In the 1880 Federal Census, Bridget is a widow living with her daughter's (Edward Scott) family in Cochecton, New York. The 1870 Federal Census records a Bridget Kaden (indexed as Raden) as 38 years old living with the Edward Scott family.
The 1860 Federal Census for Jeffersonville Post Office, Cochecton, New York, page 467, recorded July 14, 1860, several pages over from Edward Scott, lists Bridget Kagan (48) in the same household as Patrick (25), Catherine (18), and Margaret (13) Kagen. All members of this household being born in Ireland. This is most likely the same family listed in 1870 with Catherine married to Edward Scott and the Patrick Kaden family living next door. Since Margaret (13) is listed as being born in Ireland, this family must have immigrated as a family sometime after 1847 and before 1860.
The 1870 census records Bridget living with her daughter and husband, Catherine and Edward Scott ... see general notes on Edward Scott for 1870 census facts.
The 1900 Federal Census, New York, Sullivan Co., Cochecton, ED 83, page 53A, records Patrick Kegan still living next to the Edward Scott family. Patrick is a widow and his daughter Agnes continues to live with him.
The Sullivan County Historical sent documents in January 2004 that indicate Briget's name as Kadian. An email discussion with Mr. Paul Lewis, AP History Teacher at Cleveland Hill High School, Carrollton (New Ireland), Cattaraugus Co., N.Y., describe the Kadian name as an English version of the Irish Brogue for Keating. Other variations for the name include Kaden, Kadien, Caton, Cayton, Kayton, and Kating.
The 1900 Federal Census records the widower Patrick Kadian living in Cochecton, Sullivan Co., N.Y. as having immigrated to the U.S. in 1850...which means Bridget and family did as well.
