Kari, My research so far has John Andrew Waddinton, from Yorkshire, England (m. Mary Margret Bastedo in Canada) as my great-great-grandfather. His son, Gilbert Tice Waddinton b. 1852,d.1910 (in Michigan) was my great grandfather. He married Barbara Ellen Randell in 1882. His son, Clayton William Waddinton b.1883, d.1951 (Texas) (m. Mary Ann (Anna)Miller b.1886 d.1906)is my Grandfather. My mother Rosella Muriel b.1906 d.1999 and her sister Melsia May b.1905 d.1994.
If any of these names look promising in your search. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can fill in a little more detail that room allows for here.I have found the Waddington side of the family hard to research.
