Barbara Wilson: My GG Grandfather was Robert McFadden. "In 1839 Robert McFadden and his brothers James, Thomas and William came out from Armagh, Ireland on a sailing vessel. Robert was just sixteen years of age and was a linen weaver. On the way over, William drowned.
Robert, James and Thomas all settled in Kent County, Ontario, Canada. Robert farmed after arriving in the county. He married Ann J.Curry. Born to these parents were six sons and two daughters: Thomas, Andrew, William, Arthur, Joseph, Walter, Sarah and Lena.
Both Ann J.Curry and her husband Robert were of the Presbyterian Faith. Robert was a member of the Orange Lodge. They had an adopted daughter Rachel Jacklin who married Thomas Arnold of Dresden, Ontario.
Robert died in Chatham Township in 1887, age 64 years. His wife was killed by being thrown from a vehicle in 1892, age 64 yrs. She is buried in the Dresden Cemetery."
We are going to Ireland in late September and planning to visit Armagh. Any further information would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
Shelley McFadden James

I've joined Ancestry.ca recently. They hint that Robert's father was James McFadden. This makes sense because he died in Kent County, Ontario, 23 Feb 1852.

20 years ago a lady named Leota Dixon said she had a book on McFaddens from Tanderagee and she appeared to have searched Irish church records. She left message on Geneaolgy.com. She named the patriarch Stringer b before 1777. She said Robert went to Canada with brother Stringer( though they may be sons of the patriarch.) She claimed son James m. Isabelle Magowan b 1831 and his children were Hugh, Robert, Alex, Stringer and more. Leota's e-mail address no longer works. Another lady agrees with the now on-line civil records that Hugh was the father of James. She does not find Stringer among the children, but both of James' wives named a child Hugh. Does anyone have any information on this family or on Leota and her book? The recent lady is looking for more information on MyHeritage. A posting there for free for James and Isabella (Magowan) should enable people to contact her.
