Asdell/Azdell; 1700's-now; Ireland>US

Hello! My name is Laura Goist and I requested this forum to research my mother's maiden surname, Asdell.

As you may or may not be aware, there were probably 4 or more Asdell/Azdell (the names are completely interchangeable) immigrants who came from Ireland, possibly Antrim County, to St. Clair Township, Columbiana County, Ohio circa 1805-1830's. They were likely brothers and/or cousins. I have documented their descendants as they have have fanned out across the US to Indiana, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington state, etc.

They were: Andrew Asdell b 1782, John L. Asdell, born January 2, 1798, George Asdel born 1816, and George Azdell born 1808. There was also a William Asdell on the 1840 census, as well as a Jane Asdell. Jane was old enough to have been the mother of these Asdells, but that is just a theory.

If anyone is researching the Asdell/Azdell surname anywhere in the US, Ireland, or Scotland, I would dearly love to hear from you. I am accumulating a comprehensive database of all Asdell ancestors and descendants, with the help of several other researchers across the country. So please, let's compare notes! I already have several hundred Asdells in my database, so odds are fairly good that I may be able to help you, and maybe you can add to our accumulated knowledge as well!

Thanks and happy hunting!
