Chauncey had a sister ABIGAIL MIRIAM CALHOUN who married JOHN HATHAWAY as his second wife.
Chauncey is said to have moved to Watertown NY about 1802. However his first two children were born in Frankfort NY in 1801 and 1803. His third child was born in Watertown in 1806.
According to a Watertown Daily Times newspaper article by David Lane (12 Dec 1940) Chauncey was a carpenter by trade, and was employed as a mechanic in the construction of the Madison Barracks in 1815-16. A newspaper excerpt from the 07 Aug 1863 issue of the Daily New York Reformer, entitled "A Link in the Chain," mentions Chauncey as follows: "In 1810 [Jabez Foster] erected the first class mansion now occupied by L. Paddock, Esq. on Washington Street. The work was done by Chauncey Calhoun."
Chauncey is recorded as an early Trustee of the Village of Watertown and of Watertown's Universalist Church. He died on July 31, 1856. More information on the descendants is available from the contact listed below, but this sketch centers on the Jefferson County families.
