Daniel Padrick, late an aged and honored resident of Sugar Creek Township, was born in Currituck County, North Carolina, November 23, 1798.  He was the only child born to the marriage of  Daniel and Phebe (Sawyer) Padrick.  He was reared in his native county, working upon a farm and was married there December 31, 1818, to  Margaret Casey, daughter of  Dempsey and Elizabeth Casey.  In 1834, he and his wife moved to the State of Illinois, but a year later they returned to Shelby County, and located in Moral Township.  Shortly afterward they removed to Sugar Creek Township and settled on the farm now owned and occupied by  William G. Weaver.  There Mrs. Margaret Padrick died September 20, 1843.  That marriage resulted in the birth of fourteen children; but two of these fourteen children are still living.  On the 9th day of September 1850, Mr. Padrick was married to  Rachael Ann Henricks, a native of Rush County, this State, born October 15, 1830, and daughter of  Jacob and Phebe (Cougar) Henricks.  This latter marriage has resulted in the birth of six children, as follows:  James M., born August 26, 1851;  Lewis C., born March 12, 1853;  Jacob V., born February 14, 1855;  Mary A., born May 18, 1857;  Laura A., born October 2, 1859, died August 3, 1860, and  Sarah A., born August 12, 1861, died July 4, 1867.  In the fall of 1868, Mr. and Mrs. Padrick removed to Shelbyville, but in March, 1870, they returned to Sugar Creek Township, and settled upon the farm the latter now occupies.  Mr. Padrick was a member of the Baptist church, the F. & A.M. Lodge, and a Democrat in politics.  He died May 27, 1887.  Mrs. Padrick is also a member of the Baptist church.  She has a good farm, and a comfortable home, where she resides in a quiet happy way.  Submitted by Jean Schroeder
