Are you sure it's Rupert and not Robert? I only have a bit of information but I have this. Robert McFadden and his brothers, James, Thomas and William came out from Armagh, Ireland. Robert was just 16 yrs of age and was a linen weaver in Ireland. On the way over William drowned. Robert, James and Thomas all settled in the county of Kent. Robert farmed after arriving in the new country. He married Ann J. Curry. Born to these were 6 sons and 2 daughters: Thomas, Andrew, William, Arthur, Joseph, Walter, Sarah and Lena. Both Ann J Curry and her husband Robert were of the Presbyterian Faith. Robert was a member of the Orange Lodge. They had an adopted daughter Rachel Jacklin married to Thomas Arnold of Dresden. Robert died in Chatham Township in 1887 age 64 yrs. His wife was killed by being thrown from a vehicle in 1892, age 64 yrs. She is buried in Dresden Cemetary.
