***** Rev. Charles R. Paddack – The History of Nantucket says: “Finding that the people of Cape Cod had made greater proficiency in the art of whale-catching than themselves, the inhabitants, in 1690, sent thither and employed a man named Ichabod Paddack, to instruct them in the best manner of killing whales and extracting their oil.” Thus commenced the Nantucket history of this family. We can not trace the lines from Charles R. Paddack to Ichabod. The great-grandfather of Charles, however, was Benjamin Paddack, of whom little is known. Joseph Paddack, son of Benjamin, was born in Nantucket about 1757, and died in his ninety-second year, in Center township, Union county, Indiana. He was engaged in fisheries at Nantucket and somewhat in whaling. He married Amy Folger and they had these children, possibly others: Mary (Mrs. Joseph Whippey); Hepzibah, who was three times married, the last union being with one Webb; Phebe, twice married, the last husband being Charles Mitchell; Tristram, father of Charles R.; Eliza died single; Joseph, captain of a whaler for many years, became wealthy and lived and died at Newport, Rhode Island; Alice became the wife of Charles G. Swain, who was a local Methodist preacher, cashier of two prominent banks in Dayton, Ohio, and judge of probate; Reuben was the youngest child. Tristram and Reuben early settled in Union county, Indiana, and passed the most of their lives there, Reuben, however, removing to Henry county and dying there, after a few years’ residence, at an advanced age.
The war of 1812 reduced the people of Nantucket almost to destitution, and many families left the island for the fertile Ohio Valley. Of this number was Joseph Paddack and family, who made their home in Cincinnati. Staying there but a few years, Mr. Paddack came to Union county, Indiana, which remained his home until his death in his ninety-second year; he survived his wife a number of years. Both were lifelong members of the Society of Friends. Tristram Paddack, born in Nantucket, July 7, 1793, followed the fortunes of his father’s family until his marriage, in Cincinnati, June 16, 1816, to Charlotte, daughter of Captain John Palmer, who was a son of Lord Palmer, of England. Commanding a British war vessel, he was defeated by an American ship, left the service and settled in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where Mrs. Paddack was born, March 4, 1797. Her father emigrated to Chenango county, New York, lived there for a time, then in one of the western counties of the state, and from there removed to Cincinnati, where Mrs. Paddack became acquainted with her future husband. The young couple commenced housekeeping in Cincinnati, where Mr. Paddack for some time operated an “ox” sawmill. Captain Palmer and Mr. Paddack soon, however, purchased a gristmill property at Jeffersonville, Indiana, but on account of a flaw in the deed they lost the money invested, and Mr. Paddack returned to Union county, where he purchased the Caleb Wickersham farm, in Center township, where his children, Charles and Ellen, now reside. Mr. Paddack was a birthright Friend, but on his marriage to a Methodist he was disowned by the Quakers. He did not unite with any other sect, but lived by himself in accordance with the high standard of morality and purity inculcated by the Friends and was well known for his blameless life. He was once elected justice of the peace, but paid his fine rather than serve. From the time of its purchase until his death, November 4, 1870, in his eighty-fourth year, he resided on his farm, and now lies peacefully at rest in the Friends’ burying ground at Salem. His wife survived him nineteen years, dying in 1889, and was buried at the side of her husband. She was converted in early life and was for over seventy-five years a valued member of the Methodist church. To illustrate her sterling character we will state that after losing the mill property at Jeffersonville, her father removed to Arkansas, and became very wealthy and an extensive slave-owner. From her opposition to slavery she could not consent to be enriched by its profits, and in consequence received but a small part of her portion of her father’s estate. To this worthy couple were born these children: The three eldest, Lydia, George and John, died in infancy; George (2d), Mary, Phebe H. and Joanna (Mrs. Samuel L. Royalty) all are now dead. Joseph H. lives near the old home in Center township; Sarah M. married first, Job Harris, an elder in the Friends Society; secondly, Elisha Bracey, and lives in Randolph county; Ellen resides on the homestead farm; and Charles R. and Benjamin F. are now residents of Randolph county.
Charles Rollin Paddack was born on the Center township homestead, in Union county, October 22, 1839. His early life was passed on the farm, assisting in the many duties connected therewith, and his first educational acquisitions were obtained by diligent study at the fireside of the old-fashioned log house that was his home. He prepared for college at the Salem public school, and entered Hartsville (Indiana) College in 1862 and had its advantages for a time, but on May 24, 1864, he was mustered into the United States service as a member of Company E, One Hundred and Thirty-fourth Regiment of Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and with it was assigned to the First Brigade, First Division, Twentieth Army Corps of the Army of the Cumberland. This regiment had a severe baptism of blood in its by no means long period of service, suffering more severely than many older organizations with longer terms of service. On August 20, 1864, while in camp with his regiment near Nashville, Tennessee, a strange accident came near fracturing his spinal column. He was not only incapacitated from military service at that time, but at this day – thirty-five years later – he suffers intensely from its effects and is compelled to constantly have the support of crutches. Mustered out of served on September 2, 1864, with his regiment, he returned to his home, and for nearly a year was unfitted by his injury for any business, much of the time being confined to his bed. He then taught school for a few years – as long as his health admitted.
Mr. Paddack has had a peculiar religious experience. He says he was “converted” at the age of five years and from that time had a clear call to preach. When a mere child his mother asked him what he was going to do in life, and his answer was: “Stand up and tell the people.” This call has always been heard by him, clear, strong and persistent. While in attendance at Hartsville College his religious experience was renewed. He joined the United Brethren church and commenced to preach. After relinquishing teaching, as before stated, he was “licensed,” in August, 1873, by the White River annual conference, and was ordained an elder in 1878. He has filled various charges in Indiana, Ohio and Illinois, working as a regular itinerant and also as an evangelist.
In politics Mr. Paddack was long a Republican. He voted for Grant for president, under protest, however, on account of prohibition. He voted the first prohibition ticket cast in Union county and organized and was made president of the first Prohibition county convention, and from that time he has been firm in his allegiance to prohibition. A man of strong and independent thought, he never blindly follows the teachings of any one, but puts all things to the test of reason enlightened by the grace of God. He has always been opposed to secret societies and for some years voted the “American” or anti-secret society ticket. He is a man who votes for men, not partisans, in all local issues, and may be styled an independent. In spite of his prohibition tendencies he was once elected justice of the peace by his Republican friends. He has ever been a diligent reader of the best literature and a close, logical reasoner.
Mr. Paddack married first, November 25, 1866, Miss Mary B. McCreary, daughter of John and Mary T. (Williams) McCreary, who was born in Center township. She died March 10, 1895. Their children were: Markwood, Otterbein and Lawrence Dillon, the last named dying in infancy. Mr. Paddack married secondly, on March 27, 1898, Cassandra Elina Lee, daughter of Isaac K. and Anna C. (Glidewell) Lee, a native of Salt Creek township, Franklin county.
Mr. Paddack has done extensive and valuable work in his religious activity, and many attribute their awakening to religious life to his earnest labors. It is the wish of many that he may be spared for long years of Christian usefulness.
