b: 3 June 1866, Deer Isle ME (d: MT, 1954); later spent childhood times at Littleton Ridge ME; as a young man and after a winter of logging in northern ME, he ( maybe after philosophical differences w/his Gf Peter Haggerty Sr ; ("I knew the old man would be waiting to take my money when I got off the boat...so I just stayed on") moved on to millwright and logging jobs in Butte MT, MI, MN, was a MT mine mucker & followed the harvest from Kansas to the Dakota's; thence to WI, places near Stillwater and the St Croix River like Houlton WI ( possibly to connect with his uncle, Thomas Haggerty who had settled there); m: Mary Jane (Mamie) O'Connell in WI on 28 April 1897; ( the O'Connell's migrated from Ireland during the mid-1840's to NYC; the larger part of the family moved south, the remainder took up .farming in Jewitt WI [a location now GWTW]; as noted in the 1905 national census, Mrs Julia A O'Connell, then age 68, resided with the family ) ; raised a large family which was education & orthodoxed Roman Catholic oriented; was a landlord ; owned waterfront property on the St Croix River; was a fair card player; was in the land business; acquired the retail store and post office operation from his uncle Tom which later went "bust" ( long on credit, short on collections ); introduced pre-fab house building techniques to the area ( 1880's-1910's ); moved on to Glendive in eastern MT ( 1918 ), to farming & carpentry work ; in the 1930 USA census for Glendive MT, he was listed as a contractor in building construction, living at home at the time were: Mary Jane (wife), Catherine M (dau), Charles S (son) who was a "Call Boy" on a steam railroad, & Thomas G (son), they all lived in a rented house w/o radio; campaigned for public office; ; suffered from Parkinson's Disease; 9 kids:
Grandson Bernie Bidwell's Note: I have been looking into the information I have in regard to my grandfather Edward P. Haggerty and cannot find anything concerning the fact that he might have owned a pub, although I suppose that would not have been impossible. He started traveling back and forth from Houlton to Montana in the early 1900's before moving his entire family to Montana in 1915. They were flat broke at the time. (My Grandmother's friend, Mrs. John Joyce, loaned her five dollars for emergency use, that probably being the only money they had) Grandmother and her entire brood of nine children traveled on the train to Glendive, Montana where they were met by Grandfather Edward (EP) and Jim Cashman. They all stayed overnight at the Cashman's, moving into an old house the next day that Grandfather had made arrangements for. Both my Grandfather and Jim Cashman each drove Model T Fords to move the family. Before moving to Montana, E. P. Haggerty worked in the woods in Maine as a logger when he was a young man. When he was coming back down the river on his way home he decided that the "old man" Peter Sr. would just take all of his money so he stayed on the boat and continued on down the river, making his way to Montana for the first time. I think he first worked in the mines in Butte as a mucker for a living. I notice there is a blank for his date of death on your webpage. He died in 1954. Also as information, his grandson, John Scarseth Haggerty (Uncle John's son) died about November last year. (2009) John, as I think you are aware, was a scientist working at MIT and was instrumental in developing hardened plastics for commercial and military use. Don't mean to ramble so much. Anyway, I don't know whether or not EP ever owned or ran a pub. I would be interested in any information you have along those lines. I never heard any mention of that and sort of doubt that he did...Regards, Bernie Bidwell
From "Red" Haggerty, his son: "He was born June 2 1866 on Deer Island Maine. While still very young, he and his brother Charles lived at times , at least, with their grandfather in the northern part of the state
, where grandfather worked in timber, even in the deep snow. I do not recollect that he ever mentioned his father. I do remember that he recounted making trips, I imagine with his grandfather, on sailing ships up and down the eastern coast."
From Frances Haggerty Bidwell (his daughter): "I often wondered just what happened in my dad's early life, that made him so resentful of his family. He would never talk about them, and whenever my mother wanted to try to get in touch with him, he would say ""just leave things as they are - we are better off to not know them"" . I suppose it could have been the fact that his mother had this younger sister Lillian, who was illigitimate, but I cant believe that that would make him so bitter. I know that his grandfather was a pretty stern old man, and heavy on the punishment. Maybe some day, if you keep digging something might come to light. it will have to be soon - while some of that generation are still alive."

From the Augusta MT Gazette by Liz Stiffler re: "Tails 'n' Tales" by Margaret Fornall: "Margaret Fornall says she wanted to write stories and books ever since she learned to read - and that was a long time ago! After almost 60 years of raising a family and pursuing her many hobbies, her dream finally came true. Her first book, Tails 'n' Tales, is a collection of childrens stories, many of which are based on her own experiences with children.
Margaret was born  in Houlton, Wis., the sixth of nine children. In 1917 her very "Irish family" moved to eastern Montana north of Glendive where she grew up, attending the rural school for two years. She graduated from Dawson County High School in 1924.
Margaret went to Teachers' College in Dillon for two quarters, but it was not until 1965 after years of teaching experience, correspondence courses, summer school in Miles City and a lot of hard work that she finally received her B.A. in elementary education. During the 41 years it took her to get her degree she also raised a family of five.
When Margaret was 19,she married John Fornall and they lived on a ranch near Glendive. Margaret taught school, when, as she recalls, "it was three and a half miles to school through the badlands." She either rode a horse or drove a car. The horse was slower, but much safer she says, when she taught in the small community of Volborg.
The Fornall's moved to Fairfield in 1936 and lived near Sun River Irrigation Project until 1956, seven years of which she taught in the Fairfield School District. Her years of teaching are memorable to her and have inspired many of the stories she writes. Although she has had bites and nibbles on her material during the last few decades, "Tails 'n' Tales" is her first major publication."
Now, Margaret is working on a second collection of stories for another book. (d: 94 years old, 2001, prox: Oct 19, Eureka MT)

From the publishers "blurb" re: "Light Flashbacks to a Dark Time" by Charles P. Haggerty
"The author was born in Wisconsin and raised in the stock and wheat country of Eastern Montana during the dust bowl years of the early twenties (1920's). There he learned to tolerate adversity and to love the open, quiet, big sky country.
His long career in education, which started as a student and later as a teacher in the rural schools of Eastern Montana, ended as a special program director for the Oregon State Department of Education from which he retired in 1972.
He served as a meteorologist (weather man) on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific, 1943-45, received his private pilot's license at age 60 and is currently in volunteer work in the administration of programs for seniors in the Salem, Oregon area.
Delivery of this manuscript to the printer will free the writer to complete a second book covering sea, flying and travel stories. b: MN 23JUNE1910, d: 27OCT2000, age 90, Salem OR, SSN:517-09-7131
