I am a direct descendant of James Waddell, Alexander Waddell's son, who moved with his whole family to Webster Township, Vernon County, Wisconsin in the 1870s. Do you know anything about that branch of the family? For example, when did they go, why did they go, etc. I have a story written by my great grandmother about the journey, but there are no dates or reasons. In her story she says James was a soldier in the Civil War, but I can't find anything in Ancestry to validate that (there are soooo many James waddells. Any information that you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Helen. p.s. my family tree is over 1,200 and growing!
