Biographical/Historical Note

James E. Caldwell (1833-1920) was born in Saline County, Arkansas. He joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, South in 1851 and was licensed to preach in 1852. His ministerial labors were mostly in south central Arkansas centering on Tulip in Dallas County, where he settled soon after the Civil War. In 1869 he retired from the ministry due to increasing deafness. Caldwell married Martha S. Grubbs in 1854, and they had nine children. During his later years, he recorded a detailed discussion of the Methodist Church and many candid descriptions of his fellow clergymen
