Charles E. Donnell (b.1864-d.after 1919) lived in St Louis 1893-1919 where he owned the CE Donnell Newspaper Co. I am looking for any information on where he came from.
What I know about him: In the 1900 and 1910 census it says he was born in Illinois to a father born in Ireland and a mother from either New York or Ireland. He married Mary Hitzelberger (b 1868 in Calif)in 1893. Children were Mildred b 1895 and William b 1899 both born in St Louis. He may have left his wife in 1919 and moved to Kansas City by 1930, my last record of him.
Because he is so hard to find in the records, I suspect he may have changed his name from Donnelly or O'Donnell but have no evidence.
