The majority of this work contains information about two Irish families of different backgrounds who migrated to the United States at different times and both ended up in Texas. The Caldwell line begins with a presumably Presbyterian patriarch from Northern Ireland, William Caldwell [Ca. 1799 – Ca. 1850], whose line carries a genetic mutation of six toes on one foot and/or six fingers on one hand. The Fagan line follows Nicholas Fagan [1785 IRE-1852 TX], Irish Catholic from County Westmeath who arrived in Texas about 10 years before the Texas Revolution.
