Does anyone know who the John M. Paden was who lived in DeKalb Co., GA, and married Louisa (possibly Laura) Jane Matthews there on 23 Feb 1869? Was he related to James M. and Thomas N. Paden, also of DeKalb Co.? I cannot locate John and Louisa in the 1860 census, but they appear in the 1880 census living in the Stone Mountain district. John was 39, "Lura J." was 29, and they had a daughter Jessie E., who was 9. John's parents were both born in SC, but he was born in GA, and in 1880, he was a clerk in a dry goods store.
