At the session of the Board of Supervisors held in June, 1869, William Waddell and others came before that body with a petition for the removal of the county seat from Lewis to Atlantic. Mr. Waddell had been a school teacher at Lewis, for a number of years clerk of the district court of the county, and was well known as a brisk and substantial young man. A few months before his appearance before the board he had abandoned Lewis for the rival town, and was now in the employ of Franklin H. Whitney, as a representative of the Atlantic Town Company.
Transcriber's Note: Page 471 is referenced in the index for William Waddell, but page 471 holds the biography of Ralph Gurley Phelps and does not contain any mention of William Waddell by name.
