Isham Meadows b. 16 Feb 1740 in Bristol Parish, Prince George Co., Virginia baptized 3 January 1741/2 in Bristol Parish, Prince George County, Virginia. He married Frances Acree Goode is what I have. It could be a mix up with another Frances Acree who may have married a Goode first- I just do not have proof of the Goode name. He died 4 April 1829 in Harris County, Georgia, aged 89. Named for Isham of Bermuda Hundred-lived near the James River 1649 settlement in VA called Bermuda Hundred, which is supposed to be one of four Meadows family settlements, Bristol Parish, Prince George Co., VA (His father was Daniel)

Blacksmith shop, closest building on the left.
Photo history: Mr. A. E. Turner Jr. gave a copy of the original photograph to Vera Garrett Justice (wife of Aubrey Justice); then (my) Aunt Vera gave a copy of the picture to Frances Justice Warren. Finally Aunt Frances gave a copy of the photo to my mother, Martha Justice Abernathy; and she printed this copy for me.
Thanks go out to everyone who has passed on this bit of Calcis history!
Anyone have more historical/old photographs of Calcis?
I would love to see them!
