Elias A. Calvert was the second son of Spencer Calvert who was a
Revolutionary War soldier, and Nancy (Leatherwood) Calvert.
He married Eleanor Morse Sept. 25, 1815 in Caldwell Co., Ky.
Ella Foy O'Gorman's book, Descendants of Virginia Calverts lists Elias as a
brick mason and states that he built courthouses at both Princeton and Marion, Ky.
One of Elias Calvert's sons Riley Madison Calvert married Rhoda Prince the
granddaughter of William Prince the man Princeton was named for.

It is such a shame that the last resting place of someone so connected to the
early history of Caldwell County has been treated so disrespectfuly.
