Bio and Links
Bio Photo My goal on the Find a Grave website is to find the final resting place of ancestors that have laid the foundation of our lives. I think it is facinating to chart the path that helps connect our lives and our children's lives to those that carved out a new life, under harsh conditions in a new world to bring us the freedom and lifestyle we have today.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW before you trespass on Private Property to take photos....

The Law regarding photographs on Private Property

BE CONSIDERATE of those families who may still be in mourning!

Praising the Lord for my ancestors who were faithful to the Holy Scriptures and laid the foundations for those of us who would come after.

Romans 8:37-39 (NAS)
"But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Heard the song at this link and realized how God's Grace extends through all generations!

Christ is Risen by Matt Maher

Sorry I did not find a tumbstone. You will see what I did find. If not mistaken you have a line through Richard Green American Revolution. I don't take pictures of tombstones. I do photos. Blessings from God. K

Waddle Andrew
The org. name was spelled Waddle if you look at the census records and probate records you will see it, I know the name was changed in later years to Waddel Waddell.
