I'm trying to build that tree but so far no luck past my husband's grandfather, Thomas Padden b.1860 in either Cork or Mayo Co. Married Margaret Holmes b. 1864 and came to Luzerne co. PA. Do you think there is a match? Mary

I saw your message and thought I'd respond. I've been working on my family tree for a few years. I've traced the Padden's back to County Mayo and Balina. My great-great grandfather was Michael Padden born in County Mayo. My great-grandfather, also Anthony, came to Pennsylvania. I had heard family stories of some of the brothers going to Alaska and, in fact, recently visited Padden Lake which is in Washington State. The history was that a Michael Padden discovered it. Let me know if any of this might be a connection.

I just saw your message. I, too, am working on the Padden family tree. My father, also Anthony, was born in 1903 in Plains, PA near Wilkes Barre. I believe that it's in Luzerne County. I have information going back to a Michael Padden born in County Mayo, Balina. If you think this info might help, just let me know.

I grew up in Bellinghm, Wa. My grandfather who was John Vincent Padden was the first white child born there. His father was my great grandfather Michael Padden which Lake Padden was named for. Not because he discovered it but because he was killed by a 12 year old boy over a boundary dispute. I know he married Anna Connelly in 1877. He was was a widower with four childern: Mary Ellen, Anthony, Eddie and Nell. There is also a Tom, Dominic,and Michael W. I am not sure of their relationship

I am searching for information on a John Padden from co. Mayo who drowned on September 2, 1888 at age 50. His death was in the Ballina Journal n Sept 17, 1888. We believe that this is our great-grandfather. We believe my grandmother was his child born out of wedlock in 1881. Hew mother was Katherine Welch. This is an interesting situation as my grandmother immigrated to the us and had 11 children, so would like to find the Padden side. Thanks for any help.

Catherine,
I just read your message on the Padden Surname Board. I drove out to Lake Padden about a year ago and picked up a local history book which tells the story of Michael Padden. When I was in elementary school ( the early 1960s) my Great Aunt Catherine told me that I had cousins in the Seattle, Washington area. She gave me a name and address of a Gregory Padden and suggested I write him. He and I corresponded a few time but then stopped. Are you related to him? It's interesting that your married name ( I'm assuming) is Atkinson because the Paddens in Pennsylvania are also connected to the Atkinsons there.

There is some family stories of my great grandfather ( also Anthony Aloysius) having been remarried after the death of his first wife and that his second wife was once a baby his first wife took care of. Her name was Ann Murphy.
I'd enjoy hearing from you if any of this connects.
Thanks,
Tony

I am very pleased to hear from you. I had been checking the e-mail hoping to hear from you. If the following information matches yours then we are related somewhere. Michael Padden was born in Ireland (I believe Galloway.) He was a widower with four children: Mary Ellen born abt 1871, Anthony, who fought in the Spanish American
War, Eddie born abt. 1872, and Nell born abt. 1874 who married someone named Smith. I have no information on Michael's first wife.

In 1877 Michael married Anna Connelly in Bellingham,WA. They had two children Anna and John Padden, my grandfather, who married Abagail Lynn. My understanding is that Michael had several brothers, Tom and Dominic and one or two more,but I do not know their names. They all came to Pennslyvania and worked in the coal mines.

I do have some information on Anna Connelly. Her father married Bridge Dolly in Tuam, Ireland. They came to Pittsburg in 1862. Moved was in 1874 and to South Bellingham in 1877.

As far as I know I am not related to Gregory Padden.

My husband knew about the Atkinsons in pennsylvania but doesn't think they are connected to us.

My aunt told me that when she was a little girl Anthony came out for a visit. She said he brought his tent and slept outside. I'm thinking that maybe that is where we could be related but I have absoutely no information on him. My grandfather did go up to Alaska for the goldrush when he was about 19 years old.

I hope this information is helpful to you and look forward to hearing from you. Have a happy Thanksgiving.

Cathy
