    History of Washington County, Ohio 1788-1881 by H. Z. Williams
    Pg. 650
    " In 1815 Alexander Calder settled near the present line between Warren and Dunham townships. He was born in 1789 in New York, wher he married Phoebe Mabey, about 1810. She was born in New York in 1780 and died in 1820, having had six children, of whom but one survives--Margaret (Swan) of Meigs county. He was married in 1825 to Cecy Casey, who was born at Fairfax, Virginia, in 1800. The fruit of this union was six children, five of whom survive, viz; William, David B., Philip C., and Wallace, who reside in Dunham township, and Van Buren who lives in Belpre township. Alexander died in 1848. During the War of 1812, Mr. Calder was living in Canada. He was imprisoned as a citizen of the United States, but soon recieved his pardon. After coming to Washington county, he opened a large stone quarry on his farm and engaged in the manufacture of grindstones."
    Pg. 651 Stone Quarries and Grindstone Manufactures
    "A. Calder opened a fine quarry in the river ledges, and as navigation improved, the industry grew in extent and importance. Along the Little Hocking the industry was carried on most extensively in 1870-71, by the Ohio River Stone company, William P. Cutter, (should be Calder), Malcolm Blue and O['Connor & Blue. O'Connor & Blue at present operate the larges quarries in this section of the stone district.
    "A. B. and W. Calder have been operating extensive quarries along the river since 1870. The piers for the railroad bridge at Parkersburgh, and the stone for the ornametal work of the Episcopial church at Parkersburgh came from their quarry. An establishment was erected near the river, by Mr. O'Connor for sawing out building stone, but did not prove as successful as was anticipated."



    In 1810 Alexander was living in Delhi, Delaware County, New York....
    Humm...........I wonder if his wife, Phoebe Mabey has connections to Daniel & Rachel (Booth) MABIE, also of Delhi, Delaware County, New York. They had a daughter, Rachel, b. 1786. Rachel married Joel Parke. Joel's brother & sister, Elisha Parke and Hannah Parke Deming also came to Washington County, Ohio.

    A letter written by Sally Parker Cutler of Constitution, to her husband Ephraim Cutler, dated January 1, 1825. In the letter, Sally states:
    "Nothing new has transpired since I wrote last, except -- Mr. Calder was married day before yesterday to Mrs. Mankin's Sister reputed to be a steady, Decent, woman about 28 years old[.] He gave an invitation to the whole neibourhood, yesterday, to collect at his house, and make merry with him, not excepting, your Wife, Son, and Daughter -- I hear this morning 40 or 50 collected, and they had a high time, and I presume a very ridiculous one."

    • Note:
      Dawes Memorial Library, Marietta College--- a letter written by Sally Parker Cutler of Constitution, to her husband Ephraim Cutler, dated January 1, 1825. In the letter, Sally states:
      "Nothing new has transpired since I wrote last, except -- Mr. Calder was married day before yesterday to Mrs. Mankin's Sister reputed to be a steady, Decent, woman about 28 years old[.] He gave an invitation to the whole neibourhood, yesterday, to collect at his house, and make merry with him, not excepting, your Wife, Son, and Daughter -- I hear this morning 40 or 50 collected, and they had a high time, and I presume a very ridiculous one."
      NOTE: The Mr. Calder she is speaking about is Alexander, and his marriage to Ceasy (Cece) Casey. Other letters found at the Dawes Memorial Library indicate that that the Cutler family kept all their papers and had a tendency to gossip about the neighbors! (eg. letters written to various people) I am assuming that Sally (w/o Ephraim Cutler) was a little upset with Alexander Calder because she wasn't invited.
