Other Madden Families

Mary (  ) Madden  living in  Ellice, Perth, Ontario in 1861

Mary bn 1795 Ireland  - Although it is not stated that Mary is John’s mother, she was living with the family in Canada in 1861.  The relationship of Jeremiah is also unknown at this point.  He is in the same area as Mary and John, so it seems likely that they are related if not brothers.  We know that James is the son of Mary.  She is living with him in 1871 and the relationship is stated.  There are there is a James Madden living in Ellice, Perth, Ontario in 1848[1]  In 1850 There is also a Jeremiah.[2]  I believe these are the sons and not a possible father.  James is already 30 in 1848 and Jeremiah would be 26 and has three children by 1850.

  1. James Madden bn abt 1818 Ireland  m. 1847 Elleanor bn abt 1818 Ireland – Living with James and Elleanor in 1861 is John McDermott age 18.  He is listed as family so perhaps a son of Elleanor by a previous marriage or a nephew?[3]  In 1871 is mother Mary and wife Ellen are in the household.
