Hargadon Family

Connecting Hargadons from Around the World

Trying to find the John Hargadon who raised by mother in a suburb of Philadelphia

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 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!
