The first husband and pedigree of Rebecca (Widow) Muldoon McCabe are not known but the following is our best conjecture of her family.
The Widow Muldoon's name first appeared on Ops in the record of her marriage to old Francis McCabe in Lindsay in Nov 1841. However the Muldoon family had appeared in various Census of Population of Ops by 1839.
1839 Census -- Arthur Muldoon, 2 males > 16, no females, living close to Michael McCabe, approximately Conc 7. This is likely Arthur and William Muldoon arriving in Ops.
1840 Census - William Muldoon, his new wife Ann Kent, and baby living on East side of Ops in approximately Conc 11. Arthur Muldoon is living close by with 2 females over age 16 - probably his mother Widow Muldoon and his sister Jane Muldoon who have arrived in Ops.
1841 - Actually Jan 1842 - William Muldoon continues to live on East side of Ops with wife and child. However, Arthur Muldoon is listed with 1 young male, 1 old male (himself) , 1 young female and 2 older females. By Jan 1842 the Widow was already married to Francis McCabe and his household shows 1 young male, 2 older males, and 2 older females; thus Rebecca must be the mother of Arthur, not his wife. Jane Muldoon is one of the older females but we can't tell which family unit she is listed in.
Summarizing, the most likely scenario is that the Widow Rebecca Muldoon is the mother of all three known Muldoons in OPS, William, Arthur, and Jane.
Rebecca Maria Muldoon was born in Ireland and immigrated to Canada before 1839. Her maiden name is unknown. Her husband or son was probably Arthur Muldoon who settled on Concession 7 in Ops, although that is not proved. In any case she was a widow by 1841 when she married "Old" Francis (Frank) McCabe of Ops. Rebecca was confirmed as a Catholic in the church at Downeyville in 1850 and her name appears in land transactions in the early 1850s when Francis sold his original homestead. There is no doubt that the Widow Muldoon who married Frank McCabe(as listed in the marriage records of St Marys) is the same as Rebecca Maria Muldoon.
Rebecca is living with Francis in the 1861 census of Ops. In the same household is Francis' newly arrived grandson, Michael McCabe, who had come to Ops in 1859 from Monaghan.
It is not known when Rebecca died. She was not mentioned in Frank's will of Aug 1862.
