Harry's biological father died and he was adopted by Edward Kelly . 
Kelly, Harry (I150793)
23006 [Madden-Madsen.FBK]

Source of information about Edward comes mostly from Mrs. Margaret (Peggy) Pudeler of New York , City his niece . Also from Census Records .
Edward and his brother William were born as Madsen , but along about 1922 they changed their last name to Madden , not legally it seems , as there is no record of this that I can find , and William went back to Madsen a short time later , this was done to get some job that they wanted at the time that was only hireing Irish at the time . Edward never went back to the name of Madsen it seems . Thus his two sons was born with the last name of Madden .
His one son William was later adopted and wasraised as William Kildoo .
Edward was a salesman for a Pharmacutical Company and traveled around Eastern U.S. hence his son Edward was born in Cincinatti,Ohio and William was born in Manhatten , New York City , N.Y.
The story goes according to Peggy Pudeler that when Edward John was born in Cincinatti theKlu Klux Klan stole their car .
Edward Chester Madden , died in a sanitariam in White Plains , N.Y. in 1927 of TB.
Edward Chester was known as Chester mostly by the family and on census records found.

Source; Margaret ( Peggy ) Pudeler , daughter of Matilda Irene ( Madsen ) Kelly.
At age of 88yrs. told me that her grandfather ( Charles Madsen ) had married their maid in Denmark, and was expelled from the family , and the family buisness which was the shipping lines . At this date 9/01/2000 I have not verified this report . She said he came to the U.S.A. and traveled around with his wife doing interior decorateing, thus the reason for all of their children being born in so many different states.

Remains Brought to This Place for Interment- Beautiful Tribute by Fellow Employees.
The remains of Richard Douglass, who died suddenly at his home in Peoria, Ill., on Monday, November 21, 1904, with apoplexy, were brought to Chariton on the afternoon of Thanksgiving day and interred in the Chariton Cemetery, brief services at the grave being conducted by Rev. Fred B. Palmer. Funeral services were held at the residence in Peoria on Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and the telegraph operators of the P. & P.U., and the Knights of Maccabees, of which orders he was a member, attended in a body.
Richard Douglass was the son of Noble Douglass of this city and the early years of his life were spent in Chariton. On August 4, 1886, he was married at Thayer, Iowa, to Miss Ella McFarland. They moved to Illinois in 1893 and for ten years before his death resided in Peoria where he was employed as a telegraph operator. He had been ailing for about ten months but was only seriously ill for about three hours. He leaves a wife and four children and to them the tenderest sympathy of a host of Chariton friends is extended. From a paper published at Peoria we take the following eulogy which was sent out to his fellow employees.
Fellow Employees, P. & P.U. railway: Death has entered our ranks and taken form among us Operator Richard D. Douglass.
Those of us who knew him personally knew him as a man of kindly heart. That he would divide his last dollar with a friend.
It was a pleasure to meet him, and his gentle nature made us loath to leave him. Friends remained his friends, and strangers were drawn to him until they became his friends.
There are many heavy hearts today on the P. & P.U.
Let us as a small token of regard and memory of him lay upon his bier a wreath of flowers in loving remembrance of our departed friend Dick.

From an E-mail correspondance, 06/2002

Luther married Betsey Severy and they had 5
children(that lived anyway). Luther was in the war of 181 2 and was actually
a prisioner of war. They married in Vermont, went to New Y ork and then to
Michigin. There children were Alonzo, Orley & Orsemus (twi ns), Lucinda and
William. I am direct line from Orsemus. Luther drowned i n Erie PA in 1834.
A lot of the internet stuff says New York, however I have d ocumentation that
it was in PA. He had gone back to NY on business and drown ed on the way
back to MI. His wife and children continued to run the Hot el they owned for
a couple of more years and then farmed. Orsemus took his f amily to Emporia
Kansas in 1870 along with his brother William and Betsey br other Luther
Severy. William ended up returning to MI though after he s old his farm.
Orsemus and his wife Ann Jannette had six children, onl y 4 lived. His
oldest child was James Douglass, who's oldest child was Ear l Douglass, who's
only child was Claude Douglass my grandfather. I have a lo t of census work
and depositions and obits. I like the names and dates, bu t if I can find a
story, I am in heaven.

Would love to hear your stories. If you want any more info , let me know. I
just touched on the basics. I need to put this out on th e net. A lot on
Cyrus Douglass, however nothing on Luther.

Take Care
