Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 27, 1866, USA
Death: Jan. 16, 1960, USA

She married first, John H. Riggs and second, James Robert Beattie. She was the daughter if Henry Thomas Harrison and Laura Broders. They were married in Washington, D.C., where her father was probably doing his investigation work for the Confederate States Army. Her father was the actor and Confederate spy who gave information about Union forces to General James Longstreet and General Robert E. Lee just prior to the start of the Battle of Gettysburg. In 1865 he took his wife and daughter to Mexico, where, soon after, due to marital problems he just took off, leaving them. A number of years later he made the attempt to reconnect with Mary Irene, but was more or less rebuffed by the family. She was the sister of Elizabeth "Bessie" Harrison, who married Benjamin FranklinKagay, Jr. (Notes contributed by member, Charlott Jones).
