Hello Jordan, nice to hear from you. Mary Martha McFadden was special to the Hiles; recall her sister, Sarah Jane was MM's sister. When SJ died in 1897, and Jacob Franklin died in 1899, the youngest eight were wards of the court, under Brother Perry Houston Hiles. MM took sister Rosette, Rose or Rosy, into her home and raised and educated her. Rose married Edward Sweeter and lived in Iowa where my Fa & Mo met a married. (New), last week: I found a soft leather covered scrap book from Chicago World's Fair which she bought for me and autographed it, as signed " to DAH from his great aunt Rose Hiles Sweetser and more. dated Dec (I think) 23_1933. I guess that is a pretty solid connection.
Where do you live? would you prefer conversation over regular email; I just received your message today, 16 Mar 2016, and I believe you sent it 2 Mar '16.
I am willing to make copies and share what I know about the McFaddens also.
thanks for responding. david
