    His great-grandfather William Walter Maden’s mother was Julia Washington. I think this is her:

    Also, interestingly, Elbert Maden’s parents came from different West Indian islands; his father came from one controlled by the French, while his mother came from an English-controlled one.

    I guess I found some interesting information about Maden’s paternal great-grandfather William:

    1) The following newspaper records show a William W. Maden, the son of a E./Flhert Maden, as living in Oregon trt, Berkeley, California. This William was quite certainly Tom’s great-grandfather.

    2) According to the 1920 and 1930 U.S. Censuses, William’s father was born in either Virginia or Maryland.

    3) The 1940 U.S. Census has a Elbert/Ebbert W. Maden, born in Virginia, c. 1862, who was living in Oregon, Berkeley, California, with his much younger wife, Cora A. (Young), and their daughter. Elbert was listed as “Negro” on that Census.

    Although is impossible for Cora to be William’s mother, I strongly believe Elbert was William’s father. That would make Tom at very least 1/16th African-American.
