Following Obituary submitted by Fay Kummer, Ronandfay@aol.com, 111 Brookmeade Drive, Pittsburg, PA 15237

Mrs. Celia Fish Paden, oldest daughter of Joseph and Deborah Fish was born at Rensellaerville, NY July 1st, 1804 and died at the home of her son James Paden of Galesburg, Nov 19th, 1894, aged 90 years, 4 months and 18 days. She was laid to rest in the cemetery at Knoxville, Ill. She was married in Pennsylvania to Isaac Paden March 17th, 1825, this lacking but a few months of 70 years that they journied together here.

She leaves her husband and six children to mourn her loss; D. J. Paden of Le Seurr, Minn; James Paden of Galesburg, Ill; Mrs. Mary a Stephens of Galesburg, Ill; Mrs. Mariah Stephens of Lake Elmo, Minn; and Albert F. Paden of Galesburg, Ill. She also leaves one sister, Mrs. Annie Joles, of Geneseo, Ill, and three or four brothers and sisters in Pennsylvania, besides a host of descendants and friends. Her descendants have numbered 156 - 118 of whom are now living, including four of the fifth generation.

Mr. & Mrs. Paden came to Illnois in 1843, and endured all the hardships and privations of pioneer life; but have lived to see the prairies of Illinos converted into prosperous farms and magnificent cities. When they first came to Galesburg, it was only a little village of fifteen or twenty houses. They moved from Galesburg to a farm one mile south of Woodhull, in 1853 and lived there until the spring of 1870, when they sold their farm and moved into Woodhull, owning for a number of years a hotel there. Here they spent the most of the time since, until two years (ago???) they disposed of their property and made their home among their children. Mrs. Paden was a woman of much natural ability as a writer and possessed more than ordinary business capacity for one of her years, attending to all the business herselfup to the last year of her life. She had a kind heart, and no one in real need who applies to her failed to receive help if it was in her power to give it.

her life has been a very busy and useful one, covering four score years and ten. He children and grandchildren will retain in their hearts many lovingmemories of her kindness to them and theirs, and they will do well to imitate her good qualities, for she had many worthy of imitation.

They had the following children:

  F i Marilla Paden
  M ii David Joseph Paden
  M iii James Paden
  F iv Mary A. Paden.
  F v Maria or Mariah J. Paden
  M vi Albert F. Paden

He was an industrious man, and had a wonderful genius for mechanics and invention. He was a good stone and brick mason, plasterer and carpenter and could make anything out of iron that was neeeded in the way of blacksmithing or repairing of machinery. He was active up to a few months previous to his death, assisting his son in building a house the past summer, his suffering as his end drew near was severe for a few months, until last Thursday morning when release came. He was a member of the M.E. church and requested that his body be brought to Yorktown that his longtime intimate friend, Rev. J.B.

Alexander moved with his parents from York County to Washington County, PA, in about 1788 and was probably living with them when the 1790 census was taken (p. 256, col.1). He is shown in Pike Run Township in Washington County, PA in a tax list for 1793 (DAR, 1955) and in the census for that township for 1800, 1810, 1820 (p856, line 18; p. 83, line 23; p. 239) but not thereafter.

Several Padens were disowned by the Westland Monthly Meeting in Washington Co., PA, in the early 1820's, and several others in 1825, obtained certificates of transfer to the Short Creek Montly Meeting in Jefferson County, OH (Hinshaw, IV,53). All are thought to have been Alexander's children. Alexander was the most active member of the family in Quaker activities and was said to have been an outstanding Quaker preacher and Scholar. (The Pedens of America, rev.ed. p. 530) The material then repeats what Jerry has written. I don't know what the Hinshaw references are - the Bibliography is missing for the most part from this document.
