General Notes: Husband - Clyde Sinclair CORRIGAN
=================================================================================================

Child number 1 is "Wrong Way" Corrigan who, in 1938, filed a flight plan from New York to
California and landed in Ireland. He explaned to angry authorities that he had gotten turned
around in the fog and didn't know he had left the country until many hours later. Some rumors
have it that he finally admitted to deliberately 'getting lost' just before his death, others
say he always maintained his innocence. Douglas Corrigan began his flying career as a very young
man and also worked in aviation manufacture and repair. His company built the Spirit of St Louis
for Charles Lindbergh to fly to Paris.
