Couronnes de thym et de marjolaine. Les Elfes joyeux dansent sur la pline.

She was born at Tyrrellstown House, Mullingar, Westmeath, Ireland. She was the second oldest of 5 and the oldest girl. Her older brother immigrated to Canada, her sister to the Channel Isles. Her two younest brothers didn't survive past 1920. One died in the flu-epidemic in China in 1920, and the other some time during the war.
Their father, Robert Maxwell McCulloch, my great-grandfather died in 1894, their mother, Martha Helen Gordon in 1912.
Madge left their home before 1911, and spent some time in India, as a Nanny, and was in Paris in 1914 where she met my grandfather. He was studying art in Paris, and had also been to Madrid and Berlin. He came back to the states in the summer of 1914. In September of 1915 Madge left Liverpool on the Philadelphia bound for New York, on her way to Baltimore. I believe my grandparents married on November 3rd of that year, in Baltimore.
My father was born on August 3 1917 in Baltimore. In 1922 the young family moved to Greenwich Village in New York City, so my grandfather could be closer to the art world. In 1925 or 26, they bought a house in Stonington, which they used as a summer house or retreat, there was also a studio there where my grandfather did some of his work.
I never had the opportunity to meet her, she was dead long before I was born- but if I had the chance to meet anyone it would be her. She was a lovely lady who died too soon.
