Death

Maggie was buried with her husband and young children in Larimore cemetery.

Shared note

SIS ' papers: she had 3 or 4 boys who died in infancy. She also had 3 daughters.

Mary Lempe says that the boys all died due to a genetic deficiency. The girls were ok though. Margaret's husband Martin died soon after the boys.

Martin and Margaret were living near other McCabes(Michael and family) in 1900 census in Hegton Township ND.

In 1930 she is living in Seattle with Ellis Lee and wife Mamie. I assume Mamie is a daughter since Margaret is listed as mother-in-law. Renton City in King Co. ED 17-359 Sheet 3B

Note

email from Lee Quarstrom (April 2007):

I have vivid memories of my great-grandmother Margaret McCabe Connolly. I am the oldest of the grandchilden of her daughter Mayme (pronounced May-mee) Lee, so I have more memories, I'm certain than most of the others in my generation. I well recall her burial in North Dakota, attended by my mother and brother and I as well by my cousin Patrick McCabe, who had lived in Washington DC and later joined the Coast Guard. I have since lost track of him but would appreciate having his email address if you have it. I never met his father, who was confined in a tuberculosis ward at St. Elizabeth's hospital in Washington DC when my family lived there for two years in the early 1950s.

My great-grandmother was an avid card player, pinochle mostly, but also played poker with her sons-in-law, often with a bottle of beer in front of her. (Her doctor had told her to drink a beer daily for nourishment; she was quite frail in her later years.) Before she moved in with Mayme she lived nearby in an old house with a parlor that we children were not allowed to visit; those were what you might think of as the olden days. She was a sweet old lady.

By the way, our mother's birth name was Margaret Lenore Lee. You no doubt know of her sisters Norma Hansen, now deceased, and Virginia Patterson, still living near Renton, Wash. They had a brother, Charles, who died as a child when they family still lived in Montana. Mayme told me he died of "the summer complaint," which was, I believe, a name for the dehydration caused by diarrhea ... Did you know that for a while they lived in a sod hut and that Mayme once emptied her Colt's revolver, as she called her weapon, at what she thought were "half- breeds" sneaking up in the night but what was actually somethiing being blown about by the wind?

During the visit in ND for the burial we stayed, I think, at Uncle Ben McCabe's house. He owned a Sinclair gas station ...

I met your grand-father Frank several times, notably during a trip he and his wife, whom he called "Ted" although that was unrelated to her real name, took to visit relatives in Seattle in their Packard. I subsequently spent a night or two with them at their Texas home, during a hitch-hiking trip to Mexico in 1961. I remember that he had a son, who may have been your father, in some larger Texas city, perhaps Corpus. Frank had a grapefruit orchard that he made some money from but I think he had retired as postmaster -- and was proud of the fact that although he had lived in the Rio Grande Valley for half a century he had learned no more Spanish than "si" and "no." He was a nice man and, as I recall, must have enjoyed a drink or two as there was a sizable pile of empty whiskey bottles in the back yard. I recall that when I reported this to my mother she blew up, something she often did were one to say anything even slightly critical of Catholicism, the Irish (at least the Catholic Irish), Democrats or fish sticks.I remember that when I left Texas, Uncle Frankk gave me two silver dollars.

(More family stuff which I'm sure you know: I recall his brother, Uncle Jack McCabe, who lived (and died, as I recall) in Seattle. He was the tallest man I had ever seen as a child, perhaps 6'10" tall.

Mayme had at least three sisters in the Seattle area, Kate, Rose and (I think) Ruth. For more info on them, one of whom is still alive (Rose McCabe Belland), my cousin Rayanne Hansen Richardson, whose info you must have, is a good source. Please keep us up to date on your efforts, which are, I'm certain, as appreciated by other McCabe offspring as they are by me.
