Our Caudle family is still somewhat of a mystery. We have tentatively tied the family line back to Buckner Caudle of Rowan County, NC., but the final proof is still to be found. Older family members who knew Sarah Caudle mentioned that she was "dark "...stating that "she was French or something like that". I have met at least one cousin who has the "Mediterranean" olive skin coloration and features...and I have heard from others researching this family that these same features were quite prevalent in the children born to Sarah's brother, Charlie Caudle. It has been stated by those researching the Caudle surname that the original ancestors arrived on the shores of Scotland as survivors of the defeated Spanish armada. This fact may never be known...but these characteristics manifest... generations removed from our original immigrants. If anyone can add to this family line, or would like more information on those that are listed, please contact me at the address below.
