Obituary in Mountain City Newspaper:
On last Saturday morning the sad news of the death of Dr. Robert L. Donnelly which occurred at his home one mile north of the city, was carried to his many relatives and friends throughout this section. He was the second of thirteen children, born to Richard and Rebecca Donnelly, ten of whom survive him. He was born Jan. 10, 1822. In early life he showed a marked preference for the medical profession and began his studies under Dr. Gaston Powell. By earnest and preserving work he prepared himself to enter upon the practice of his chosen profession soon after reaching his majority, and he has for more than forty years, faithfully discharged the responsibilities thrust upon him. Never having married and not being burdened by family cares he devoted all of his leisure time to the acquirement of knowledge; and as a result he was known as one of the brainiest, most thoroughly informed men to be found in this entire country. In business affairs his was equal to a bond. Religiously he was a Methodist. Surely a useful man has fallen, one who will be greatly missed in this section. His body was buried in the family cemetery near his home last Sunday Morning, a vast concourse of friends witnessing the last sad rites. May the blessings of a compassionate Father rest with his bereaved kindred.
