Photo is of my brother Kevin (left) and I in front of Hargadon Bros. pub in Sligo.My father Michael was born January 9, 1888 in the Parish of Sligo. Of the family, Charlie stayed on the farm while Tom and James came over to America about the same time, 1917, and settled in California. My father and brother Jack settled in Montreal.All now deceased. Have made contact with several Hargadons however our blood line is somewhat foggy in most instances. Keep in contact with Patrick and Phyllis Hargadon of Balinamona, Sligo .

Retired in 1996, involved in sailing, golfing and in the winter, skiing.Very involved in my church, St.Patricks Basilica. Travel a good deal. Divorced many years however the family still get together regularly. Three children, two boys each with 1 child and a daughter expecting her fifth. Carrying on the good Catholic tradition! Have made contact with several Hargadons, and in fact just returned from a trip to Washington where I visited another Hargadon. Intend to visit Ireland again this year, however few Hargadons left in Sligo. Would do my best to attend another Hargadon gathering, was unable to do so for the last one.

I have noticed that as well. It is one of the reasons why I am grateful for Steve and the time he has devoted to this research. With my father and his sister both being gone, this is the connection I have with the family history. I love the picture you have up! I have one very similar on my kitchen counter from our trip to Sligo ... funny how we all find "Hargadon Brothers" it was such an intimate place to visit! I also noticed the picture of Bernard Joseph Hargadon in the photo gallery on here and see commonalities ... something in the eyes! Have a great Easter!
