John Weddle
Birth: 1739
Death: Sep. 5, 1799
Hawkins County
Tennessee, USA

John & his wife Mary immigrated to America in 1774 and initially lived in Baltimore until 1786. Ultimately the family trekked further West and settled in Tennesse on the North bank of the Holston River near Possum Creek, Stanley Valley. They raised nine children: Amos, Elias, George, Thomas W., Daniel, Mary, John W., James R. & David E.
John's wife Mary Walling died after him in Hawkins County as evidenced by her signature on a deed-of-sale on Sept. 4th, 1800. Her grave like that of her husband remains unknown but is thought to be near the Nolichucky River in Greene County Tennesse.

John and Mary Weddle were the inspiration for THE WEDDLE BOOK, compiled by Elizabeth [Weddle] Mueting [memorial #79199746] in the early 1970's. Her efforts traced the family genealogy from John & Mary to her own generation. One of her sources was the diary of David D. Weddle [#79703409]. David stated that his grandfather John, was the son of Joseph. Furthermore, John had siblings : George, Daniel, Joseph & Susan.
Elizabeth reported that John had been born in Holland as indicated by her grandfather Thompson Smith Weddle, Sr. While, The David D. Weddle diary states Hollen, Germany. Consequently, John's place of origin remains debatable.

Editor's note: The Weddles of Floyd County, Virginia and of Pulaski County, Kentucky may be related through Benjamin [28857721] and/or George [36947749] to John. The connection has not been discovered or resolved. Particularly, George's migration from Rotterdam in 1729 at age 17, would imply a relation to John of possibly an uncle.
