Calvins first wives, Edith and Nancy, have separate FindAGrave.com memorials. Both are buried in the Cincinnatus Cemetery, under surname Whealock. So I think this clarifies who his three wives are, and will allow us to identify which children were born to which wife. I've added the FindAGrave references to the sources.
