      PADGET (PADGETT), JOHN. Among the early colonists from Frederick
      County, Maryland who settled in the Hope community near Wachovia,
      North Carolina were John Padget, Sr. (born 1723), John Padget,
      Jr. (born 1763), and Thomas Padget (born 1752). They were
      residents there between 1775 and 1783 (Ref: ALF IV-1925). John
      Padget (Padgett) was born in Charles County, Maryland on
      September 9, 1723, and later lived in Frederick County. He
      married (1) Elizabeth Cawood, and (2) Mary Thrasher (1734-1787).
      Their known children, all born in Maryland, were: Mary Padgett
      (born June 21, 1746, and married Benjamin Chitty); Elizabeth
      Padgett (married James Layton); Thomas Padgett (born in 1752);
      John Padgett, Jr. (born April 7, 1768); Maria Padgett (born March
      2, 1771, and married Elias Lashmit or Delashmutt); and, Lydia
      Padgett (born May 5, 1773). In the spring of 1775 they moved to
      Wachovia, North Carolina. John died at Hope in (now) Forsyth
      County, North Carolina, on June 2, 1811 (Ref: GER-128, 129)
