Children of Early Jackson and Wincy Titsworth Calk

Early Jackson “Jack” Calk married Louisa S. Champion on April 11, 1867. They had no children. Undocumented information says she died in 1872. He then married Wincy Louisa Titsworth on June 20, 1880, in Castroville, Medina, Texas. Evidently, Wincy was previously married and had a son named Levi Carlyle (Carlisle)Titsworth. It is also possible he was born out of wedlock. I found Wincy and Levi Titsworth on the 1880 United States Federal Census in Atascosa County, Texas, living with the John L. McCaleb family. The record states the relationship as “cousins.” This census was taken shortly before Early and Wincy married. Evidently, Early adopted Levi because he later uses the name of “Calk.” Following their marriage, they had six more children.

Levi Carlyle Calk was born on January 29, 1875, in Bonham, Fannin, Texas. He married Martha “Mattie” Dell Davis on December 26, 1897. They had six children in 12 years. To view information about his children, click on the following link. Family Group Sheet for Levi Carlisle Calk
