About Margaret Bridget O'Toole

Olga & Lawrence O'Toole were buried at Calumet Park Cemetary in Merrillville, IN (right near Town Centre Retirement Center where Olga lived.) Dad's parents Margaret & (Frances) James raised their children in East Chicago, Indiana, attended St. Mary's parish in East Chicago where my parents were married at and where later Margaret O'Toole was buried from. For awhile M & J lived with my parents in Griffith ( 1940-45 or so) when they lived on Lafayette Street, next to St. Mary's. Later they moved with Aunt MaryAlyce, Uncle Stanley to a home 2 blocks north of Mom & Dad's. M&D left their home for TerreHaute around 1947-48 and returned to Griffith about two years later when they settled into the home we all remember on Elm street. James died from pneumonia in his home in Griffith. Margaret died in East Chicago where she, Mary Alyce & Stanley lived together in an apartment they rented with a paint store in front.

EAST CHICAGO IS JUST SETTLING DOWN THIS MORNING AFTER IT'S BIGGEST THRILL IN YEARS OCCASIONED BYTHE DARING RAID OF TWO BANDITS ON THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK AT CHICAGO AND INDIANAPOLIS BOULEVARD AND THEIR ESCAPE WITH $ 20,376 IN CASH. THE TRAGIC MURDER OF POLICE OFFICER PATRICK O'MALLEY IS UNIVERSALLY MOURNED BY CITIZENS AND MEMBERS OF THE DEPARTMENT.

MANY VERSIONS OF THE HOLDUP AND ROBBERY WERE GIVEN BY EYE-WITNESSES TO THE ENTIRE AFFAIR AS THE BNDITS LITERALLY HAD TO FORCE THEIR WAY THROUGH A CROWD OF CURIOUS PERSONS TO REACH THEIR MACHINE. THE BANDITS ARE DECLARED TO HAVE BEEN JOHN DILLINGER AND JOHN HAMILTON, MEMBERS OF THE CONVICT GANG FROM THE INDIANA PRISON BREAK WHO HAVE TERRORISING THE CHICAGO REGION FOR MONTHS. THEY ESCAPED THROUGH HAMMOND TO THE ILLINOIS LINE AND WERE FOLLOWED FROM THE CITY BY A SECOND CAR. IT WAS ESTABLISHED THIS MORNING.

THE BANDIT CAR ARRIVED AT THE BANK ABOUT 2:30 O'CLOCK ACCORDING TO WITNESSES, AND SPENT ABOUT 20 MINUTES CIRCLING AROUND INDIANAPOLIS AND CHICAGO AVENUE BEFORE THE ROBBERY. THE CAR WAS SEEN TO DRIVE ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE STREET AND WAS PARKED A FEW FEET FROM THE BANK DOOR ON THE SOUTH SHORE RAILROAD TRACKS.

THE TWO MEN ENTERED THE BANK WITHOUT ATTRACTING NOTICE, AND THE BANDIT DECLARED TO HAVE BEEN HAMILTON ANNOUNCED: "THIS IS A HOLDUP. EVERYBODY GET BEHIND THE CAGES WITH WOMEN AND CHILDREN ON ONE SIDE SO THAT THEY DON'T GET SHOT" DILLINGER WAS HOLDING A LIGHT MACHINE GUN BY HIS SIDE AND BROUGHT IT INTO VIEW THREATENING PATRONS AND BANK EMPLOYEES WHO HURRIED TO ANSWER THE ORDER.

VICE PRESIDENT WALTER SPENCER OF THE BANK WAS STANDING BY HIS DESK TALKING TO THE UNION NATIONAL BANK IN INDIANA HARBOR AND HE SAID OVER THE PHONE. "WE'RE HELD UP".

HE REACHED TO PUT THE PHONE DOWN AND PRESSED THE ALARM IN THE CITY HALL POLICE STATION. TWO WOMEN WERE STANDING BY HIS SIDE TO SELL HIM SOME TICKETS TO A CHURCH FETE AND THE BANDITS FIRST OVERLOOKED HIM.

DILLINGER TURNED HIS GUN ON SPENCER AND ORDERED HIM TO HIS SIDE. "COME ON, MR. PRESIDENT, HE SAID, YOU'RE GOING TO BE MY SHIELD." IN A FEW SECONDS THE BANK FLOOR HAD BEEN CLEARED, AND DILLINGER ORDERED HIS COMPANION INTO THE CAGES. HAMILTON WAS CARRYING A BAG AND BRANDISHING AN AUTOMATIC PISTOL. HE LAID THE GUN DOWN. "TAKE YOUR TIME AND GET EVERYTHING." DILLINGER HIM.

SEVERAL CUSTOMERS ENTERED THE BANK DURING THE TIME OF THE ROBBERY AND WERE HEARDED WITH THE REST OF THE VICTIMS INTO THE CAGES. AMONG THESE WAS Mrs. Margaret O'Toole, MOTHER OF ONE OF THE BANK CLERKS.

LOUIS DICKSON, A MERCHANT STARTED IN THE BACK DOOR OF HTE BANK FROM INDIANAPOLIS BOULEVARD AND SAW THE HOLDUP IN PROGRESS. HE ESCAPED. THE BANDITS WERE UNHURRIED AND WHEN THE ALARM SOUNDED IN THE POLICE STATION OFFICERS O'MALLEY AND HOBART WILGUE, JULIUS SCHRANKO AND PETE WHALEN WERE JUST LEAVING THE CITY COURT AND WERE DISPATCHED THE SCENE. WILGUS WALKED INTO THE BANK AND WAS CONFRONTED DILLINGER AND.....................(This all the article I received in the mail from Tom O'toole. Pat Connolly)
