Barbara Haga Padgett


Padgett, Barbara E (after)

Barbara Elizabeth Haga was born in Virginia in 1831 to David and Elizabeth Haga. In 1850 she was living with the family of Jacob Turner in Bono, Lawrence, Indiana.  She married Joseph F. Padgett on March 26, 1854 in Orange County, Indiana.  They were living in Musselfork Township by 1870 and were the parents of nine children; Mary Elizabeth, Margaret Jane, Sarah Catherine, Lazarus Martin, Joel David, Harriett "Hattie Belle", Emily Cordelia, John Thomas, James Oliver and George William. Barbara died September 18, 1879 at the age of 48 years, 2 months and 18 days.  She is buried in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery north of Keytesville. Their oldest daughter, Mary E., born in 1855,  died at the age of 27 years in 1882 and is buried next to her mother. After Barbara's death, Joseph moved to Kansas where he died in 1909.  All of their children except Sarah moved to western states.
