CONNELL/McCONNELL, Thomas (abridged)

Death of City Councilman Connell
This morning at 10 o'clock, City Councilman Thomas Connell died at his residence 122 Winneow St, in his 45th year.  Mr Connell was born in Ballylanders, County Limerick, Ireland and came to America in 1862 and settled at Pittsburg, where he pursued his trade, that of a baker.  In 1870, he married Miss Mary Murray of Pittsburg, and one year later he moved to this city and engaged in the grocery and dry goods business in South Cumberland, and up until the time of his death he had been one of Cumberland's leading merchants in that part of the city.  In 1882 he was elected to the city council and served two years. In 1890 he was elected again, and had he lived until next May he would have served four years as City councilman.  His record as a city official was pure and beyond reproach. He performed his duties in an honorable and straight forward manner, and was never known to falter once from the strict line of duty.  There have been abler men in the council, but there has never been a more conscientious one than Thomas Connell. His loss will be a great blow to the city as well as to his sorrowing family and in their bereavement they have the heart felt sympathy of the entire community.  As a father and husband he was affectionate, gentle and thoughtful. His grief stricken wife is almost inconsolable, while the ten children seem to be utterly disconsolate.  The immediate cause of his death was paralysis, but up until a few minutes of his demise his mind was perfectly clear and be talked rationally and beautifully to those around him. The funeral arrangements have not yet been completed, but in all probability the obsequies will take place Monday morning from St Patrick's church.

“Charles Cashel Connolly Dead. Mr. Charles Cashel Connolly, one of the older residents of Piedmont, and well known beyond its confines, died Sunday evening, after a short illness, at the home of Mrs.H. McDermott, on Ashfleld street, at which place he had made his home for years. Mr. Connolly was a tailor by trade, and had been in business in Piedmont in that line for many years.  He was also a writer of great ability and his many poems, besides being published by papers and magazines, were embodied in book form and issued about ten years ago. He was of a retiring disposition, and seldom mingled with the outside world, but withal was a good citizen, charitable and generous to a fault. He was never married. His funeral took place from St. Peter's Catholic Church this morning requiem high mass being celebrated by the pastor, Rev. Father Gallagher, assisted by Rev.  Father Heath. Interment was in the Catholic cemetery. A very large concourse of people at the obsequies attested the esteem in which he was held. Mr. Connolly will be missed in our neighborhood, and of him it can truthfully be said: “His life was gentle, and the elements so mixed in him 'that Nature might stand up and say to all the world, “This was a man!”

CONWAY, Mrs. Gertrude Shannon

MURDER in WESTERNPORT: Mrs. Frank Conway Shot Dead By Her Husband. Frank J. Conway; Relations Between Two Residents of South Cumberland.
About seven o’clock last night much excitement was created in this community when it was learned that Frank J. Conway had shot and instantly killed his wife in front of the Lutheran Church in Westernport. It appears that Mrs. Conway came up to Piedmont Wednesday afternoon and her husband Thursday afternoon and that they met and had some words in Piedmont early in the evening. When they met again, Mrs. Conway was in the company with a man named Turner and the husband shot her with a .32 caliber revolver, the bullet passing through her right lung and heart. The body was removed to the Council Chamber in Westernport and after a chase Turner was arrested and placed in the lock-up. The murderer escaped but gave himself up to the authorities in Cumberland this morning. An inquest is being held this morning by Coroner Conner of Cumberland and the State’s Attorney is in attendance. Conway was for several years the proprietor of a saloon on Virginia Avenue, South Cumberland. He is a man of about 32 years of age. He sold out his place of business and went to Pittsburgh where he secured a position in a barber shop some weeks ago. Mrs. Conway was formerly Miss Gertrude Shannon and was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Shannon, Cumberland. She was married a few years ago to Conway but harmony did not prevail between the two and at one time an action for divorce was filed but was afterwards withdrawn as reconciliation was affected. Two small children survive the mother. Up until a few weeks ago Mr. and Mrs. Conway resided on Woodside Avenue when again relations between them became strained and they parted.
