Waddy Family

The Waddy family was the beginning of my genealogical quest.  In the 1920's my gg-grandmother Sarah Eason (Jones) Johnson drew a  rough family tree outline so her granddaughter Effie Swann could join DAR.   Seventy five years later Effie's cousin Virginia Sue (Johnson) Phelps Adams, who had inherited her grandmother's records, shared that information with cousin Lillyan (Johnson) Holmberg.  My great-aunt Lill then shared that information with me.  The rough family tree linking our family to William Waddy furnished me with the beginning of a lifetime of family research.  Effie Swann never joined DAR.  No one had ever joined DAR on the William Waddy line when I established him as a new ancestor via a 1999 supplemental.  It was with an immense degree of satisfaction that I completed my gg-grandmother's dream of memorializing her g-grandfather with a DAR line.   As I look back to that long line that precedes me, I know that they are smiling.
