Somedays I just have to shut this down. It go's in circle's. My mom is 93 and her maiden name was Padgett, so some of the stuff she can help me with other's not so much. Seems they came from Indiana, moved to Kentucky and then into South East Missouri. Mom's dad was Chares Dewey Padgett (his mom was not married when he was born) his mother was Allie Viola Pagett her parents were George Washington Padgett and Susan Catherine Burnett. Their is a book about G.W.Padgett it's called A Robberty on the Iron Mountain Railroad. by Joe Hipp. We grew up hearing stories about bank robberies and being Indian, just thought my grandpa was windy. But it appears that is true. Still searching for their land allotment. Found one yesterday shows a George Padgett with a Dawnes #. And found more family on 1890 Oklahoma Territory census. I'm sure we're related but just how not sure. Families had so many children. I have a Sarah Ann Padgett but it shows she was from Indian and have not worked on it very long. If you live in that area, the church is a great source for that information.
