Calhouns Family I would, be happy to offer assistance to any who might be interested in the Calhouns of Albert County.
Thomas Calhoun was born 1735 in
Chester County, Pennsylvania, the son of John Cohoon, an immigrant from County Donegal, Ireland about 1714.Thomas Calhoun was a licensed Indian Trader on the western frontier in 1760 with a trading post near Tuscarawas in present day Ohio. He was closely associated with Fort Pitt and the Army officers who served in that region. In 1765, Thomas went to Cumberland County, Nova Scotia (New Brunswick) to manage a large land grant along the south bank of the Petitcodiac River in what is now Albert County, New Brunswick. He married Rachael Peck, daughter of Abiel Peck there in 1768. Thomas and Rachael are the progenitors of hundreds of Calhoun descendants, some of whom still reside in Albert and Westmorland Counties. In 1772, Thomas, along with one of his brothers, one of his wife's brothers, and a couple others were drowned while loading a boat with grindstones from Grindstone Island near the mouth of the Shepody River. Thomas is buried in Riverside Cemetery, just north of Riverside-Albert within view of Grindstone Island.

I wrote a book about the Ancestors and Descandants of Thomas Calhoun in 1994 and have continued to compile information about this fascinating family. I would be happy to offer assistance to anyone researching this Calhoun family.
