Another family in Hillsboro, is the Gaddy family. Old man Ithamer Gaddy
was the first known; his wife, Charity, was a Miss Pitman, sister of the old man Hardy Pitman,
who seventy-five years ago lived near by, and was a prominent citizen: the name Pitman is not
found in the county.
Old man Ithamer Gaddy was a most excellent man, quiet and inoffensive, a Christian gentleman;
he raised a large family, five sons and two daughters; the sons were William, James, Hardy, Allen
and Silas; the daughters were Elizabeth and Mary (Polly as she was called).
