Margaret “Maggie” MADDEN is a daughter of Ellen DOHERTY and Edward “Ned” Madden. She was baptized 27 Apr 1841in Ireland at Couraganeen RC Chapel, Shanballynahagh townland, Bourney Parish, Roscrea Poor Law Union, Co Tipperary. John DOHERTY & Judy DOHERTY were sponsors. She left Ireland about 1865, 1870 Census?

Thomas EGAN was born in Ireland in May 1852, I don’t know who his parents were. He left Ireland about 1860 and the June 1870 census of Grosse Pointe, Wayne County MI has a Thomas EGAN 19 year old (b 1851) in Ireland working as a Laborer. On 13 March 1875 Thomas EGAN Papers of Naturalization were processed by the Criminal Court of Washtenaw County, Michigan.

On 15 Jan 1877, Margaret “Maggie” MADDEN married Thomas EGAN in Jackson, Mich. Both were from Ireland and Maggie was 26 (B 1851), Thomas was 29 (B 1848) and a Railroadman. Witnesses were Anna MADDEN (her sister) and John Collins. The Catholic Priest was Theophilus Buyse, apparently the same priest her sister had 16 July 1872 marriage of Ellen MADDEN to John E. DIGNAM.

The 12 Jun 1880 census has them at 150 18th St, Chicago IL. Thomas EGAN is 35, a laborer and was born in Ireland. His wife, Maggie is 35 (1845) Married Keeping House B Ireland as were parents. No children are indicated.

The Children of Margaret “Maggie” MADDEN & Thomas EGAN
The 6 June 1900 census says Maggie gave birth to 4 living children but they were not listed in the household.
The 22 April 1910 census says Maggie gave birth to 3 children, none were living.

I have only found 1 birth certificate that was spelled “Maden” and the child had not been named; he was born 19 Jan 1881 at 150 W. 18th Chicago. It states “1st birth of mother” and finally named Edward EGAN. On 28 June 1881, Edward Egan died at 5 months old. On 30 June he was buried at Calvary Cemetery Evanston, IL in Lot 133 purchased by Thomas EGAN, Block 35, Section V. Who and where are the other children?
