Note:
From a clipping in the Worcester paper
A REMARKABLE OLD LADY December 4th, 1881
One of the largest funerals that ever occured in this city for sometime was that of Mrs. Bridget Dowd, which took place at St. John's Church today. The old lady was a native of County Sligo, Ireland and came to this city about eighteen years ago. Since coming, she has lived most of the time with her son Michael Dowd on Winter Street. She was the mother of nine children, five of whom are now living in this city. She was also the Grandmother to upward of fifty persons, fourty five of whom are now in this city and were in attendance at the funeral. It is seldom that it falls to the lot of even native New Englanders to have collected at there deathbed two generations of decendants as numerous as these. Besides this old lady was closely related by blood and marriage with all of numerous families in this city coming from that portion of Ireland and seemed to be the connecting link between all. She was possessed of a very even disposition and in spite of the seventy nine years that were weighing upon her she maintained to the last a remarkablly jovial and pleasant disposition and will be greatly missed by friends both young and old who found enjoyment in her company and in her life which was worthy of imitation.
