Most secondary sources have all the children born in Huntingdon Co., PA, but the 1850 Censuses (and other records) show that all, except Benjamin, were born in Maryland.
If Edith really was born in 1785, then she is either Caleb's twin or Sarah was full-term pregnant when she married Elijah or Edith is not their daughter.

Children with Elizabeth:
none
