Margaret Allison Caldwell McHenry

                    Margaret Allison "Peggy" Caldwell was born in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1762.  Her father was David Caldwell. 

                    Caldwell married James McHenry, son of Daniel and Agnes McHenry and signer of the United States Constitution, in January 1784 in Baltimore, Baltimore, Maryland

                    James and Margaret became the parents of John McHenry (born March 27, 1791, in Maryland; married Julianna Elizabeth Howard; died October 1822 in Mercerburg, Franklin, Pennsylvania.  There was one grandchild:  James Howard McHenry (born October 11, 1820, in Baltimore, Baltimore, Maryland; died September 25, 1888, in Baltimore, Baltimore, Maryland).

                    I was pleased to find this information at a genealogy site with much more information.  I was saddened to not see any personal/family history included other than simple facts.
