Thru documents I've found, I'm not sure where Thomas WADDELL was born. I find him listed as born in AL and GA on census forms and NC on son Henry Samuel's AL death index.
I also found Thomas and Sarah's daughter Sallie T. married to George Conielius FLOYD 4 Dec. 1879 with found children Ada married to Hugh Sanford, John E., George C. died as infant, Shirley, infant son died, Herbert and Samuel N. married to Tura MANN. Sam and Tura FLOYD's daughters Virginia married to a BOND and Betty married to Harry H. PARKER, Jr. all in AL.
Just putting all this out there in hopes of finding Thomas WADDELL.
