No, my father was born in Boston. I believe his father and mother came over from Ireland. I will ask my Aunt Madeleine (Thomas Jefferson Hargadon, Jr.'s wife). She is still alive and knows many of my father's older relatives. I will let you know what I find out.
I am a brother of Brian, Oliver and John. You can contact Brian who has done a considerable amount of research on our branch of the Hargadon's. Brian has been in contact with you on numerous occassions over the last number of years. You rang my home some years ago but I was away at the time. you spoke to my so Gary at the time.
My g gandfather Bernard Hargadon from Ballisodare Sligo had a brother John J b 1867 who emigrated to USA (NJ) in 1889 and settled in Newark, NJ and had 4 children one was Bernard born in 1898. Any possible connection?
Picture on P 14 of your 94 pages is an outline of my family. Tony Hargadon Margaret Parker, uncles & aunts. My father Charles Joseph died at 53 yrs old is there. My mother is missing. I will get this updated.
This is all coming together. If that is the twin that my great- grand father (and grandfather) lived in then it turns out that you struck gold in the Hargadon ancestry search. Is John your great-great-granfather?
Thanks Steve for the welcome and your wonderful site. I haven't been to Sligo yet but my mom and Aunt visited way back in the late 70's and had no luck locating family. Not sure why since I know there were siblings who stayed in Ireland in the prior generation. Will definitely contact you if and when I have a visit to Sligo planned.
