CASE #222 (Posted August 26, 2009 Further SOLVED Jan 24 2018) Further Solved (June 30, 2021)

Multiple sources: 1) Hello, I came across the posting from 2009. My name is Rustom Madon, and Homi was my father, and Betty was my mother. Are we related? RUS MADON <>
2) Hello Zubs, This is Firdosh Tolat from Mumbai. Nusserwanji & Alamai Madon (of Madon Colony, Bhusaval) were our neighbours in Fort, Bombay. Nusserwanji was very fond of me and used to call me as his GRANDSON. Homi Uncle left India somewhere in 1950s for further studies in London. There he met Betty and they had 2 sons – Neville and Rustom. Their Navjote was done sometime in the late 1960s. Nusserwanji expired somewhere around in 1970 and that was the first time that Homi Uncle visited India after several years. Thereafter he kept in touch with us for his mother. Alamai expired in mid 1980s. Betty expired in 1990s. After that Homi Uncle married Patricia, who was also recently widowed and a very close friend of Betty & Homi. They visited us in 1999. Homi Uncle expired sometime later. Patricia continues to keep in touch with us. She resides in Harpenden, England, UK. She last visited India in February 2015, with her son David Katan. Behramji’s wife Aloo used to reside in Canada. She would also have crossed the mortal bridge by now. One of Nusserwanji’s brothers (don’t know which one) had a daughter Soonu who was married to a Doctor and who stayed opposite the Petit Sanatorium, on August Kranti Marg, Kemps Corner. I think name of the building was White Hall. Soonu expired sometime in the 1990s and we do not have any contacts with the family. You may write to Patricia or David Best wishes & warm regards, Tan Darosti & Cheers! Firdosh Khurshed Tolat
Response to 2) Mr. Tolat , your parents started living in the 2 nd floor flat where I lived with my parents……when we left, my dad’s cousin Maneck postwala lived there for years and then my parents rented it out to your parents and my uncle still occupied a room even then. It was in the 60s or 70s that your parents came to live there. You were a little child then. Mahabanoo Mody-Kotwal via Facebook
Case #222 (Posted August 26, 2009 Further SOLVED Jan 24 2018) Hi Ader, Hope you can post this!! I am quite interested in family tree research and am looking for some long lost relatives. I am looking for the descendants of Soonamai Madon (nee Mistry). I do not know her husband’s name. They both must have passed away in the 1930s. They had 3 sons – Nusserwanrji, Jamshedji and Behramji Madon. Nusserwanji married Alamai and had a son Homi Madon, who married a Christian lady named Betty. Jamshedji married, and had 2 kids – a girl, Gool and a boy. Behramji married Aloo Merchant and had a daughter, Gool. I think they may have been from Ahmedabad or Allahbhad.
