McFadden / Sharkey

Hello and thanks for allowing me to join the group.  I am seeking help in locating the Townland of my GG Grandfather James McFadden.  According to US records, he was born abt 1825.  He sailed from Derry in late March 1847 and arrived in Philadelphia, PA in April 1847 on the ship Susan E. Howell..  There were 11 McFaddens on the ship and I believe James was with his brother John and sister Margery. He married Sophia Sharkey, who was on the same ship, in 1853 and they resided in Philadelphia until their deaths in 1899 & 1903.  As per naming of their children, I believe James' father was also named James and mother may have been Sarah?

Thanks so much in advance for any potential feedback.

Sincerely

Denny McFadden

West Chester, PA.
