It certainly is interesting that so many immigrant families split up,
moved and were lost to each other, but it does seem common.
In my family, DUDGEON, the story is that there were two brothers, one
went to NYC, the other to Philadelphia. They were never in contact
again. There was no proof that the "Philadelphia brother" existed.
There was also a conflict in the family stories as to whether James
DUDGEON was born in NYC or Ireland.
This was settled by IGI listings showing James DUDGEON and Eliza ANDERSON
having two sons born in NYC and baptized at All Saints Church (ca. 1846,
1847). Their names were James and Thomas. James stayed in NYC as did
his descendants. Presumeably, Thomas went to Philadelphia (maybe at age
18-20) and was never heard from again (by the NYC branch of the family).
Family squabble? Or just looking for better opportunities?
Anyone out there ever hear of a Thomas DUDGEON in PA?
Does anyone have any information on DUDGEONs in Northern Ireland. They
are believed to be of Scotch descent, possibly from the DUDGEONs of
Galloway. Their origins, based on the name, is believed to be of Norman
