(In)Famous Corrigans

This one's for the family.

Have any of you ever typed our name into google to see what you get. Some funny stuff comes up, particularly for Jimmie. Here's another one though from a book i'm reading. Its called "Titan" and its about JD Rockefeller and the history of Standard Oil. No it's not for school, yes i'm reading it's interesting i swear.

Anyway, about half way through the book i run into a brief story about a James Corrigan from Cleveland. I know our family was out that way in Michigan many years ago, but i'm not aware of any James's's's in the family back then. I never know how to puncuate words like that. Jameses, James's...anyway, I'm not sure if the scan will be legible but here's the gist of it.

"The Corrigan" affair, as it is reffered to in the book, paired Corrigan up with Rockefeller's dim-wit brother, Frank. A deal that could've yielded enourmous profits for both wound up further souring the relationship with Frank and JD and causing a lifetime of friction between Corrigan and Rockefeller.

Thats all i've got today...but i thought my fellow Corrigan's might find it intersting.
