Stephen MADDEN brought wife Hannorah/Honnorah HURLEY and kids -- Julia, Timothy and John -- to America from Bandon, Parish of Kilbrogan, County Cork, Ireland about 1832. Daughter Ellen was born here in 1834. Julia m Peter DONOHUE in 1850; John m Mary SULLIVAN in 1853 and Ellen m Robert WHITTERS (of Enniskillen, Farmanagh, Ireland) in 1853 -- all in Taunton, Bristol County. Robert d in 1855, leaving wife and tiny son Edward. The entire MADDEN family relocated to Mendota, LaSalle Co., IL before 1860.
It is unlikely MADDENS came to U.S. alone. Is Barney MADDEN of Taunton related? Anyone researching this MADDEN line? Any help appreciated and all queries answered. Thanks a bunch. Bobby Dobbins Title in Orange, CA.
