Debbie...your last name is Martin? Does this
mean that Julia Sophia Cadd Charles F.
Martin also had sons? I had traced a "Myrtle
Martin" who married "Shay", but could not find a "Shay" descendant!
Although this is not a direct Cadd line for
my husband's ancestry (He descends from Thomas Cadd, John Ann Bedford Cadd's OTHER
SON) through Richard Bedford Cadd, David
Evans Cadd.) I have long been interested in
this family. Joseph Sophia Cadd had 8
children...2 girls, Julia Sophia who m.Martin,and probably an "Elizabeth" who died
very young about 1858. There were 6 sons,
Adolphus Henry b.1856 South Australia, Heber
Edward b.1857 aboard the ship "Lucas" enroute
to San Pedro from Sydney Aust, William b.1860
San Bernardino, James Frederick b.1864 San
Bernardino, John Joseph Jr. b.abt.1866 San
Bernardino, and Jesse Andrew b.July 8,1868
in San Bernardino. All six sons, as well as
"Elizabeth", are in the San Bernardino
Cemetery along with their parents..but I have
not yet located a single CADD who is a des-
cendant of any of these boys. James F. and
Jesse Andrew died single of natural causes...
but could find no record of the other four.
I probably have other information you would
be interested in...such as several genera-
tions of Cadds beyond Joseph Sophia. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org..or
