Okay, Here's My Fadden line...

As told to my mother by my g-grandmother, Helene Fadden Thompson.

Mr and Mrs. Dominick Fadden, natives of Mayo Ireland, come to Olyphant, PA. They have in or about 10 children. Mrs. Fadden was Mary A Fadden who died at 34.

This is exactly how it's written out on the sheet of paper:

Mr. and Mrs. James Feeney of Jermyn
March 18, 1868 Annie Feener of Jermyn is daughter
1860-1933 M. F. Fadden (Scranton)
James Fadden
Edward J. Fadden (Philadelphia)
Mrs. Ellen Murphy (Olyphant)
Mr. and Mrs James Feeney of Jermyn
Helene Fadden Thompson (My g-grandmother)
Mrs. Stanley Coar
Mrs. Gerwin D. Adair
Gerald Fadden
Rev. Father Martin of St. Mary's Catholic Church at Archibald.

Mind you, I have this sheet of yellowed looseleaf that has doodles and cross-outs and all sorts of mess on it. My grandmother later said AUSTIN Fadden was the g-g-grandfather, not Dominick, but I can't tell who's right as they are both old. I was told that the two Fadden brothers came over and worked in the mines, eventually bringing over the two O'Malley sisters that were their wives.

Written to one side are the words "also grandchildren Eleanor, Marion, Nancy Clark. Robert
Bridget (March 18, 1864)
Anthony (August 1866)
Sarah Feeney (1872-1875
Patrick (Aug 1 1873)
John Thomas (April 1875-1876)

On the back is written Helene Fadden and Edward B. Thompson married Norwood PA Sept. 9 1925. They had
Edward B. Thompson
Francis Ann (my grandmother)
Gerald B.
Mary Ellen

Hope someone can help some of this mess.
