  • Note*: Interview with Helen McIntyre regarding her memories of Bessie Thompson Madigan,her grandmother, in Elaine M. Beaudoin's file. The text of which follows:
    E: What are the first memories you have of your grandmother, Bessie?
    H: She was always with us and she was a little lady and she was always smiling, and a lot of fun. Nellie went over to see her all the time and she would come and see us.
    E: Did she come visit you when you were little?
    H: We lived on Fillmore with her until I was five. I was born there. Nellie, Pops and Tom moved in and then I was born there. It was a two flat on Fillmore. We lived on the second floor and she lived on the first floor. She sold the building so we had to move. She moved west and we moved to Latrobe. We still saw her
    E: Who lived with her?
    H: Uncle Harry and Uncle John. Mostly Uncle John, I think Harry got married along the way
    E: What did you call your grandmother?
    H: Nana
    E: What were her other houses like?
    H: They were all two flats. I remember the house on Fillmore. Pops and Uncle John would sit on the porch on the swing and I would sit with them. I remember the backyard. And, one day I went out and got lost. I went to the show by myself, I was only about four, and Pops had to find me. One time Uncle John and my Father were drinking beer on the porch and I said “I want some of that” and Pops said “No you don’t” and Uncle John said “Give her some” and I took a drink and I said “Ickkkkkk.”
    E: Is this why you don’t drink beer now?
    E: What was her house like?
    H: Her house was always clean and it was a normal house. I remember on Quincy she had a great big picture that Uncle George Rooney drew. It was black and white and I think it was a lion in a cage. It was really good. And, I always used to look at it. Uncle George drew on the side. He worked for the railroad. I don’t remember anything else special about the house.
    E: Do you remember the holidays with her?
    H: We always went over to her house for Thanksgiving dinner. She got sick and then Aunt Mae and Nellie took it over.
    E: Who came to Thanksgiving dinner at Nana’s?
    H: Aunt Mae and I think Burdett, Nellie, Pops, Tom and me; Uncle Harry and Uncle John. Aunt Nanny was living in Denver at the time, but Ruth would come sometimes.
    E: Her nephew, William Hallaran, used to live with her. Do you remember him?
    H: That was a long time ago. Yes, but I think I only met him once or twice. I forget why he was there.
    E: Thanksgiving was her holiday?
    H: Yes, She always had it until she fell down and broke her leg. She must have been in her 70s, she was running down the stairs to fix the furnace and she tripped on the stairs and broke her leg. She had to use a cane and never was quite the same after that. She couldn’t do anything around the house; she would sit in the chair. Nellie and Aunt Mae would come over to help her.
    E: Thanksgiving, was there anything special she made?
    H: I can’t remember, she was a good cook, good desserts, everything was good.
    E: Did you ever go on vacation with Nana
    H: I think once she went with us to Lakewood, Michigan. I think once we took her up there. We were right on the lake. We used to go for two weeks. She was just up there for a few days. She was in her 70s, I think.
    E: Did she ever talk about her husband? How did she support herself after he died?
    H: No, I don’t remember her talking about her husband. But, Nellie did. She would say how she was young and she had seven kids; he died of pneumonia I think. Nellie would say that she struggled along. I think she took in sewing (or washing and ironing) and she didn’t want to do that anymore so she opened a grocery store. Nellie said she did pretty good at that.
    E: Were you ever in the grocery store?
    H: I don’t even remember a grocery store. She probably got rid of it before I was born. I think her kids were all little when she had the grocery store.
    H: What I remember is running downstairs to see Nana and Uncle John when we were on Fillmore. Uncle John would be eating pig tails and he would wave them at me and scare me. He used to love them. I thought they were worms. I went into the kitchen and asked him if he was eating lunch and he said “Yes” and he shook it at me and it was a long thing. And I started screaming and ran upstairs and told Mother that Uncle John is downstairs eating worms.
    E: Do you know where Nana was born?
    H: No, I never knew. I never heard about where she lived. They talked about the Southside. She never talked about Ireland and she didn’t have a brogue. She never talked about Ireland.
    E: You thought she took in washing?
    H: I think Nellie told me that. Then it got to be too much for her. I don’t’ know why she opened a grocery store. She must have made some money because she bought two houses.
    E: I think two of her husband’s brothers had grocery stores.
    H: I didn’t know that. She might have bought one of their stores.
    E: I’ll have to see if I can figure that out.
