I don't know if my Paden family is of the Obediah Padens, but my great grandmother was Mary Edith Paden daughter of a Robert G. Paden and Rachel Wilson. Mary was b. May 8, 1822, in Fairfield Co., Ohio. She m. Jesse O. Smith on April 3, 1851 in Fairfield Co., Ohio. If you can tell me if this is the same Robert it would be greatly appreciated. There is some hints of an Obediah Paden but nothing to tie Robert to.
