I'm looking for information regarding the Waddell family from County Monaghan , Ireland who immigrated to Canada and the USA about 1841 or earlier. Specifically the the Ottawa, Ontario, Canada area (Osgoode, Metcalfe, Russell) and in Michigan USA.

Church records from Glennan Presbyterian Chuch and St. Salvator Anglican Church have some records.

I believe there five siblings
Alexander Waddell (b) 1781 married Sarah Jane (surname possibly Russell)
Ann Waddell (b) 1789 married William Morrow married 23 Mar 1809
James Waddell (b) 1793 married Ellen Craig or Elizabeth Craig
John Waddell (b) 1794 married Elisabeth Harbison or Harveston
William Waddell (b) 1796 married a Elizabeth or Betty

Alexander Waddell and Sarah Jane had the following children
Sophia Waddell (b) 1801 married James Busby
Alexander James Waddell (b) 1803 married Ruth Nancy Morrison
William Waddell (b) 1807 married a Elizabeth or Betty children Isiah 1822, John 1824, Esther 1827
Elizabeth Waddell (b) 1811

DNA matches already connect Alexander James Waddell and Sophia (Waddell) Busby families. Hoping other descendants will take the Ancestry DNA test and post family trees as far back as able to prove ancestors.

Other possible connections are
Robert Waddell 1751 - 1811 maried Elizabeth 1758 - 13 Feb 1828 - Pullis , Monaghan, Ireland

James Waddell married Sarah had two sons twins John 1804 and Robert 1804
the sons may have married
James Waddell married Mary had a son Thomas Waddell 1826
Robert Waddell married Margaret Ann Reid and had a son Robert Alexander Waddell 1826

If you can expand on these people's descendants please contact me at .

Also post a note if you've taken the DNA test and are a descendant of the Waddell families orginating from Ireland.

Thank you.
