I have been given some additional information for my family tree (I'm reasonably certain that these are correct) so I thought I would post it here and see if I can gather any more information.

It appears that this is my great-grandfather's (on my mother's side) family:

The 1880 Census shows Isaiah Waddy living in Flat Rock, Kershaw Co., SC. The family is:
Isaiah Waddy--age 40--born in SC--farmer
Penelope--wife--age 26--born in SC (probably 2nd wife looking at age of son)
Isaiah Waddy--son--age 16
Betsy Waddy--daughter--age 13
Mary Waddy--daughter--age 11
Henry Waddy--son--age 10
Peggy Waddy--daughter--age 8
Thomas Waddy--son--age 5 <------great-grandfather
Lania Waddy--daughter--age 1

Then there is the following information on my grandmother's family:

The 1900 census shows in SC:
Thomas Waddy--age 20 (should be 24 or 25)--Married 1 year
Laura Waddy--age 20--wife

1910 Census in Lancaster Co. SC--Pleasant Hill Twp.
Thomas Waddy--age 28
Laura Waddy--age 26--married 11 years--6 children, 3 living
Hitley--age 8 (actually Hetley)
Charlotte--age 3
Willene--age 1 <---- my grandmother

1920 census in Pleasant Hill:
Thomas Waddy--age 38
Laura--age 34
Hetley--age 16
Charlotte--age 12
Willene--age 10 <----- grandmother
Gladys--age 8
Marie--age 5
Mary Frances--age 6 months (everyone called her Frances)

The 1930 census in Kershaw shows:
Laura--age 43--widowed
Marie--age 15
Mary F.--age 10 (Frances)

If any of this information sounds at all familiar, please let me know. Thanks!
