Re: Acton/Padgett connections to Port Tobacco
Howard, Our William is William E. Penn (1842-1901) that married Emma Jane Sparrow (1848-1881) daughter of Benjamin Sparrow and Eliza Beall Padgett Sparrow.I assume that the "Offa Padgett" is the same person as "Orphia" (possibly Ophelia Acton Padgett b. 1782?) who was the wife of Moses Padgett and mother of Eliza Beall Padgett Sparrow. Thanks for your help on this line!!
