Doug,

It's great to hear from another descendant of the Dunmacmay HADDENS. Your cousin Rob Dickinson ("Octagon") will fill you in on the immediate family connections back to your and his grandfather's generations.

William HADDEN of Dunmacmay & Emily WATSON of Lismulladown married June 4, 1880 at Minterburn Presbyterian Church near Caledon, Aghaloo parish, in County Tyrone, Ireland. Their children were:

1. Frances "Fanny" HADDEN - born 1882
2. John HADDEN - born 1883
3. William James HADDEN - born 1887
4. Alfred HADDEN - born 1888
5. Walter HADDEN - born 1893
6. Hans HADDEN - born 1897

------------------------------------------------------------

All 6 children appear with their parents in the 1901 census; and in the 1911 census, Emily said that she was the mother of 6 children, with all 6 living.

1901 Census of Co. Tyrone - Dunmacmay, Aghaloo parish:

William Hadden - Presbyterian - Read & write - 57 - Farmer - born Collooney, Co. Sligo
Emily - wife - R & W - Presbyt. - 47 - born Co. Tyrone
Fanny - daughter - 19 - Farmer's daughter - Co. Tyrone
John - son - 17 - Farmer's son - Co. Tyrone
Wm. James - son - 15 - Scholar - Co. Tyrone
Alfred - son - 13 - R & W - Scholar - Co. Tyrone
Walter - son - 8 - read only - Scholar - Co. Tyrone
Hanse - son - 4 - cannot read - Co. Tyrone

------------------------------------------------------------

William Hadden died Jan. 22, 1921, age 77, and his wife Emily died Jan. 26, 1923, age 70. They are buried in Minterburn Presbyterian cemetery, as are William's parents and most of his siblings.

William's parents were James Hadden & Margaret Stewart/McMasters of Dunmacmay, who lived for a time in County Sligo where several of their children were born -- including William in 1844 (according to Co. Sligo Methodist baptism records).

The probate of James Hadden's will cites his death date as January 9, 1874, and his death date is in civil registrations (at age 64), as well as on the family tombstone at Minterburn. The tall marker in Minterburn Presbyterian Church cemetery has a dozen family members in its inscription.
