There is still a barn on the property. Many of the Calkins family are buried in Varysburg Cemetery, in 2 different sections. One of grandma's sisters spent many years searching the family history and it is on record in Albany, NY. A lot of info available on the internet. So glad my grandmother had this little black book.

My husband’s family were all born in upstate New York. Harold Gilbert Calkins and Oscar Eugene Calkins were about as far back ad we could find. My husband’s father, who was born in 1904 always said that his great-grandfather was from Ireland, and when he came over to the United States that he married a Seneca Indian woman. Any additional info would be greatly appreciated.
