Patrick Dignan, b. Ireland 1846, m. Catherine (Kate) Laughlin, daughter of Luke and Mary Laughlin, Sabetha, KS, about 1880.Catherine died in Kansas City, Missouri 14 Feb 1918.
Patrick and Kate had at least 5 children. Edward, b.1876, Mary, b.1878, Alice, b.1880, James, b.1882, and Helen (Ethel?), b. 1884
One or two generations later, an Emmet Dignan (wife Mary) settled in Denver, CO., worked in a downtown Denver bank for many years after World War II.One of their sons, Jerry Dignan, was a racing commissioner for the Denver greyhound race track in the 1950's,and possible into the 1960's. All of their familes have left the Denver area for several years.
I would be grateful to receive any information on this Dignan thread to re-establish communication and complete the descendancy of my great Uncle Luke Laughlin's family.Thank you for your help.
