Thayer's Note:

a Col. Paddock's birthplace is from his AOG obituary; his middle name is from Heitman's Historical Register and Dictionary of the United States Army.

From History of Bureau County, Illinois (H. C. Bradsby, ed., Chicago, 1885), p611‑612, it is reasonable to infer that Col. Paddock was a grandson of another George Hussey Paddock, whose son Stephen Gorham Paddock was the father of Lt. Indicates a West Point graduate and gives his Class.J. V. S. Paddock; the two West Pointers must have been first cousins.
