Notes

  • It is not clear how this James Padgett is related to the Padgett clanin Arkansas County, who all otherwise appear to derive from thePadgett family of Cleveland County, North Carolina, some of whom movedto Arkansas with or near the same time as the McSwain pioneers.Though his age reported in the 1910 census makes his birth about 1884,the 1900 enumeration of what appears to be the same James Padgettreports his birth as 1881.  His registrations report his birth date as24 June 1882, which I take to be correct.  The Social Security DeathIndex confirms this as James' birth date.
