Recently I came upon a biography of Samuel F. Badders in A History of Sullivan County, Indiana. He was born in Columbiana County, Ohio January 5, 1827, a son of James and Christena (Frey) Badders, both of whom were born in York County, PA. They went to Ohio just after the war of 1812, but in 1829 returned to PA, where they spent the remainder of their lives on a farm in Beaver County.
I am interested since family tradition places my family in York County, PA at one time, but we have never been able to make the connection.
He had ten children, so there should be some relatives out there. Would like to contact this family to see if there is a connection.
