HAUGHERY, Margaret, philanthropist, born in Baltimore, Maryland, early in this century; died in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1882. Her maiden name was Gaffney. She came to New Orleans with her husband about 1836, and after his death became a domestic at, the orphan asylum. When the Sisters opened a second institution she took charge of their large dairy. But she soon associated herself with all their labors, and it was principally due to her efforts that the asylum reached a sound financial condition. As soon as the institution was out of debt she established a dairy, and entered into business on her own account. In 1866 she opened a bakery in the heart, of New Orleans. She made money rapidly, but still drove about with her bread cart, as she had done with her milk-wagon, and was known as "Margaret, the orphans' friend." All that she made was spent on the orphans. After her death her statue was erected in New Orleans. It was unveiled on 9 July, 1884.
