Manus Henry Donnelly
was naturalized; Farmer. He Sometimes seen as 'Iverness' and 'Marmis,' possibly married a Grace?. At death, his wife was listed as Julia McCarthy, who had died before him. He died of cancer of the stomach, he was first diagnosed in 1934. He was listed as 70y 6m and 3d, at the time of his death. His residence, then, was 98 Prospect Street, Montpelier, Vermont. This structure no longer stands (as of 1993). His mother's name was listed on his death certificate as 'Gullaher' and his father as John H. Donnelly. Manus and Julia were married by Rev. Thomas Donahue, probably in Northfield.

Wilfred H Donnelly 15

Harold F Donnelly 11
Margaret G Donnelly 8 (this is one in 1930 with father and sister and bro-in-law)

In 1906 Directory for Montpelier, listed as residing on 7 Hill and working as a stone polisher.
In 1915, ditto, listed at 40 Hill, as were Ethel (book keeper), and Sarah E. (clerk).
In fact, Manus was part owner of 'Donnelly & Murley' granite company (on Granite St - or Ave), along with Joseph P. Murley.
Joseph was about 6 years younger than Manus, also b. Ireland.
1910 US Census was VERY TOUGH to track down. In fact, transcriber listed Manus as 'Mason H. Donnelly'. If not for the surname, would NEVER have found this family... other names were also butchered. Julia was Lulia, etc.
So, 1910 US Census for Dist. 293, Ward 5, Montpelier, Washington Co, VT, with such a BAD scan, only transcriber notes prove even remotely helpful:
Mason H Donnelly 46 (Manus)
Lulia E Donnelly 34 (Julia)
Eth M Donnelly 11 (Ethel)
Sarah E Donnelly 12
Jean M Donnelly 10 (John)
?? W Donnelly 8 (THIS is Grace! - YIKES!)
Withes M Donnelly 6 (Wilfred)
Danil E Donnelly 4 (Edward)
Harold F Donnelly 2
