Hello Patty ;D
The only part that fits my Lizzy Madigan is, that she was from a cirus family from the states who traveled in England...My grandmother, Lizzy, grew up in a circus and vaudeville family performing and traveling, since she was a young child...I am wondering if our Madigan families might be connected...My grandmother was born Nov.1882 in Bingingham, England. I believe she was born a Madigan, but her parents divorced when she was very young, and she later took her step-father's sur name,(Holdsworth)--so her legal name became, Elizabeth Margaret Holdsworth.
Here is what I have:
Born: abt 1845 in Orleans, [county], LA, USA
Children Sex Birth
James A Madigan M abt 1871 in [city], [county], NY, USA
Ida E Madigan F abt 1875 in [city], Birmingham, [county], England
Charles D Madigan (or Holdsworth) M abt 1878 in Paris, [department], [region], France
Elizabeth Margaret(Lizette,or Lizzy))Madigan(Holdsworth) F 24 Nov 1882 in [city], Birmingham, [county], England
Ada Madigan (or Holdsworth) F abt 1884 in Holland
Let me know if any of the above sounds like our families could be related...I remember my grandmother telling me that either her real father, "Charles Madigan," or her step-father (Sam Holdsworth )was a well-known irish tenor that sang at the Orpheum Theater,in NY, until he was up in his 80's.
I think it would be exciting to find that we have family ties. They had a lot of children way back then. My grandmother had 7 brothers and sisters I believe.
Happy Holidays to You too!