    E: Do you remember any stories about Harry or John. We will talk about them again later.
    H: I remember Harry owned a tavern and I think Uncle John was a plumber. Harry asked John if he wanted to be a bartender for him. So John went to work for him. He [Harry] had a place at Madison and Crawford. And he and Uncle John didn’t get along; because he thought John was too friendly with the customers and talked too much. Uncle Harry was more of a business man. He had a woman who was a bartender and Uncle Harry thought she was wonderful. My Uncle John didn’t like her because she was giving free drinks to the customers. Uncle John told Uncle Harry this and Harry didn’t believe him and they had a big fight over it and he fired Uncle John.
    E: Was this Harry’s first bar?
    H: Yes, then he moved some place out west. I think Apollo Savings took over the building [where the tavern was]. Mr. Clancy [the owner of Apollo Savings and Loan where Helen McIntyre worked] would say he knew Uncle Harry and he said “we moved in your uncle’s place.”
    E: Do you remember Nana after she got ill?
    H: I just remember when we went to visit her she would be sitting in her chair. I was about 16. She didn’t have her pep anymore. I don’t know if she got the flu or something and she went to bed and was there for two weeks or so and then she died.
    E: What happened to John and Harry after she died [They were living in her house]
    H: I think they still lived there. Uncle Harry got married late. I can’t remember. Uncle John went to Wisconsin, Hayward I think. I guess they stayed at Nana’s house until they got married. Uncle Harry married Margaret Saunders and they lived around Garfield Park someplace. I think that is when he gave up the [tavern] business.
    E: You mentioned that Nana was waked at her house.
    H: All I remember is that I was sitting in the front room and she was by the window and Uncle John came in and he leaned over her and was crying. I remember watching him. That is all I remember about the wake.
    E: Were there other people there?
    H: I can’t remember, I suppose there were people that came. I remember Mary Sullivan [Helen’s cousin] came. She hadn’t seen me in a long time. She said, “Oh you really have grown up.” She was a few years younger than me.
    E: What was the funniest thing you remember about her?
    H: I really don’t remember anything funny about her.
    E: You know when your grandchildren and great grandchildren are asked that question about you they won’t be able to stop talking!!
    E: Do you remember anything sad about her.
    H: The only thing I felt sad about was when she fell and she broke her leg [3 or 4 years before she died] and she couldn’t do anything. She changed. She just sat there and waited for Nellie and Aunt Mae to come over to help her. Nellie went over there on Monday and Wednesday and Aunt Mae went Tuesday and Thursday. They washed and iron and clean the house and would go to the store. So finally Aunt Mae said “I’m tired of all of this baloney. Harry should get a maid.” So she told him to get a maid, and said “we are not coming over any more.” Nellie said she didn’t mind. Aunt Mae said “I do.” I think Harry got a maid and her name was Alma or something like that.
    E: I just realized that they were doing housework not just for Nana but for Harry and John also.
    H: That was it. Aunt Mae was more outgoing than Nellie. She said “What are we doing this for, let Harry get a maid in here.”
    E: Did Nellie and Nana go out together or go over to your house?
    H: Oh yes, lots of times she would come over to the house, especially when she was over at Congress. They talked on the phone and they were very friendly. We’d go see her. She was always around. They were real friendly. We’d see her at all the get togethers.
    E: Did they play cards or do other things together?
    H: I think they played cards, I can’t remember anything special.
    E: She [Nana] was twenty years younger than you are now. Did she seem old to you?
    H: She still seems old to me, she was a little grey haired old lady. She wasn’t silly like me. But she was very interested in everything and everybody.
    E: What else to you remember about her or her place?
    H: I can’t remember Congress at all. I remember Fillmore and Quincy.
    E: Do you know where Nana is buried
    H: I think she is buried out in Evanston, at Calvary I think.
    E: Do you remember her funeral?
    H: Funny I can’t remember anything. I just remember sitting in her living room when she died.
    E: Probably at Resurrection Parish?
    H: Yes, probably at Resurrection because she lived just before Cicero Avenue. But I can’t remember anything about the funeral.
    E: Could you describe her physically?
    H: She was only about 5 foot two, maybe a little shorter then Nellie. She had grey hair when I knew her, but I think she had red hair when she was young. She wasn’t fat and not thin, just normal. She always wore her hair up in a knob on the top of her head. She was always neat and always trying to help people.
    E: Well, thank you very much for the interview.
    H: I hope it doesn’t sound too crazy.
