Trying to connect to possible McQuade relations in Lowell, Mass., or other Mass./ R.I. milltowns. My GGG grandparents Catherine McQuade and William Finley and their children were weavers who lived in several different milltowns in Mass. and R.I. Many of their children claimed to have been born in Lowell, but in at least one case this has proven not to be true. In 1860, family lived in Lancaster (Worcester), Mass., finally settling in Fall River in 1870s.Here's what I know,
