Hellen Dickson Corrigan was the daughter of Walter Dickson and Mary Anthony. She was also the first wife of James E. Corrigan (divorced). Hellen grew up in the pioneer settlement of Lone Pine in Portage County, Wisconsin. She only attended school to the eighth grade. She always was very interested in family history and kept a diary. On April 26, 1918, she wrote about her grandson Tom's birth: "A baby boy came to this house at half past six this morning and is doing well and so is Jessie...Baby weighed 6 1/2 lbs."
Hellen was also very interested in family history especially her mother's Anthony line. She was close friends with her second cousin Charles Anthony and his wife Lina, who lived in Madison, Wisconsin. When an Anthony family tree was discovered in an old Bible Hellen helped to distribute it to all the Anthony descendants on her side of the family.
Hellen was a survivor of the great tornado of 1903. That storm tore a path of devastation through southern Portage Co, WI, on Oct. 3, 1903, even toppling and destroying granite tombstones in Lone Pine Cemetery.
Hellen was very devoted to her four grandchildren who survived her.
