Edwin W. Waddell

Deeply interested in all educational and moral questions, and exhibiting an active and intelligent public spirit in regard to whatever contributes to the advancement and welfare of the community, Edwin W. Waddell is one of the most enterprising and useful citizens of the section in which he lives. He was born on February 4, 1856, at Springfield, Ill., the son of Alfred and Sarah A. Waddell, the former a native of Illinois and the latter of Ohio. From Springfield when he was twelve years old he removed with the family to Greenfield, Mo., where he attended school four years longer, then working on his father's farm until he was twenty-one (at that time he with the rest of the family made their home in Fort Scott, Kan.), and then he engaged in farming on his own account until 1881, when he came to Montana, farming one year in Beaverhead valley, on at Toston, and four at Townsend for Gov. Potts and (Russell) Harrison on their ranch. In 1886 he removed to the Bitter Root valley, where he has been since engaged in ranching, stock and fruit raising, and giving close attention to all public matters of a local character. His ranch is about a mile and a half west of Hamilton, in one of the most fertile sections of the valley, and is in a high state of cultivation, well improved with good buildings, fences, etc. Mr. Waddell has been long a school trustee, and was the moving spirit in securing a schoolhouse in his neighborhood, donating the land for its site and grounds, and contributing materially towards its erection. Fraternally he is identified with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. He was married at Grantsville in 1889, to Miss Emma Withers, daughter of Andrew Withers, a resident of Kansas. Mr. and Mrs. Waddell have five children, Albert F., Blanch, Wilford, Glessie and Marie. Their home is a popular resort for their numerous friends.


Edwin married Emma Jane Withers, daughter of Andrew Withers and Unknown, in 1889 in Grantsdale, Ravalli, Montana, USA. (Emma Jane Withers was born on 27 Aug 1868,333 died on 10 Jun 1937 in Spokane, Spokane, Washington, USA 333 and was buried in Spokane, Spokane, Washington, USA 333.)
