Francis Marion Aday was born in Morgan County, Alabama to Albert S. and Elizabeth Jane Bell Aday on 8th of November 1879. I know very little about his
early life, he worked as a machinist then became a conductor for the Memphis & Charleston Railroad and later for the Southern Railway. Sometime in early 1900ís the railroad
moved out of Morgan county, and Francis left Morgan county and moved to Brooklyn, Kings, New York, in the 1910 census he is shown to be working as an electrical engineer in
an ice plant, he married Mary Ellen Carney in Revere, Suffolk, Massachusetts on the 9th of May 1909, they had 3 daughters all born in Brooklyn, Kings, New York, Virginia
Marion Aday, born February 2nd, 1910, Doris Bell Aday, born July 8th, 1912, Mary Elizabeth Aday (my mother), born January 11th 1919. Sometime between 1925 and 1930 they
moved to Hagerstown, Washington, Maryland. His life in Maryland is still a mystery to be solved, but have just recently discovered information concerning his death. He wrote
his last will and testament while still a resident of Brooklyn, on the 5th day of April 1921, he died on the 6th of September 1928 in Hagerstown, cause unknown. In his will
he left everything to his wife, trusted to her judgment to take care of the three girls, and left to his mother Elizabeth Jane Bell the sum of one thousand dollar ($1000.00).
He was buried in the Rose Hill Cemetery, Hagerstown, Washington, Maryland. The family remained in Hagerstown until the mid 1930ís and moved to Melrose, Middlesex, Massachusetts.
