I know the Madden's children in the 1900's seem the same.The more I read your notes the more I know we are related.In 1939-1945 4 Madden children lived with their grandparents in Jamaica Plains , Mass. In the summer we went to Framingham, in the country for a week or 2. One year my sister Joan(Johanna after my grandmother) got a piece of wire in her leg.My Grandmother was 68 or more and Aunt Nellie(Helen went with us to my UNCLE AND AUNTS. My James was born around1907.My grandfather John J died in Jamaica Plains when I was 4or 5yrs,all 4 of Billy M Madden children went into a Catholic home for a while. The last time we went to Framingham he was not with us. It seems like A Bill and Mame took us there.Just maybe this will click a memory to someone.
