Bio and Links
I have been researching my husband's family for over 25 years and love every minute of it. I never thought I would get so much enjoyment out of researching old records. My sister has been working on our family history for 40 plus years and I could never understand what the thrill was until I went with her one year to Frankfort to the Ky Historical Society and found my husband's family name in the family file drawer. And as they say, the rest is history. To me, genealogy is like a giant treasure or scavenger hunt. Each new piece of material is a treasure that's more precious than gold or silver.
OH, THE THRILL OF IT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If I add a name of a person that is a member of your family and you would like to add information or a bio for them, please contact me and I will gladly transfer ownership of that person to you. Also, my pictures are for your benefit so feel free to copy any that you want or need. I just enjoy taking them.

Dear Alice P,

RE: Padgett's
Thanks for the info. Such a sad story regarding your husband's parents. I know there are several Padgett families within Kentucky. My line mostly settled in Meade and Hardin County Kentucky for six generations. They originally lived on land that created Ft. Knox. My great-grandfather was one of the guards that supervised the gold when it was brought on trains and loaded into the Gold Depository. Prior to Kentucky, my line came here from Maryland. They were all Catholic going back to the late 1700s from what I've learned so far. I know there are also a lot of North Carolina Padgett's -- but I've not made a connection to that line so far. There are a few of us Padgett's researching the Padgett's that we can on Find-A-Grave -- primarily using Census, marriage, death, birth records, etc and linking them to family members to create virtual trees. You have a beautiful day too. Best, Chris

Ok. I don't have them on my tree. I trace my Padgett's back to James Baker Padgett who came to Kentucky from Maryland. Do you know if your husband's Padgett line was Catholic? Has he done a DNA test by chance?

RE: Rosa G (Maffett) Eggen
My public tree on is Christopher Glenn Padgett. What was your husband's mother's name? What about his grandparents that were Padgett's?

You may have this, but I thought you might find this interesting:
"Article take from E'town News dated Friday 04-04-1919 Died on Wed. 04-02-1919
Mrs. Orleans Eggen, widow of the late John Eggen, died at her home near Red Oak Grove school house Wednesday from the infirmities of old age.  She was about 84 years old and had been a consistent member of the Methodist church for many years.  The funeral was preached at Mt. Zion church yesterday and burial followed in the church burying ground.  She is survived by three sons and three daughters all of this county:Thomas Eggen, Sam Eggen, Burr Eggen, Mrs. Lizzie Glassner, Mrs. Will Miller and Mrs. Jerry Mulquinn."

RE: Peter Bowen Trowbridge
I used Union Furnace instead of Starr. That seems more accurate.

Glad I could help! Give me a yell anytime I can chip in and lend a hand.

I've added the info, but the dropdown list doesn't have a Hawkins County in Ohio. I used Hocking County...any ideas?

Thank you for the information. This problem was not new to me. I had seen the Mortality Schedule and have been to the grave site twice. The second time to get the photograph that shows. I never could find a census record for 1840 and 1850 for her.
I think the grave markers were placed many years after the burials. I still am not certain what is the date on the markers. Maybe somebody will get a better photo.
Thanks again
