Alexander Waddell of Pocahontas Co W VA & Gallia County, Ohio, was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1732 and was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church for 72 years. He has been described as "A man of sterling class, sent especially by Providence for the country in it's time of need." He fought under George Washington in the Revolutionary War, and was also a soldier in the War of 1812. Alexander Waddell was listed as a participant in the battle at Point Pleasant and did his country good service. His descendants in Green Township exhibit with pride, a powder-horn that he carried into this battle. He was the husband of Eleanor Roush and father of 12 known children: William, James, Mary, John, Jane (Jennie), Ann, Elizabeth, Isabella, Joseph, Alexander Jr, Martha & Miriam. He died in 1834 at the age of 102 years. Upon his tombstone is the following inscription: A MAN THAT FOUGHT FOR LIBERTY BUT NOW HIS SOUL DOTH REST IN PARADISE
