Excerpt from The Calkins Memorial Military Roster and Genealogy

Since the publication of the Memorial in 1903, much additional information coming to hand, I have written what follows, in order that it may be preserved. There will be found a few additions to the list of soldiers mentioned in the Memorial, together with further details as to some of them. Also, I have added, such genealogical notes as have come to hand in order that the now widely scattered Calkinses may the more easily look each other up and trace their connection in the long chain leading back to Hugh Calkin our first American ancestor. I have heard from members of the "tribe" in thirty-six states - and from some in Nova Scotia, who removed there at the time of the expulsion of the French Acadians - 1760. Subsequently many returned to the United States. Those in Nova Scotia still retain the old spelling of the name, as, indeed, do a number in our own country. In writing the Memorial Book and this Supplement, I assume that every one appreciates the fact that I have done so as a patriotic duty in behalf of the whole family, hoping that it may induce the members - numbering thousands, to take more interest in each other. The work that I have done - or may do, must end at no distant day, but some one will arise to make it more complete. Indeed, I have heard rumors now and then that certain ones of our name were engaged in writing up a complete genealogy of all the Calkins, but so far no such work has materialized in print, much to my disappointment. Such a gigantic task at my age - and more, disabilities - I realized, after much reflection, would not be advisable, but a smaller work would be practicable, interesting and useful. The indorsements received have justified my efforts and led me to write the present Supplement.
