Caudill "Cousins" Exchange

kentucky-relief.gif (136059 bytes)


Welcome to Caudill "Cousins" Exchange, a website devoted to the genealogical research of the Caudill family and all of the derivations, such as Cordill, Coddle, Cottle, Caudle, Cordial, etc.

It is my hope that this site can become a clearinghouse for all Caudill related material, websites, Reunion information, family trees, "stories" and "tales".

Stephen Caudill (Cordill) is generally acknowledged to be the progenitor of the Caudill family. He is thought to have emigrated from Scotland, but there is more than one theory, to Lunenburg Co VA. From there he moved to Wilkes Co., NC. His sons immigrated to Eastern Ky where they are ancestors to a large family that has spread throughout the US. Within this family is a rich history of a hardy pioneer family that mirrors the development of the US frontier. They moved to the western frontier (at that time KY) fought Indians and helped to settle the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern Kentucky. The family has frontiersmen, soldiers (Revolutionary War, both sides of the Civil War) Loggers, Coal Miners, Farmers, Merchants, many Baptist Preachers and even Moonshiners!

Come in to the Caudill Cousins Website and join in the search. Take some time to look around then help us make this site interactive by contributing a small piece of the puzzle that you may know.
