Donnelly in 1895 death list?
Posted by: Vance Pollock (ID *****0987) Date: August 06, 2009 at 20:11:13

I am looking for any records of the family of Arthur and Anna Donnelly, who moved to MI from Lambton Co., Ontario Canada circa 1888.

The 1900 census finds Anna widowed with 7 of 10 living children still in the home in Speaker township.

Any information re: the death of Arthur and/or his burial location would be appreciated.

The only death listing for the county I have found is 1895 and it includes one Donnelly, the following:

528       Feb       1       1895       Ebur ? Donnelly       

F       W       M       92 - -       Speaker       Old Age       

Ireland       Housewife       DEAD       BLANK.

The parents of Arthur Donnelly were Hugh Donnelly and Ellen McMahon, both born circa 1820 in Ireland, so it is possible that this elderly lady who died there in 1895 is Hugh's mother. Any help in puzzling out the first name would be appreciated.
