Edna Donaby

  • The following appeared on 28 October 1903 in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle: (Niagara Falls, Oct. 27) This morning at 9 o'clock Richard Donaby, superintendent of car repairs at this point for the New York Central, dropped dead in his office at the lower Central yards. The cause of death was heart failure. He was born in England, December 5, 1835, and was, therefore, about 68 years old. He came to Niagara Falls from Albany twenty-eight years ago, and had always been in the employ of the New York Central. He was a mechanic of acknowledged ability and a man respected by all. He is survived by three daughters, Mrs. George a Watson, Mrs. Clark Shipston, Miss Edna Donaby, and one son, John. The family home is at No. 2340 Lockport Street. He was a member of Niagara River Lodge, No. 785, F. and A. M.
