I am new to Ireland Reaching Out and just starting my search.

My great-great Grandfather James Madden was from Clontuskert Galway.

He was born in 1816 abd died in Milford MA USA in 1870.  His parents were John Madden and Ann Curley (Curey).

James married Margaret Walsh. They had several children-I know of Patrick (my great grandfather born 1844, James born 1859 and Katie born 1857).

Any additional information is appreciate.

  • Hi, my g,g,g,g grandmother was called Margarita Maddens from Clontuskert. I wonder if they were related? I know she married a Patricius Lyons and had a child(ren) called Catherine (Kitty) Lyons in 1883 who married a Lawrence Grogan before they then moved to my hometown of Wigan in Lancashire England. Thry went onto have 4 children.

  • Hi Janetta

    I have not been able to locate a lot of info on the Maddesn in Clontuskert. I know that a lot of Maddens came to America and settled in Milford Massachusetts in the 1850s. 

    Maybe there us some relationship
