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,
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!
