1929 - In the year that Lorraine A Mcfarland was born, American Samoa officially became a U.S. territory. Although a part of the United States since 1900, the Ratification Act of 1929 vested "all civil, judicial, and military powers in the President of the United States of America".

1934 - At the age of just 5 years old, Lorraine was alive when on July 22nd, gangster John Dillinger was killed in Chicago. His gang had robbed banks and police stations, among other charges, and he was being hunted by J. Edgar Hoover, head of the FBI - although many in the public saw him as a "Robin Hood". A madam from a brothel in which he was hiding became an informer for the FBI and, after a shootout with FBI agents, Dillinger was shot and died.

1936 - When she was only 7 years old, on November 3rd, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was reelected to a second term.

Upon leaving, a helicopter collided with a transport plane and the men were killed.
