William Addison lived in North Carolina. He had 3 sons, Iverson Thomas, and
William. The 3 boys came to Cadiz, Henry County, Indiana in the 1820's. It
was a dense forest at that time.

1. Iverson Addison was born in 1806. He was married once and had 1 son and 2
daughters. He was killed on Dec 27, 1836, while caring a wild hog on his
back. He slipped on the ice and broke his neck. His death occurred a short
ways south of Cadize and he was buried near Cadig. His son was 9 years old at
the time of his death.

2. Thomas Addison was born Aug 16, 1808 He was married twice. Thomas and his
first wife had 4 sons and 4 daughters. They lived near Cadiz. His first wife
died the latter part of 1841. She was buried near Cadiz. On Sept 10, 1842,
Thomas married his second wife. Gathering up his children he had trouble in
getting his daughter Margaret who was 8years old, from the people who had
her, as they didn't want to give her up. Thomas told them he had come after
her and would take her or lose every drop of blood in his veins. He told them
he had a good wife and she was willing and wanted him to bring his children
home. Thomas had 8 children and his newly wedded wife had 3. This made for a
good sized family, but they moved to the northeast corner of Shelby County on
an 80 acre farm that Thomas purchased.





They had 7 children by Thomas wife who died Aug. 22 1886. Thomas had 1 son at
home at that time, Washington. They lived there a few years longer, then
Thomas and Washington went to Greenfield and lived with Thomas's daughter
Christian Addison Adams. In Nov. of 1894 Washington no in good health drove
from Greenfield to Wolf's Mill Race 3 miles north of Morristown, Ind. And
drowned himself. That and old age, finished Thomas Addison who died Dec 15,
1894, past 86 years of age. Thomas and his second wife are buried in the
Asbury Cemetery, north of Morristown, Ind.



3. William Addison was married twice. He had 3 sons and 1 daughter by his
first wife, who died in Carthage, Ind. In 1860. William was a store keeper in
Carthage in early days and sold among other things liquor. Later he and his
second wife moved to Burlington, Ind., now Arlington, Ind. North of Cartage.
William and his second wife had no children.
