Compiled and Edited by Michael R. Reilly

Last Revised 11/25/2008

Descendants of Edward McCartan

 

Generation No. 1

1. EDWARD1 MCCARTAN was born Nov 1826 in Ireland, and died 01 Nov 1900 in Washington County, Wisconsin. He married MARY MELVILLE Abt. 1853, daughter of PETER MELVILLE and EMELIA BRUCE. She was born 23 Feb 1835 in Scotland.

Notes for EDWARD MCCARTAN:

Edward McCartan, Elected Town Justice of Peace, Lisbon

Source: Waukesha Plaindealer (Waukesha, Wis.) April 27, 1869 page 3

1880 Census - James, John, and Mary not with family.

"The divorce case of EDWARD and MARY MCCARTEN which appears on the

circuit court calendar, may as well be taken off. Just before the session of the court began it was found that the parties had become reconciled and were living together again in connubial bliss".

Source: Waukesha Freeman (Waukesha, Wis.) May 24, 1883

Editor Note: Perhaps after bearing 11 children the romance had faded slightly.

In 1900 Most of the family has moved(?) to the town of Richfield in Washington County. Edward and wife Mary are living in separate places; Edward with his daughter Mary, and Mary, Sr. is living by herself but only several houses away. Apparently the divorce reconcilliation didn't last long.

Mike,

Great work on the SLAHS website. I was really surprised to do a search on my grandfather and find your website. My mom really enjoyed it, too.

She did however point out one error. Mary McCartan, who was married to Edward McCartan (my great, great, great?? grandfather) was actually named Mary Melville, which I believe is the same Mary Melville you have listed in the Melville genealogy:

Children of PETER MELVILLE and EMELIA BRUCE are:

i. JANET2 MELVILLE (Source: LDS familysearch.org.), b. May 24, 1831.

2. ii. ALEXANDER MELVILLE, b. January 28, 1834, Kilspindie, Perthshire, Scotland; d. December 09, 1906.

iii. MARY MELVILLE, b. February 23, 1835 (Source: LDS familysearch.org.).
