As you will see, most of my researching began back in the late 1990s. Now through advanced technology and more people and information on the internet I need to publicly make a correction statement.
First of all, Jack Callaway and I have been researching a MATTIE / MAGGIE GIDDINGS, for years now, in hopes of trying to find a link within our families. With so many similar names it has been difficult. Jack has found some needed information from the Ashtabula Genealogy group but was NOT provided to me when I was doing my researches with them back in the 90s.
His MATTIE GIDDINGS and my MAGGIE GIDDINGS are indeed two different people with different parents. My MAGGIE has Lewis R Giddings and Elect J. Burlingham as parents.
Much much thanks to Jack Calloway for pursuing this further.
