I am looking for information on the Gaddy family that lived in or near Falls City in the early 1900's. There is a old abandon Gaddy cemetery on Black Pond Road with no markers. Would like information on the cemetery or possible the people buried there. My grandparents, William Riley Gaddy 1889-1959 and wife Ophelia SOUTER Gaddy 1892-1964 were members of the Baptist Church at Bethlehem, Falls City. A hand written letter by John H. Smith (REV?)
states Brother Riley and Sister Ophelia were members of the church in 1912. This being about the time of their marraige (1911). Riley and Ophelia had three boys, George Horace b.1911, William Howard, and John.
William Riley was the son of John T. Gaddy 1860-1934 and Missouri ABEL Gaddy 1862-1962. John T. father Hardy S. Gaddy 1815-1895 moved form Randolph County AL to Winston/Walker County about 1870 and settled in the Black Waters community, located near the Walker-Winston county line. There is a Gaddy Cemetery located on Johnsey Dairy Road in the Macedonia Blackwater area on land that Hardy owned.
Any information on the above people will be appreciated.
