Hello Andrew !!
Thanks for the information regarding your ancestors.
My family is very small: only 2 males have the Widdis name, my father and I. He is 81 years old, and I am 50. I live in the State of Kentucky, he lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.
I did not know my paternal grandfather: his name was John Widdis, and, he lived in the United States in the State of New Jersey. I believe he was an electrician.
A genealogy book at the Cincinnati Ohio library seemed to indicate the name Widdis had English roots, perhaps Yorkshire. I have looked in the London England phone book and noticed there were quite a few people named Widdis.

I received a message from Tim Widdis who indicated there was a Confederate war general by the name of Widdis. I will have to research that topic.

Thanks again for the information !
