OBITUARY - MRS. JOHN KAVANAGH

In common with her vast number of friends and acquaintances we regret to record the death of Mrs. Rosanna KAVANAGH, widow of the late John KAVANAGH (for many years senior partner of Hearn & Co. of this city), which occurred on Saturday afternoon. The deceased lady, who had reached the advanced age of seventy six years, suffered with great fortitude a tedious illness of many months which she bore patiently up to the hour of her death, when surrounded by her family she received the sacraments of the roman Catholic Church and resigned her soul into God's keeping. She is survived by six daughters, Misses Jen, Rose, Alice, Bride, Agnes, wife of Capt. Thos. F. SULLIVAN, Lillian, wife of W. J. O'NEILL, two sons, Patrick and James.
By the passing of this estimable lady a link with the past is broken and the community which share in her charitable and kindly disposition is so much the poorer. The funeral took place yesterday from her late residence, 23 Colonial Street.
From an article I recently transcribed, this lady's maiden name was apparently Rosanna Hynes. I don't believe I have any connection to her but thought I'd post this in case it's of help to someone else.

Colonist   December 6, 1887 (Tuesday)

Terrible Accident on Railway Track. A Man and Woman Lose Their Lives.
A sad accident occurred on the railway track yesterday afternoon, by which a man and a woman lost their lives. The following facts of the case were ascertained from Captain Nobel, at the Fort William Depot this morning: "Yesterday was apy day for the section hands on the road, and a special train was sent out with the paymaster. The train went right through to Harbour Grace, and was returning when the accident occurred. The hour Was 3.25 p.m., and the place was near Cat Hills - about three miles from Brigus Junction. When rounding a curve, on an up-grade, the train conductor saw a trolly approaching, with five persons on board. The brakes were applied to the train as quickly as possible; and it slowed up considerably; but the trolly could not be stopped, coming down the grade, and dashed into the train with frightful force. Previous to the collision three persons on the trolly jumped off, but the remaining two were so paralyzed by fear that they could not summon courage enough to jump.
When the collision occurred the trolly was smashed to atoms, and the two unfortunate persons on board were thrown high into the air. They struck on their heads some distance away. The fall caused concussion of the brain, from which they have both since died. One was a man, the other a woman. The former was William Kennedy, of Salmon Cove; the latter, Mary Conners [sic], of Conception Harbour. The train was stopped and both taken on board, to be brought to the hospital. Poor Kennedy died before reaching St. John's, but the woman lived until this morning, when she died in the hospital. Both were unmarried, and were under twenty years of age. The other three persons who jumped the trolly escaped with slight injury. The men were section hands, and, having overtaken Miss Connors [sic] on the road, were giving her a lift towards home. The trollys are being constantly used by the section hands, in moving from station to station. No blame attaches anywhere. Simply a special train was not expected at the hour, nothing more."
