1870 U. S. Census, Newark Ward 1, Essex, New Jersey, June 8, 1870
1880 Census, City of Newark, County of Essex, Pg 28, Dist. 1, Enum. Dist. 50, June 8, 1880

Married at St. Joseph Church 221 West Market St., Newark, New Jersey on Mar 28, 1870.


In the 1850 census of the Newark South Ward, James is shown as 33, a laborer from Ireland; Margaret is 20, also from Ireland, John 1, and Bernard 6/12.

James and Margaret (Walsh) Eagan were living in the 2nd ward of Newark, New Jersey, in 1860 according to the census of that year. ss. In 1860 the family consisted of James, 43, Margaret 30, John 12, Ann 7, Bridget, 5 and Henry 3. James was a laborer worth $1000 in real estate and $200 in personal property. No real estate has been located. Both he and Margaret were born in Ireland and all the children were born in New Jersey, including Ann. Obviously, they immigrated prior to about 1848. I found that two children, Margaret and Mary Walsh (under 14 years of age] immigrated on the ship St. Patrick on July 15, 1840. No other Walshes were listed on the manifest.

The 1870 census lists James at 51, a Tailor worth $5000 born Ireland; Margaret is shown as Margurite, 40, keeps house, born Ireland; Joseph F. 16; clerk in store, born New Jersey; Theresa M. 2; born New Jersey.

In the 1880 census James is 65, Manufacturing, born Ireland, both parents same; Margaret is shown as 50, a tailoress born in Ireland
both parents same. Alice is 15, and her relationship is shown as (illegible) daughter; she was born in NY and her parents were born in
Ireland. Teresa, 12, daughter, is in school, born in New Jersey.

A James Walsh and family was living in Ward 7 Newark in the 1860 census page 296.

Is there an index for the 1870 census of New Jersey? Was there a state census for New Jersey between 1865 and 1870?

The book by Hughes Spalding, THE SPALDING FAMILY IN AMERICA etc. ( see notes
for Basil Spalding) asserts that Catherine Edelen could not have bee n the
daughter of Thomas and Comfort Edelin since Thomas' will does not men tion any
children. However see the following indicating that the opposite i s true.
No. 405 "His (John Spalding's) son Basil became a wealthy plante r in Charles
County, married Catharine Edelen, daughter of Thomas and Comfort Edel in, and
died testate in 1792"
The CHRONICLES OF ST. MARY'S, VOL. 6, pg. 196, FHL975.2b2S, "Basi l Spald-
ing and Catherine Edilin (sic) were the parents of Blanche Spalding m.
Matthew (Henry) Mudd (1730-1810)."
See THOMAS JENKINS OF MARYLAND, 1670 by Edward Felix Jenkins, O.S. A. at
page 63. The article is about Mary Aloysia Mahoney, daughter of Ann
Spalding Mahoney (1208), daughter of Thomas Spalding (1198) of Ann Je nkins
(100). It states "Mary Aloysia (Ally, Alusia) Mahoney, married about
1775, Henry Thomas Mudd, son of Henry (Matthew?) and Blanche (Spaldin g) Mudd of
Charles County." The article lists her 12 children.
Comment on Prodigy from Charmaine Welker, PRJF38C, Spalding expert : "This
is wrong. Thomas Edelen and Comfort Barnes had no children. This Ca therine
is either a daughter or granddaughter of Comfort's by her 1st marriag e to
Patrick Dyer."
