Thomas “The Black Donnellys” Donnelly

Members of a mystery-shrouded family known as the ‘Black Donnellys’ and believed, in Canadian folklore, to have been been the source of ‘bad luck’ that befell the town of Lucan, Ontario. The family feuded with townfolk for 33 years before one fateful night when their homestead was burned to the ground, taking many members of the family with it.  While no one was ever convicted in their murders, it is widely believed that there may have been a conspiracy of silence adhered to by the town members. To this day, it is said, that the residents of Lucan refuse to talk about the Black Donnellys and that all reference to the families has been removed from the library and town records. In fact, the gravestone for the family was replaced in 1964 to remove the word “murdered.”
