Death of Mrs. Margaret Donahue
Died, Nov. 8th 1892 in the 74th of her
age. Mrs. Margaret Donohue, relict of
the late John Donohue of the township
of Godmanchester, Huntingdon County.
It is only a few weeks since we had to
chronicle the death of the deceased lady's
brother, Mr. Patrick Walsh, of the same
place. Mrs. Donohue was the mother of
twelve children, of whom ten survive her.
Five of the family, three sons and two
daughters are settled in California, two
daughters in Brooklyn; a daughter at
Godmanchester, where deceased breathed
Her last; and two daughters; viz., Mrs.
Wm. McKay and Mrs. John O'Leary in
this city. The deceased lady emigrated
from County Meath, in her teens and
settled with her brothers in the
township where she brought up her large
family and where she breathed her last.
For many years she traveled extensively
Through Canada and the United States
visiting her children on two separate oc-
casions in California and Carson City,
Nevada; where she remained several
years. Only last May she returned to
this city from Brooklyn, in company
with her niece, intending to return there
again last September. The sickness of a
beloved brother whose deathbed she
watched over with unremitting atten-
tion prevented her return to Brooklyn,
and culminated in her own death at the
old much loved homestead where
she breathed her last on the 8th inst.
Mrs. Donoghue was well known in this
City among the Rev. Clergy and good
Nuns. She was active and exemplary
member of many religious confraterni-
ties and sodalities. She never missed the
Sunday or Holyday Mass when the
church was within reach. The funeral
which was largely attended by her
children and grandchildren, relatives
friends and neighbors, took place on Fri-
day the 11th inst. From the old home-
stead to St. Joseph's Cemetery, Hunting-
don, where sleep the remains of a good
and devoted husband awaiting the final
judgment, whom she espoused over half a
century ago. We extend our sympathy to her
Family and relatives in the hour of their
Bereavement, and pray God to have
Mercy on the soul of the deceased lady.
