Pigeon Twp.

James McFadden is a native of Harrison County, Ind., born August 9, 1825, the second son in a family of four children: Andrew J., James, Ezekiel and Amanda, born to James and Jane (Woods) McFadden, natives respectively of Ohio and Indiana. The father, who was a steamboat and house carpenter by trade, died in Mississippi, and the mother died in Kentucky. James McFadden, Jr., was left and orphan when young, and at the age of twelve years began for himself as cook on a steamboat, and followed boating for fifteen years, during which time he met with many incidents of interest that would alone fill a good sized volume. July 30, 1857, his marriage with Miss Elizabeth A. Frakes was solemnized, and to their union have been born twelve children: William T., Henry L., George W., Frederick, John, Andrew, Rebecca, Grayson F., James, Nora, Effie and Eva, all living except Henry L. Mrs. McFadden is a Democrat in politics, and he and wife are members of the General Baptist Church, and are well-to-do and respected citizens. For a number of years Mr. McFadden has been engaged in agricultural pursuits, and by economy and industry has secured a good farm of 100 acres.
