Connecting Hargadons from Around the World
My mother, Margaret Feeney (1907-1995) was the daughter of Joseph Feeney (1881-1913) and Ellen Hargadon who died 4/10/44.
Upon the death of her father Joseph in 1913 Margaret was placed with and raised by an uncle John Hargadon who I am trying to identify. I think they lived in Wayne PA. He was a lovable man whom my mother spoke very highly of. My mother had a wonderful way about her which I am sure came through from this wonderful man.
Any help in placing this John Hargadon would be appreciated.
I was born in 1934 and have been in Pittsburgh since the 1970s, after growing up in Narberth PA
I can help! :) That was my great-grandfather. I've actually been to the house in Wayne, and I found his grave outside of Philadelphia. Margaret and her sister Mary both were raised by John, and Mary (Maguire) came to a reunion I held in the year 2000.
John and and Ellen were raised on a farm in Ireland outside of Sligo, and from clues we got at the reunion, I finally found that farmhouse last year, and found living relatives. I am attaching the full story here.
You and I are distant cousins!
