Ellen D. Paden1,2

ID#1229, b. June 1846
Father: John Paden
Mother: Catharine Farmsworth

Birth date: June 1846.3 It has also been suggested that she was born about 1848.4
Birth place: Ohio.5 The 1900 federal census recorded Ellen's birthplace as West Virginia, which would still have been part of Virginia at the time of her birth. I have my doubts as she was in her fourth marriage at the time and it's possible that her husband may have been the informant. It seems more likely that the earlier censuses that all show Ohio as her birthplace are the accurate reports.3

Ellen married David F. Core on 20 December 1868 in Tyler County, West Virginia.6,1

After her first husband died, her second marriage was to Bazel R. Hamer on 25 December 1881 in Ritchie County, West Virginia. The ceremony was performed by James A. Hogue.7

Ellen's third marriage was to John Thompson on 1 February 1895 in Calhoun County, West Virginia. Although his first wife has not yet been identified, John was reportedly a widower.8

After being widowed for the third time, Ellen's fourth marriage was to Alfred Berry, son of Robert Berry and E. (unknown), on 16 August 1898 in Calhoun County, West Virginia.9
