The George W. Booker and Mary (Polly) Padgett Family

(Son of David Booker and Theodosha Smith)

George W. (presumed to be William) Booker was the oldest son of David Booker and Theodosha Smith. The Bennett Genealogy, sent to me by Ralph Woodward of Carlisle, Indiana, states that George W. Booker was born on 31 January 1793 in Virginia, and died in Jefferson Township, Sullivan Co., Indiana on 7 [sic] September 1871. George is buried in the Indian Prairie Cemetery. Engraved on his gravestone are two other names and their dates of death. They are his wife’s and youngest daughter’s. I mention this only because I believe that the quotation of “80 years, 7 months and 8 days after George’s date of death is incorrect. The 1850 Census states George’s age as 56, the 1860 Census – 65, and the 1870 Census – 77. Since George died 9 September 1871 (according to two newspaper obituaries), his tombstone should read age 78. My guess is that when George W. Booker’s wife, Mary (Polly) died in 1895, George’s original stone was replaced by a newer one giving an incorrect age. Also, the Sullivan Democrat on July 19, 1871, listed all old citizens of the county over 70 years of age. In Haddon Twp., George Booker is listed as 78 years old; his brother, Jacob Booker is listed as 72.

George W. Booker married Mary (nicknamed Polly) Padgett most likely in 1821 in Sullivan Co., Indiana, their first child born in September of 1822. As of yet, there is no positive proof as to who might be the parents of Polly. I did find on the 1850 Census just above the George W. Booker family, a Lewis Padgett, age 30, listed with the rest of his family. Listed in Lewis’s family is a Henry Padgett, age 81, born in Virginia. Possibly this man is Polly’s father. Henry Padgett is buried next to his wife, Rachael, at the Pleasantville Cemetery in Sullivan Co., Indiana. His gravestone reads “died October 13, 1861, lived 88 years.” Rachael’s gravestone inscription reads “died March 10, 1836, age 55 years.”

On 21 March 1831 George bought 80 acres in Haddon Township, Section 7, East 1/2, NE 1/4. George and Polly had five children between 1822 and 1830 in Sullivan County and are listed on the 1830 Census, page 348, in the same county under George “Bokker.” Incidentally, all the Bookers listed on the 1830 Census of Sullivan Co., Indiana are found on the pages 340, 348, 352, 354, and 388 twice.

George and Polly were charter members of the First Missionary Baptist Church in southern Sullivan County. Henry Padgett was also a charter member. The church was established in the Indian Prairie neighborhood in 1832, but was destroyed by fire in 1875 (the present building was immediately erected and was dedicated in February 1876).

According to the Bennett Genealogy, Mary (Polly) Padgett Booker was born in Kentucky on 1 January 1801. She died 6 March 1895 in Sullivan County Indiana; on her gravestone (the same as George’s) is engraved “94 years, 2 months, 5 days.”

From the Sullivan Union, Wednesday, 13 September 1871: -Pleasantville Items-George Booker died last Saturday at a good old age.

From the Sullivan Democrat, Wednesday, 20 September 1871: -Died, on Saturday, the 9th inst., Mr. George Booker

By researching all Census’s between 1850 and 1870, all cemetery inscriptions, marriage records and death records in Sullivan County from 1850 to 1920, I have accumulated enough evidence to reconstruct George and Polly Booker’s family. Thanks again to Ralph Woodward who sent me a copy of Sullivan County Warranty Deed 70, pages 514-518, dated 17 July 1896, I have “fleshed” out George and Polly’s complete family. The children listed in the deed were:

The Delilah Booker and Charles T. Bennett Family

Source for the following information on the Bennett family comes from “The Bennett Genealogy” compiled by a Headley (a Bennett descendant) in Kansas, first name unknown. The manuscript is in the possession of the Sullivan County Historical Society of Sullivan County, Indiana.

Delilah Booker married Charles T. Bennett on 23 May 1842 in Carlisle, Sullivan County, Indiana. Charles was the son of Wingrove Bennett, born in Virginia, and a Miss Carrico (first name and birthplace unknown). Charles was born near Carlisle, Indiana on 20 April 1823, and was a Civil War veteran. He died on 12 November 1906 near Carlisle, age 83 years, 6 months, and 22 days. According to Bennett descendant, Don Wilson, Delilah Booker Bennett was living with her daughter, Martha Plummer, when she died in 1910. Any pictures of Delilah or Charles Bennett could possibly be found in the Plummer Family of Sullivan County, Indiana. Both Charles and Delilah are interred in the Trimble Cemetery. Their children are as follows:

Elizabeth Bennett b. 18/3/1843 Carlisle, IN, d. 18/3/1843 Carlisle, IN. Bur. Trimble Cemetery

Mary A. Bennett

Mary A. Bennett, daughter of Delilah Booker and Charles T. Bennett, married twice, and had no children by either marriage. Her first marriage was to Ranson Ashbrook, who was born 28 February 1832. Ranson died 4 October 1885 and was interred in the Trimble Cemetery in Carlisle, Indiana. Mary then married Charles Shake. Nothing is known of Charles’death, but some claim that Charles Shake was the first husband of Mary A. Bennett. Although her estate was settled as Shake, apparently Ranson Ashbrook was the first husband as Mary is buried at the side of Ranson Ashbrook in the Bennett Family Plot in Trimble Cemetery.
