About Mary Ann O'DONNELL (Monagnan)

Upon Mary Ann O'Donnell's death in 1914, funeral services were held at the Old Cathedral, after which her body was buried at Immaculate Conception Catholic Cemetery. A newspaper clipping states: "More people attended the graveside service for Mrs. O'Donnell than for any other person in Knox or Lawrence counties. Those who owned automobiles conveyed 256 (people) from Vincennes to Bridgeport for the last rites. For those who did not have their own transportation, the family provided a special train from Vincennes to Bridgeport." 288 people took advantage of the rail transportation. Her obituary referred to her as the "wealthiest woman in the two counties."
