William Askew Addington (28 Jun 1823, Buncombe Co., NC - 29 Jun 1905, Winnebago Co. WI) is the son of
Moses Addington (1793-1858) and his wife Lydia Duckett, son of
William Addington (1759-1845) and his wife Delilah Duncan, son of
Henry Addington (?1720-1787) and his wife Sarah Burson
William Askew Addington moved his family to Alabama in the early 1850's. He served in the Confederate Army under Gen. Forrest in the Civil War, wounded at Resaca, Georgia. Life in the southern states had become quite difficult after the Civil War. In 1869, William led six families north to Wisconsin, arrived with $19.00 and nine children suffering with measles.
