Hello: As I said I don't know very much about my great Uncle Thomas Padden. My mom said he was Irish.Where he orginated from I don't know.I know that he and his wife Florence (Floss) had three children. Thomas JR. no birth date. Robert (Bob) no birth date. and a daugter.I don't remember her name. As far as I know the children still live in CA.Florence passed on in the 70's?
My mom is an only child and doesn't know that much about her Westervelt side of the family.In fact she doesn't know much about her Warner (Werner) side of the family either. I know Florence's parents Charles J. Westervelt was born 1855 Ingram Co., MI. Martha Jane (Jenne) Vedder was born 1861 Thompkins, Jackson Co., MI.They came to MN in the late 1800's.Their children were born in Ramsey county.
Wished I could give you more information on Tom Padden.But, I don't know any more.
