MARY DONAHOE NOVEMBER 23, 1888
At one oclock a.m. this (Friday) morning Mary Donahoe died at her home in Charlotte township, aged 24 years. For the past two years the dreaded disease, consumption, had been preying upon the vital forces of this young lady, and it was seen by her relatives and friends who cared for her that slowly, but surely, life was ebbing away. Deceased was born in La Salle county, Illinois, and was the daughter of Thomas Donahoe, deceased, by his second marriage. When she was but a small child her father moved to this county, where she grew to womanhood, and her many acquaintances will learn of her early death with feelings of great sadness. She, with her two two brothers, Charles and James, made their home on the Jno. McCarty farm in Charlotte township. Though an orphan, both father and mother having preceded her to the final home, all the kind relatives, friends and neighbors could do, was done for her comfort, which was highly appreciated by the patient sufferer. The funeral will be at 10 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday).
