I found them on page 156 Lowell 5th ward. My family is on page 288 Lowell Ma Patrick McQuade 45 Ireland Patrick McQuade 16 Ireland Margaret McQuade 18 Ireland Rosa McQuade11 Ireland Anne McQuade10 New Brunswick
I found Ann Donnely McQuade died in Lowell in 1849. Margaret McQuade is my great grandmother who died in Indianapolis, Ind. in 1900. On the same census page 2nd family down is Patrick McQuade with his family. He is my great grandfather. My grandmother told me both my great grandparents were McQuade's but were not related 1 family was from Northern Ireland and the other from County Cork. I believe Margaret's family was from County Cork. Do you think our families are related?
