Several variations of spelling (e.g., Wedeman, Wademan, & Waderman) have been used in various records.

HISTORY OF THE LACKAWANNA VALLEY
Daniel Waderman, of Hamburg, Germany, was the second settler. While visiting London in 1775, he was seized by a British press-gang, and forced into unwilling service. He was present at the battle of Bunker Hill, followed the fortunes of the British until 1779, when he was taken prisoner on the Mohawk. Taking the oath of allegiance, he enlisted in the American service, and, by his faithful deportment as a soldier during the remainder of the war, proved himself an unquestioned patriot. Under the shadows of the bluff, deepened by the foliage extending down to the edge of the Lackawanna, this scarred veteran, in 1790, brought forth his cabin. The house of Daniel Silkman now occupies its site. For a period of twenty-one years, Mr. Waderman lived here incomparative thrift and contentment, acquiring, by frugality, means to purchase wilder lands farther up the valley, where he died in 1835.

CITY OF SCRANTON page 138
The story of the founding of the Wedeman family in America reveals an unusual, to say the least, method of immigration, and one that one might well wish to avoid. Daniel Wedeman, a store-keeper and a single man, of Hamburg, Germany, had made a trip to London to purchase a stock of goods to replenish his depleted supply, when he was seized by British sildiers, compelled to don an English uniform, and was pressed into the service of that country. He was placed on a transport bound for America, where the war for independence was passing through its birth throes, preparatory to the long, grueling struggle that levied such a heavy toll of lives. Enraged because of the high-handed treatment to which he had been subjected, he deserted the British ranks and joined the Colonial forces, entering into the conflict with the double incentive to aid a cause which he believed righteous and to avenge his own abuse. He fought throughout the entire war, and after receiving an honorable discharge from the service he decided to remain in the land to which his fate had led him, and he purchased 400 acres of land near Providence, being the second white settler in the Lackawanna Valley. He erected a log cabin on the site until recently occupied by Daniel Silkman's home. He married and among his children was Peter.

History of Luzerne, Lackawanna and Wyoming Counties 1786-1880 page 383
Daniel Waderman of Hamburg, Germany was the second settler on Village Site. He had been seized by a press gang in London in 1775 and compelled to serve with the forces of the English until 1779 when he was captured by the Americans and served with them until the close of the war with great credit. He erected a crude cabin in 1790 on the site since occupied by the residence of Daniel Silkman. 21 years later removed further up the Valley where he died in 1835. Providence was formerly a township 5 miles square, formed in 1770 and named from Providence R.I. The first whites to locate there were Timothy Keyes, Andrew Hickman and Solomon Hocksey in 1771. They errected a cabin where Taylorville now is. In 1788 Enoch Holmes errected the first house on the site of Providence Village near what is now Oak and Main Streets. Daniel Wademan of Hamburg settled there in 1790, also Conrad Lutz, John Gifford, Constant Searles, John House, Jacob Lutz, Benjamin Pedrick, Solomon Bates and the Athertons."
