      WILLIAM B. CALVERT . . . b. abt. 1790. (Census) Prince William county, Va.; d. abt. 1863, Rowan county, Ky. Buried in Siloam Cemetery. 1st m. Dec. 15, 1815, in Fleming county, Ky., to HESTER RIGDON, b. abt. 1799, in Pa. (Census); d. abt. 1851, Fleming county; 2nd m. abt. 1852, to ELIZABETH (EVANS) JACKSON, b. May, 1817, in Ky.; d. 1899, Fleming county, Ky.. widow of Houston Jackson and dau. of Isaac Evans and his wife Sarah Roberson.

      William B. Calvert, a son of Jesse and Constant (Calvert) Calvert . . . , was born about 1790 as Census Records show. He was taxed in Nicholas county, Ky., in 1829, 1830, 1831, but owned no land.

      The 1830 Census for Nicholas county shows him as aged between 30 and 40 years?his wife, between 20 and 30. They had 1 son of 10 and under 15; 2 sons of 5 and under 10; 1 son under 5; 1 dau. of 5 and under 10; and 2 dau. under 5.

      In this Census he was numbered 157. living near his brother, Page Calvert, numbered 159. Following Page's name came Jesse Calvert, aged between 60 and 70. It appears to have been a family group living close to one another.

      Peter Tuttle, whose wife Elizabeth, was another of the children of Jesse and Constant Calvert, was also living in Nicholas county.

      No one seems to know surely what the middle initial, "B," stood for, but possibly for "Burgess." His son, Burgess D. Calvert, named one son William Burgess Calvert, seemingly for his father. William B. Calvert, subject of this sketch, was far too old to have been a son of Gerrard Calvert and his wife Rosannah McIlvaine, as some have claimed. This couple were married Nov. 14, 1798.

      William B. Calvert, known familiarly as "Buck" Calvert, is said to have been a great wrestler. He married first Hester Rigdon. who died about 1851. His second wife was Elizabeth (Evans) Jackson, a widow with one daughter, Louisa Jackson, who married her mother's step-son, Burgess D. Calvert about 1853.
