Bio - Caldwell Family

Dr. William Caldwell (brother of Yelverton Caldwell) was a doctor of the old school, practicing medicine, surgery, dentistry, or anything that gave relief to suffering humanity in Butler and Taylor County. He was subject to call any hour of the day or night. He traveled on horseback and filled his own prescriptions, from his saddle bags, which he always carried....while still a young physician, and War Between the States seemed inevitable, Dr. Caldwell was among the first to volunteer. He and his closest friend, a young lawyer, Col. W. L. Grice, marched together at the head of the line, the two tallest men, in the first volunteer company, to leave Butler, to fight for the "cause they knew was right." This gave a close tie of friendship between the Grice and Caldwell families, which extended through several generations. The Gray coat worn by Dr. Caldwell, as a Confederate army surgeon, and the Testament he carried in his pocket during the four years in service are now in possession of his granddaughters at Hawkinsville...When Dr. Caldwell arrived in Butler from North Ga., his family included his wife and three children, William Preston, Emma Rosalind and Charles Alfonso. The youngest son, Solon Maloy, known as Loy, was born after the family came to Butler.
