Looking for information on David, Alexander, Jesse, Issac, Dr. Daniel and others related to these Waddles. They arrived in Southern Illinois in 1786. Some latter changed to Waddell.

Did any of your Waddles live in Fleming County, KY, Ross or Fayette County, Ohio or marry a Baird or a Beard?

I wish I could answer that question. I know from history books that David Waddle arrived in Southern Illinois in 1787 with a party lead by James Lemon. That party started out from Wheeling (W)Virginia and came down the Ohio River. Where these Waddles came from has eluded me so far. I was hoping that DNA would solve it but the last male Waddell from my line passed a couple months ago without leaving a sample.
Sorry I can't help more.

Surnames: Waddle, Beard, Baird, McLain
There are at least two Waddle families in Ross and Fayette Counties in Southern Ohio. One family came directly from Belfast, Ireland. The other came from Maryland via Kentucky. A lot of Ross and Fayette residents arrived via the Ohio river. I have been researching Beard and Baird and there was a Francis Waddle who married a Mary Jane Beard. There is also a Samuel Waddle from Kentucky, who married a widow, Eliz. McLain. I have wondered if this was not a second marriage for him, since there was a Nellie Waddle who joined the Presbyterian church in Ross County and there was a Samuel Waddle who married an Eleanor Baird in Fleming County, KY. There is a David Beard who died in Fayette, Oh in 1820, leaving a son, Evan. Evan later settled in St. Clair, IL and gave his place of birth as Fleming, KY. There were a lot of Samuel Waddles in Ohio, so that is also a tough one!

SAMUEL WADDLE, Judge Daniel McLean's step-father, was a Kentuckian by birth ; removing to Ross County, Ohio, from whence he came to Fayette, in March, 1810, locating on a piece of ground four or five miles south of Washington. During the Indian troubles of 1812, he engaged in the defense of his country, being chosen major. In 1814 he removed to Washington and two years later engaged in the mercantile business, continuing in the same till his death, which occurred in 1828. In 1814 he purchased seven lots in the town of Washington, for which he paid in cash $10,000. After his death the property did not realize $1,000 outside of the dower set aside for his widow. This instance is cited to illustrate the terrible depreciation of property during that period.

What a shame y-dna was missed in your search for the waddle family connection. May I suggest you look into family finder dna which will give you results from both male and female for comparison.

Yes,I know about family finder but it's a little expensive. Maybe the economy will get better and I'll try that. Thanks.
