I have traced my surname ancestors back to my great, great, great grandfather, Benjamin Franklin, Paden.He was born in Virginia, 03 October 1793 and lived in Dekalb, Alabama where he married Margaret Elmira Miller. They had 9 children, Alfred M. Paden, John Paden, Benjamin Franklin Jr. Paden, Andrew Paden, Sarah Paden, William Paden, Martha Paden, Susan Paden, and Mary Caroline Paden. Their names appear in the 1851 Census of Cherokee's east of the Mississippi.They eventually migrated to what is now Oklahoma.
Would appreciate any information about their family while in Alabama. Will happily share any info I might have discovered along the way.
