George G,

I am the Great Grandson of Martin Quinn involved in the Haymarket Riot. Your question only took nine years to reach me. It is like a bottle message thrown in the ocean. I have some facts to share and hope you do too! My email address is maddenmoos @ AOL com. My mother was his grand-daughter. John Everett Quinn was her father, also a Chicago Police Lietentant.

Hi George!

I am the great-granddaughter of Martin Quinn and the granddaughter of Lillian Quinn, the youngest daughter of Martin and Ann. My grandmother remembered her brother John fondly and w/great respect...it was recalled that he could do push-ups well into his later years. My grandmother was a wonderful storyteller! She was born in 1888 and passed away when she was 93. She lived with us when I was growing up and was very much a part of our everyday lives. My Aunt Virginia and my mom made the Haymarket donations to the Chicago Historical Society. My daughter lives in Lincoln Park & I worked for The Marmon Group, Inc. in Chicago for about 15 years. I now live in Raleigh, NC. Most of my family still lives in the Chicago area. We would be most happy to hear from you! --- Mary Beth (Wahl Schmitt)
