ANNE (COX) WADDELL
3. Anne2 Cox (John1) and James Waddell were married by Hugh Cull on 28 Sep 1814 in Wayne County, Indiana. Census records suggest that James was born about 1788 in Maryland and that Anne was born before 1790. James was living in 1850, aged 62, but Anne appears to have died between 1840 and 1850.
A James Waddle served in Capt. John Farlow's company of Wayne County militia from 18 May to 18 July 1813, which company also included Joseph and David Cox (Charles M. Franklin, Indiana War of 1812 Soldiers Militia ).
James Waddell bought 60 acres, the NE4 of section 33, township 12, range 1 in Wayne County from Mary Minor on 4 Apr 1817, which land later became part of Union County (Wayne Co. Deeds A:399).
James Waddle bought lot 47 in Abington from John Cox, Sr. on 12 Jul 1821, at which time James resided in Union County (B:429). The day before, he had joined with Joseph Cox and Thomas Moffitt to purchase the remainder of John Cox's land just to the north of Abington (B:424). They sold part of the land to Christian and J. Brower on 29 Apr 1822 (C:216) and Joseph Cox appears to have sold his share in the remainder to Waddle and Moffitt on 4 Oct 1824 (F:119). Moffitt and Waddell disposed of the land to David Railsback on 1 Apr 1825 (E:248). Waddell sold lot 47 to Christian Brower on 4 Feb 1823 (D:5).
On 18 Nov 1823, Elijah and Rebekah Wadell sold James Wadell of Union County 20 acres on the west side of the W2 of NW4 of section 34 in T12, R1W in Union County, on the waters of Hannahs Creek (Union Co. Deeds B:67). James Waddell bought 40 acres in Union County on 31 Jan 1829 and sold 22 acres of the 40 the same day (C:68 & 77). Waddell sold all his Union County land to P. Hunt on 11 Feb 1836, totalling 132 acres and located in sections 28, 33 and 34 of township 12, range 1 (F:453).
On 11 Feb 1830, James Cox sold James Waddle of Union County 30 acres in Preble County, Ohio, part of the SE4 of section 19, T7, R2E (Preble Co. Deeds 14:314). Waddell sold this land on 23 Jul 1833 (14:315).
Michael Cox suggests, convincingly, that the Waddells removed to Miami County, Indiana, based on the following census records:

James Waddle entered the SW4 of section 15, Perry township (T29N, R4E), Miami County on 10 Dec 1835, where he was one of the earliest settlers. A Joseph Cox bought land the same year in section 22, just to the north of section 15, but does not seem to have removed to that County (History of Miami County, Indiana 715 [Chicago: Brant & Fuller, 1887]).
James Waddle is reputed to have been living on the Samuel Seidner place not far from Niconza, prior to 1836. . . .
About the year 1836 a small store was started by James Waddle at Niconza [then Utica], his business house being a diminutive log cabin, 14x15 in size, about one mile distant from any habitation. His stock consisted of a few groceries and several pieces of dry goods, and his patrons were limited to the several families in the vicinity. The store was in operation about two years.
(Id., pp. 713 & 718). James is also said to have established the first postoffice in the township in 1837 (John A. Graham, Pioneer History of Peru and Miami County 29 [1877; Rept. 1979]).
James Waddell sold his original 160 acres of Miami County land on 21 Dec 1847, but seems to have still been a resident of the county at the time of the 1850 census. On 16 Mar 1850, a James Waddell purchased 80 acres in Fulton County, which land he sold on 19 Jan 1853 (Fulton Co. Deeds H:87 & 88).
A 21 Aug 1840 letter of Joseph Cox mentions that David Waddell was visiting him in Rapids City, Illinois and had arrived in eight days from home, leaving all well except Westley, "who was very low with the liver complaint."
