In Reply to: Alexander Roddy, Rev. War patriot? by Ruth Browning of 805

Alexander Roddy is my 3rd great grandfather and the information that I have has been passed down from family members. Alexander was born 2/7/1757 in Cumberland, Pennsylvaina and died 11/21/1840 in Jackson Co, Arkansas and was buried in Walnut Woods Cemetery. His wife Agness Jamison Roddy, b. 5/26/1765 d. 9/7/1843 is also said to be buried there. He is listed as a soldier in Continental army.
Their son Elias B. Roddy, b. 5/1/1806, d. 1/17/1855 is also buried there. Elias was married to Martha Ann Hill but I show she was buried in Lavaca Co. TX. not sure about this but the Roddy's did end up there.
Alexander's parents were Alexander Roddy b. about 1731 in Ireland and d. about 1786 in Startenburg, SC and Mary Candor b. abt 1727 in Ireland, d. abt 1786. Source for this is listed as "History of Susquehanna & Juniata Valleys, Pennsylvania" vol 2
It is wonderful that this is being done to the cemetery, I hope that this will at least be a clue to the information you need.
