From Geneva Daily Times 1 December 1906

James P. McDonnell,
of Hamilton street, was struck and instantly killed by a car on the Rochester and Eastern Rapid Railway last night. The accident occurred between Hopewell and Spangle street crossing at about 11:20 o'clock. The man was struck by Car No. 1 in charge of Motorman D. M. Rhodes. The motorman saw McDonnell on the track walking toward Canandaigua. He sounded the warning signal and the man stepped from the track. At the point where the accident took place there is a rather deep ditch along side the track and as McDonnell stepped from the track he apparently went into this ditch and in trying to recover his balance was thrown back over toward the track, for as the car approached, he fell almost directly in front of it. It was only a second from the time the warning signal had been given until the car was at the place where the man had been seen and so as he fell back on the track the car was upon him. The car was stopped immediately and then it was found that McDonnell had been struck in the right temple and killed instantly. Coroner Warner of Canandaigua was notified. The coroner left on a special car and had the body removed to the Case & Brady undertaking rooms in Canandaigua. McDonnell was identified by papers found in his pocket. The remains were brought here this morning.

The only mystery in regard to the affair is as to how McDonnell got to the spot where he met his death. He was employed as a plumber at the shop of Emig and Hatmaker and worked as usual yesterday. In conversation with one of his companions yesterday afternoon, he stated that he intended going to Canandaigua in the evening. It was known that he frequently visited friends in Canandaigua and as he did not state that there was any particular reason for his going last evening, the men thought little of the matter. This morning when they came to work they received the first news of his death. He was a general favorite with the men and the news came not only as a surprise but as a shock. The impression among the men was that he had a ticket for the trip and thought that it was a ticket for Canandaigua until after he was on the car, an that he either got off at Seneca Castle or was put off the car and then started to walk to Canandaigua expecting to return on the last car. No one who had seen him after eight o'clock could be found this morning and just how he came to be on the track at the point of the accident will probably not be known until after the coroner's inquest. Another theory which is advanced is that McDonnell had several friends who lived in the vicinity of Seneca Castle and that he stopped off to visit them during the early part of the evening and that he was on his way to one of the railroad crossings in order to get a car either back to Canandaigua or Geneva. A duplex ticket from Seneca Castle to Geneva was found in one of his pockets.  Burial St. Patrick's Cemetery.

A Sad Death -
Our community was for a third time in a few days grieved to hear of death among our young people.  Only one year ago Anna Pearce and Charles McDougal were united in marriage.  Last week a child was born to them, and the mother, apparently, approached convalescence.  This evidence was of short duration, however, and yesterday morning, at about five o'clock, Mrs. McDougal died.  Words can hardly express our sympathy for the afflicted husband and relatives.  A fond and loving spirit, gone to its rest, has made a void that years can never fill.

He was Chaplain of the Lodge at the time of his death. His funeral was attended at St. John's Church at 3:.0 o'clock yesterday afternoon, where the beautiful service of that church was observed. From the church the Masonic fraternity took charge, and the subsequent proceeding was in accordance with the solemn and impressive Masonic ceremonies, and the remains were laid away to rest by the brethren with whom he had for so many years held not only social, but fraternal Masonic intercourse.

In the death of James McFeggan, who died from general debility at his home on Gibson street last Saturday, one of the survivors of the coterie of men who were with the New York Central railroad in its early days, was removed. Mr. McFeggan quit railroading June 1, 1892, after a continuous service of 45 years in various capacities, since which time he had resided in this village and vicinity. He was born in Beauharnois, Lower Canada, March 28, 1829. When a mere lad he went to Ogdensburg and saw something of the Patriot war of 1837-38. He began the railroad life in 1847, in the humble capacity of assisting in the grading for the first "T" rail laid between Geneva and Canandaigua on the Auburn road, which was then known as the Auburn and Rochester railroad. Then he became a roadman under William G. Lapham, the company's chief engineer. Later he carried mail between the Geneva post office and the railroad station, besides doing duty at that point as baggage master. A short time afterward when the "main line" went through from Rochester to Syracuse, he was appointed station master at Newark and "broke in" the agents at Palmyra, Lyons, Clyde and Jordan on the direct road. A short time afterward he was appointed agent at Canandaigua and held that position for nine years. Dean Richmond then appointed him agent at Suspension Bridge and he was there for 16 years. In 1880 he was made general western freight agent for the company with headquarters in Buffalo. He gave this place up in 1892 on account of ill health and retired to his farm here.

Mr. McFeggan was a prominent and useful member of the Masonic order. He was master of Canandaigua lodge for six years and of Frontier lodge at Niagara Falls for a like period. He was a charter member and past high priest of Chapter No. 200 at the Falls, and a member of Monroe Commander, Knight Templars, of Rochester. While at Suspension Bridge, he was frequently urged to accept public office, but the only position he ever took was a place on the board of education. He was a member of the Congregational church in this village. Mr. McFeggan's wife died last August. His survivors are one son, John McFeggan of Buffalo; one daughter, Mrs. Francis A. Burke of this city; and one brother, George McFeggan of Buffalo, a former resident here and for many years a railroad engineer. Rev. Livingston L.

Fatal Accident at Shortsville -
At Shortsville, Friday evening, occurred a sad accident which resulted in the death of James McGary of that village. Mr. McGary had been in the office of Mr. Brown during the evening assisting him at some writing and left just before the arrival of the freight train which passes that station about midnight. The train was in sight, and Mr. McGary made an attempt to cross the track before it passed. His foot caught between the rails in some way and before he could extricate himself, the train struck him, mutilating him horribly. He died Saturday morning. Mr. McGary was a lawyer by profession, and quite an active and enthusiastic democrat. His age was about 35 years.

Last Tuesday afternoon John McGary, who resides in the northern part of the town, came to the village on business, and after indulging in intoxicants to a considerable extent, started for home late in the evening. Early Wednesday morning his lifeless body was found lying beside the road near the residence of H. N. Drake, north of the village, with the lumber wagon box resting across his neck. The team had evidently run away and McGary had fallen under the wagon box as it turned over. The edge of the seat was resting upon his neck. The horses were found a short distance further north where they had apparently been checked by a collision with a telephone pole.

On Saturday evening last the police were informed that a drunken man had been seen lying on the landing at the head of the Opera House stairs. Chief Booth, who found the man dead drunk, as he supposed, asked and received assistance of Officer McPhillips and James Rockwell to carry him to the street. He was there placed in a cutter and supported in the seat by Officer McPhillips, taken to the jail. Upon the arrival of the officer with his cadaverous prisoner, Sheriff Bacon discovered that the man was dead, and he was immediately taken to the rooms of O. N. Crane, undertaker. It is a grim joke on the officers, but withal a very sad affair. It appears, from the facts brought out at the inquest held by Coroner Jewett, that the unfortunate man was Hugh McGorry, a farmer of the town of Gorham, aged 58 years. He had some time been addicted to the use of intoxicating liquors, and his family of a wife and several children had become scattered. He had been almost constantly under the influence of liquor for a week before his death. The Coroner's jury rendered a verdict that he came to his death from natural causes, superinduced by the excessive use of alcoholic stimulants.
