Anthony b 11 Nov 1888 d 19 Dec 1915 :

 The Late Mr Anthony Kelly, Summerhill, Donegal
 The death, which occurred on Sunday morning, 19 December, of Mr Anthony Kelly, son of Mr Francis Kelly, an extensive farmer, Summerhill, Donegal, will be learned

 by his numerous friends and all those who knew him with feelings of the deepest sorrow and regret, for he was extremely popular, as a result of his probity, geniality,

 and obliging manner. Deceased, who had only attained the age of twenty six, was confined to bed a few days prior to his demise, but for some months previously he

 had not been in the best of health. To prolong a life full of promise and usefulness, the best medical skill was resorted to, but it was otherwise decreed, and, surrounded

 by his sorrowing parents, brothers and sister, and strengthened by the Rites of the Catholi Church, to which he was devotedly attached, he breathed his last. His end was

 peace and calmness, a fitting, although early, close of a pious life. The funeral on Tuesday week to the family burying ground Killymard, was large and representative, a

 striking testimony to the popularity of deceased, and a demonstration of the esteem and respect entertained for his father, mother, and other members of his family. The

 chief mourners were : Francis Kelly (father), Daniel Kelly, Summerhill, and James Kelly, Co Council Office, Lifford (brothers). The Rev Daniel Coyle, PP, performed the

 burial ceremony. (Donegal News)
