Ellen Cronin 24
"As a sidelight - Ellen Cronin Duffy was from Virginia and a southern girl at heart. The day Lincoln was shot she was so happy that se wanted to run out in the street and yell and jump with joy. Michael Duffy stayed home at that time, that anyone showing any elation at Lincoln's death was apt to be strung up on the nearest tree, and many were." I understand that the confusion and intrigue in Washington was terrible. You couldn't be sure of a loyalty of anyone. Your closest neighbor might turn rat for some advantage to him."
Ellen married Michael Duffy, son of Unknown Duffy and Unknown. (Michael Duffy was born in 1822 in , Dublin, Leinster, Ireland.)
