My Caldwell Family

In July 2009 there was a Caldwell Family Exhibit in the museum in Springer, New Mexico (the exhibit continued for the month of August).

We all have family stories and when we Caldwells met on Sunday, July 26th, there were so many stories told and retold (embellished or not!).  One of my uncles told me stories about my grandfather, Berlin Caldwell, I had never heard before – about his days as Sheriff in Colfax County.  We also remembered  members of our Caldwell family who are no longer with us.  However, strange as it seems – we felt their presence – as we reminisced and remembered.
