V. Padrick, a promising young farmer of Sugar Creek Township, was born in
that township, February 14, 1855. He was the son of Daniel
and Rachel A. (Henricks) Padrick, a history of whom is given
above. He was reared upon the farm and on the 10th day of January, 1877,
he was married to Maria Belton, a native of Moral Township, this
county, born December 17, 1854, and daughter of Robert and Caroline
(Holden) Belton, native of North Carolina and Indiana, respectively.
After their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Padrick settled upon a farm in Johnson
County, but a few months later, they came to Shelby County and settled upon the
old homestead of the former, where they have since resided. They are the
parents of two children: Carrie, born September 4, 1877, and May,
born September 7, 1885, both living. Mr. Padrick and wife are members of
the Baptist Church. In politics the former is a Democrat.
