I don't know if this will help anyone but I thought I'd post it just in case!
I was in Antioch, Lake County, Illinois this weekend and was looking for my family and I found these Paddocks buried in a cemetery across from St. Peter's church (although St. Peter's said they only own part of the cemetery)!
Lewis A. Paddock (1838-1927) and his two wives: Valina G. (1838-1913) and Harriett (1838-1895).
Right next to them was a Aaron B. Paddock, who died on 5/11/1877 and was 70 year, 1 month old. and his wife Susan M. Norton, who died 4/5/1893, and was 80 years, 4 months old.I don't know the relation though.
Eugene M. Paddock, son of L. & H. Paddock (I'm assuming Lewis and Harriett) who died 3/21/1863.
Irving Paddock (son of Lewis Paddock)(1869-1945) and his wife Jessie (Bessette) (1872-1974) Their son Lewis I. Paddock (1904-1928).Next to their graves is also an Anna A. Paddock (1909-1970) and a Charles G Paddock (1906-1993), but I don't know their relation (possibly children?)
Then there was a George Paddock (12/26/1839) and his wife Mary (10/7/1841 - no death date is listed and it looks as if they printed that before she died but that maybe she was never buried there with her husband!Maybe she remarried or moved of something)
So that's it for the cemetery...there may have been more Paddocks but I didn't see them!
Then someone sent me a part taken out of the book 'Past and Present of Lake County' (1971)...it says:
Louis Paddock was a farmer born in Wisconsin in 1838; came to Lake Co. in 1840; married Harriet Savage in 1861 - Harriet having been born in New York in 1838.They had 4 children - Ella, Nettie, Irving, and Mable.Louis was a Republican and a Methodist.He served 2 terms as a school trustee.
Louis' father A.B. Paddock is listed as one of the first settlers in the western part of Antioch Township.He was born in NY in 1807, coming to Lake Co. also in 1840.He purchased 320 acres at that time on which Louis lived at the time of the publication of the book (p. 356). A.B. was elected a highway commissioner in the first township election in 1850. (p. 250)"
And finally here's my file on my Paddock's...I am related to Jessie Bessette, who married Irving Paddock...so if anyone has any other information on her ancestors or their descendants I would love to have it! :)
