Transcribed by Charlene Wilson, From Patricia Gaddis' G*dd*s website:
The following are excerpts related to Gaddis from the journals of Josiah V Thompson. These journals are 28 volumes. Per Charlee Wilson, who has taken on the task of transcribing these journals, they are, "about 600 pages in length, legal size, especially bound for Josiah VanKirk Thompson. His intent was to publish a book on the ancestry & descendants of his Revolutionary War ancestors. He was a member of the Sons of the American Revolution. He began his extensive project in the late 1890's & recorded in his journals until the day before he died in 1933. By that time, he was blind, penniless & estranged from his son."
Charlee has allowed me access to her computerized transcript of the journals and approval to post the Gaddis portions onto our webpage for the benefit of our researchers.
She has been posting the families she has put together from these journals to the WorldConnect project on Rootsweb. That is how I first found out about them. The only family I recognize as mine in these journals is in Volume 16, pg 235/236 and 500. Adam Gaddis and Catherine White and family. I believe this is my Adam Gaddis and Catherine McKee.
I have gone through all the postings to date in the WorldConnect project pertaining to Gaddis in these journals and extracted the sections from those journals. They are journals numbered 5, 9, 16, 18, 20 & 21. Below you will find the sections in numerical order by volume number and page number within each volume. I have tried to make sure that I set up the names the same way as they are in the journals.
If you find that your family is mentioned here you may get in touch with me and I can share a larger portion of that section with you. I tried to limit what I put on the webpage. Due to that, the text may seem a little disjointed.
These volumes are available through the Family History Library in Salt Lake City from Charlee's donation of her transcripts.
If you have any questions regarding these journals, feel free to contact me.
If you have found our pages by doing a search on a search engine, such as google.com, and been brought to this page, but Gaddis is not one of your family names, you may contact Charlee Wilson by finding her on the WorldConnect pages.
It is Charlene Wilson who is transcribing the journals. The webpage that google.com brought you to is this Gaddis webpage where I extracted all the Gaddis entries from the journals and put them on the internet for my Gaddis mail list.
Actually, the names that Charlene has transcribed are on the RootsWeb website in the World Connect Project.
To find the names, go to http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com Under where it says "More than 162 million names on file" type in the name Gaddis, Adam to search on, then click on the GO button. This will take you to a page Adam Gaddis'. The very first one (at least on my screen) is an Adam Gaddis married to a Catherine White. Under "database" on the right hand side it will say charwil. That means that Charlene Wilson submitted these names.
If you click on her name it will take you to a page with an alphabet click list of all the names she has submitted. If you type in the surnmae you are looking for in the search box, it gives you any hits for the name. Click on the your surname with the number of hits after it (if there were any) and it will give you the given names and some data of the surname you searched for. Continue on the same with the other surnames.
Now on to the Gaddis extractions taken from Charlee's work.
