I am a female Wadsworth - from the genealogy information that my Uncle (Wadsworth) has gathered, he and my father are supposed descendants of Christopher Wadsworth from the Lyon(ship) of 1632.  Between my father and his only brother there are 6 sons and 6 grandsons and I am very interested in the DNA project.  As all of the males in question are still alive (thank heaven!), I will do my best to spark further interest in the DNA project.  Thank you for your interest.

My father was James Thomas Wadsworth, married Elizabeth A Donahoe and I have two brother, James T Wadsworth Jr and Walter E Wadsworth.  My son, Gable M Wadsworth is 25 born Atlanta GA.  I was born in Hartford CT in January 1946.  My brother has been tested and is #4 on the chart.  I would like to know the prevalence of Marsh name in the Wadsworth family as my Grandfather and his father each bore this middle name.

Samuel Wadsworth, B.1797 GA
William Wadsworth, B. 1856 Fl
Joseph William Wadsworth, B. 1899 FL

I am looking for Samuel Wadsworth's Father, I do not think Samuel was born in
Georgia nor do I think that is his Birth year. I did find a William Wadsworth
born in 1795 in Georgia (may be older brother)and his  Predigress goes
to Present day TX.  Also I have found a company they still makes the book
" 250 years of Wadsworth in America" written in 1883 family reunion. the site

Title: I have found some Wadsworths in IL
Post by: lindalathrop on February 26, 2008, 12:19:36 PM
While researching my Hooker family line I have discovered that one of the Hooker daughters married a Wadsworth in
Chicago, IL in 1871, the year of the Great Fire.
Her name was Alice G. Hooker and his name was Henry Wadsoworth.
They had two sons named Robert Francis Wadsworth and Harry "waddy" Wadsworth.
Waddy became a jazz musician in Chicago in the 20's and 30's.
I believe their father was called General Wadsworth and was a friend of my gggrandfather, Stephen G. Hooker, b. in
Brandon, VT, moved to Perrysburg, NY and then in 1856 to Chicago, IL.

Do any of these Wadsworth names sound familiar to anyone. I do have a photo of Waddy Wadsworth with a sextet that
he played with.
I am trying to find out where the Wadsworth's in Chicago, IL area were buried. Hookers were buried in Graceland Cemetery

Hope to hear from someone.

Could you tell me where your great grandfather Henry was born?
Did he live in Wyoming all his life or did he travel there while working on the train?
Do you know the year he died?
Do you know the name of his wife or children?

Thank you for the help.

Ronald Wadsworth born circa 1920's Wombwell/Hoyland, brother to Alvin, Gladny (married Gladys) and a sister. Ronald's father was a Deputy at the local pit and was nicknamed "Tupty" and whose first wife died quite early as he married the lady who nursed his first wife.

Ronald (Ron/Yorky) married Rosalind Reilly (from Hexham) and they had 5 children. Michael John (dob 1947), Philip James (dob 1948), David Paul (dob 1949), Barbara Anne (dob 1947), Susan Mary (dob 1946).

Very, very new at

My mother was a Wadsworth, although she was orphaned in infancy by the Spanish (Swine) Flu Epidemic of 1918.  The fortunate thing was that several documents from her family, includiing a very old family bible remained with her all her life.  Through this bible and several years of searching, I located a cousin, who supplied a DNA Sample before he died in  2008.  It is FT-DNA kit #120976, which I have joined into the Wadsworth Project.  The direct line pedigree is as follows:

William Wadsworth   c1768 Clones, Co. Monaghan, Ireland;  m ?
John Elder Wadsworth c1795 Clones, Co. Monaghan, Ireland; m Elonar Graham
John Wadsworth  Jun 10, 1829 Clones, Co. Monaghan, Ireland; m Nancy Jane Bonter
William John Wadsworth Feb 20, 1860 Ameliasburgh, Prince Edward Co., ON., Canada; m Eleanor Frances Coombs
Walter Sidney Wadsworth Nov 13, 1890 Gloucester, Carleton Co., ON, Canada; m Ina Maude Steele
James Robert Wadsworth Jan 10, 1938 in Penticton, BC, Canada

I now have a lot of information on this Irish family, many of whom immigrated to the U. S. and Canada between 1820-1850.

I notice this is a very close and meaningful match with Wadsworth Lineage 4, attributed to William Wadsworth, who immigrated 1632.  My Ancestry must tie into this line very closely before this William.  I have seen a claim that two Wadsworth brothers were given land in Ireland for "Services to the King" in the 1700's, but could never document it.  This is a very interesting new tie in the Wadsworth family.  I'd be happy to share inforrmation with knowledge of this family in Ireland.  I am the Administrator of the Rose DNA Project, DNARose at

My maiden name is Wadsworth.  Our research has revealed the following:
 Wadsworth, John b.1796 in Ireland d.1853 bur. Hungerford Twp. Hastings Co. Ontario Canada m. Jane Johnston (possibly 2nd wife) b.1804 Ireland d. 1889 bur. Logan Co. Kansas, USA
 Wadsworth, James b.1840 in Ireland d.1930 in Ontario Canada m. Catherine Rawlins (Rollins, Rawlings?) (b. 1847 in Biddulph Twp. Ontario d. 1942) in 1870.  
 Wadsworth, James Albert b.1876 in Wyoming, Lambton Co. Ontario Canada d.1961 in Lambton m. Annie Hutchison [(b.about 1877-1879 Harwich (England?)] in 1908 in Kent Co. d.1922 in Kent Co. Ontario, Canada
 Wadsworth, William Walter b. 1922 in Port Lambton, Lambton Co. d. 2009 In Lambton m.Gretta Ellen Beggs (b.1922 in Lambton Co. d.2008 in Komoka Ontario) both buried in MacDonald Cemetary in Port Lambton Ontario
  This info seems to fit into the W12 group in the Wadsworth Project.  I would have to get a cousin to get tested as there are no boys in my family.
