From the Chatsworth Plaindealer

APRIL 16, 1925

John W. Donovan died at his home a mile west and about 2 1/2 miles south of Chatsworth Tuesday (April 14), death being attributed to pneumonia with complications. He had been in poor health for several months but had been bedfast about ten days. Due to infected gums he had had a number of teeth extracted recently. The poison seemed to spread to his entire system and later developed into the dread disease pneumonia. His condition was not considered alarming at first but gradually grew worse until the end.
Funeral services were held this forenoon at 10 o'clock at the Catholic church and was largely attended by relatives and friends. The Knights of Columbus and Modern Woodmen lodges to which he was affiliated attended in a body and acted as an escort to and from the church. The burial was in St. Patrick's cemetery near his home.
Deceased was born in Knox county, Illinois, December 3, 1868, making him 57 years, 4 months and 19 days old. The family came to Livingston county in 1870 and settled in Charlotte township.
He was united in marriage in 1893 to Miss Anna O'Connor at LaSalle. For almost a quarter of a century they have resided on the farm where death claimed him and reared a large family and established many friendships that will endure.
The widow and the following children survive: Mrs. Elizabeth Haberkorn, Daniel, James, John, and Thomas, of this vicinity and Sister Annlee of St. Mary's, Notre Dame, Indiana.
