  • Note:
    Again we are called upon to record the death of a former well-known settler, in fact a native of the township of Arthur, in the person of James O'Donnell, who was born on the O.S.R. on the 12th of October, 1843, where he resided until about 20 years ago. He then removed to Walpole tp. near Jarvis , Ont., remaining there for a few years, removing then to South Dakota, where he resided for the past sixteen years. His wife, was a native of Walpole township, predeceased him about 18 years. Three sons survive, two in South Dakota and one in Walpole, also one brother and one sister, John, grain merchant of Arthur, and Mrs. P. Shaughnessey on the homestead in Arthur township. The deceased had been in failing health for the past two years, the result of a fall from a horse which he was riding, and from the effects of which he never fully recovered. A little over a year ago he came to reside with his brother, John, where he got the best of care, until he passed away on Monday. The funeral took place on Friday morning at ten o'clock to St John's church, thence to the R.C. cemetery at Kenilworth, which is on the farm where deceased was born, and which was donated for the purpose by the deceased's father. A true man has passed away. [Obituary]

    NOTE: No mention of two daughters in South Dakota, or two daughters, Matilda buried in that cemetery or Gertrude who seems to have disappeared after the 1881 census.
