Greetings, I’m trying to find some Rudden relatives. My G-G- Grandfather was John Rudden born about 1851. He married a Susan Reilly from Drumcor, Redhills, Co. Cavan. John’s family may have come from Drumcor also. On his childrens baptismal certs a Peter Rudden and a Patt Rudden appear. These children were born in the 1870’s. John left Ireland for the USA in 1877 and his family followed in 1879. Here they lived as Reilly as John was a wanted man. An article regarding the crime can be found by entering “Rudden, Reilly, Brides,1877 in Google.
Anyone who has any information or connection to this Rudden family please contact me.

Dennis, Try the 1901 Irish census that is online and free. Most Ruddens were from Co.Cavan and Monaghan.
