Prior to Spring Break, I was exploring the connections to the Paderas and Tudury families in New Orleans. There was another connection I did not have time to post before the trip. Back in February 2015, I wrote about my wife's 3rd-great-grandfather, Joseph Francois Halter. Joseph served in Company F of the Orleans Fire Regiment, Confederate Army during the Civil War. Also serving in the same company was Theodore Paderas, older brother of Louisa Paderas (first wife of Joseph Halter's uncle Joseph) and Dorothea Paderas Tudury.
Theodore appears in the 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910 and 1920 US Census entries. I also found a record for him in the Louisiana Wills and Probate Records on Ancestry indicating that he died on 1 January 1922 in New Orleans. Theodore immigrated to the US between 1840 and 1843. It looks like he was naturalized on 15 June 1867.
He operated a hardware and stove store at 294 Old Levee Street, New Orleans, and appears in several newspaper entries over the years.
