  • Notes 
    • Miranda (or Maranda) Jane was the daughter of Joseph (or Andrew) and Missuria (or Nancy) (North) McFadden. Andrew "Tweedle Dum" McFadden was a noted hunter and close friend of Daniel Boon and James Audubon.

      One reference says Miranda was born in Iowa. Family legend says that her mother, her future mother-in-law, and she were attacked by Indians in 1828 close to the Ohio River in the vicinity of Mount Vernon, Posey County, Indiana. The two older ladies were killed and Miranda was half scalped. She bore the scars from this injury for the rest of her life.

      Miranda is found on the 1850 census of Black Township, Posey County, Indiana as age 26, on the 1860 census as age 35, and on the 1880 census as age 55.
