    What a fine looking woman.

    Do you know when and where the image was taken?

    Madigan descendants are plentiful.  I have many Madigan cousins around the world, sharing DNA with me.

  • I am sorry, but I do not know when or where this phot of Mary Ann Madigan was taken. I wish I knew more, but I'm just grateful I have this photo of her. I know that John Purtell and wife MaryAnn Madigan were in Binghamton, New York from about 1850-1852. Then they went to the Emmett, St. Clair Co area of Michigan. By 1870, MaryAnn was deceased and husband John was in Bay City, Bay Co, Michigan with his sons in 1870.
