Headline: Obituary of Oonagh Lady Oranmore and Browne

Obituary: OONAGH LADY ORAN MORE AND BROWNE, who has died aged 85, was, with her sisters, Maureen Marchioness of Dufferin and Ava and Aileen Plunket, celebrated as one of the three Guinness beauties.
Throughout her life Oonagh was adored by children, who were quick to see that here was a girl who had long ago decided never to grow up.
She was a Guinness twice over - her grandparents were cousins - and through her mother she descended from Louise de Kerouaille, mistress of Charles II. At the end of her life Oonagh returned to Ireland and her beloved Luggala, the Gothic fairytale house in the Wicklow Mountains; her father, Ernest Guinness, brother of the 2nd Earl of Iveagh, had given it to her when she was a teenage bride.
Luggala enchanted the director John Huston. "At dawn I went to the window and looked out upon a scene I have never forgotten," he wrote. "Above the lake was a mountain of black rock rising precipitously, and on its crest - like a shawl over a piano - a profusion of purple heather. I was to go back to Luggala many times, but I'll never forget the first impression. I was Ireland's own from that moment."
Luggala became the setting for one long party. Oonagh drew her guests from an endless supply of Irish talkers, jokers and musicians, and mixed them with aristocrats, theatre people and writers. Luggala's cellars were restocked four times a year.
On one occasion a lavish picnic was arranged at Glendalough in honour of Elsa Maxwell, the American socialite and gossip columnist. Miss Maxwell returned to America and wrote in her column about going to Goldilocks, where she'd seen more than one Irish fairy in a tree.
On another occasion, in the depths of winter, Lord Dunsany attempted to reach Lug gala on foot. After spending the night in the mountains he arrived at the house the next morning covered in snow and with a sack on his head, and was mistaken for a beggar.
Oonagh always tried to help her friends, and was credited with seeing that Claud Cockburn's only novel - written under the pseudonym James Helvic - was made into the film Beat The Devil. She achieved this by making sure it was the only book at John Huston's bedside when he stayed. He showed it to Humphrey Bogart, who bought the rights; Truman Capote then wrote the script.
The 1950s and 1960s were the high period of entertaining at Luggala. Oonagh was very beautiful and had many admirers, but there was no telephone at Luggala and one of her most ardent fans tried his best to keep in touch by wire. The post office was five miles away, and a boy was given a shilling for delivering telegrams on his bicycle. One day the admirer sent no fewer than four - the last one simply reading, "Goodnight darling."
On a winter's evening in 1956 a spark from the drawing room fire set the room ablaze. The fire brigade was delayed on the frosty mountain road and part of the house burned down. Oonagh's portrait by Philip de Laszlo was saved, and the next year the house was rebuilt in perfect replica.
In the park at Luggala are reminders of two of the saddest moments of Oonagh's life. The grave of her only daughter, Tessa Kindersley, who died of heart failure, aged 14; and a Doric temple in memory of her youngest son, Tara Browne, who was killed in a car crash, aged 21. His death inspired the Beatles song A Day in the Life.
Oonagh Guinness was born on Feb 22 1910, the youngest daughter of Ernest Guinness. She grew up at Glenmaroon, near Dublin, an Edwardian house in the Tudor style.
At 19 she married Philip Kindersley, the youngest son of the 1st Lord Kindersley, whom she divorced in 1936. Their children, Gay and Tessa, were made wards of the English Court of Chancery, and when Kindersley was a prisoner-of-war in Germany he heard that Oonagh had made Irish citizens of his two children, and intended to keep them in Ireland.
There followed a protracted and much-publicised legal battle before the boy, Gay Kindersley, was given to the care of his grandparents and sent to Eton. He subsequently became a champion amateur jockey under National Hunt Rules and a well-known personality on the Turf.
At 26 Oonagh married the 4th Lord Oranmore and Browne; they had three sons, one of whom died in infancy. Garech Browne, the eldest son of this marriage, which ended in divorce in 1950, is known as a patron of Irish folk music and culture and now lives at Luggala.
Oonagh married thirdly, in 1957, Miguel Ferreras, a New York dress designer of Cuban origin; this marriage also was short-lived.
She reverted to the name Oonagh Lady Oranmore and Browne, which one of her literary friends assured her might easily have come from Ronald Firbank's Valmouth, a book which she tried to read but found decidedly puzzling.

Henry WOOD, MD., was of West Coppice in the county of Shropshire. 
Wood, Henry (I270389)
Hij begon zijn loopbaan op 23 februari 1890 te Cothen; 3 jaar daarna te Rhoon. In 1896 beroepen van Rhoon en op 29 november 1896 bevestigd door zijn zwager ds. Van Noppen te Leerdam als predikant van de Hervormde Gemeente te Vriezenveen. Hij bleef te Vriezenveen predikant tot zijn overlijden in 1904 en werd vanuit zijn kerk begraven. Vanaf het jaar 1580 waren steeds één of meer leden der familie Knotnerus predikanten bij de N.H. kerk.

Bij de begrafenis van ds. J. Boer Knotnerus spraken de heeren Simpelaar, godsdienstonderwijzer, ds. Adriani van Almelo als practor van den Ring, ds. Kromsigt als voorzitter van het comité tot verspreiding aan de beginselen der confessioneele vereeninging, ds. Los van Barneveld, als een der oudste vrienden, ds. Gunning van Rijssen als vriend en ringbroeder en een der Christelijke onderwijzers, terwijl de broeder van ds. Knottnerus met een woord van hartelijken dank aan allen eindigde.

In de kerk, die tot aan de uiterste hoeken bezet was, sprak de consulent der gemeente, ds. Rijnenberg van Wierden een woord tot de bedroefde betrekkingen en tot de gemeente. Na den consulent sprak ds. Van Noppen van Scheveningen, zwager van den overledene, een deelnemen en ernstig woord. Ruim 40 jaar geleden was er een dergelijke begrafenisplechtigheid in dezelfde kerk.

Toen gold het den vader, die zoozeer in Vriezenveen geliefd was en 5 jaar werkzaam was geweest, terwijl zijn zoon alhier 8 jaar de kerk had gevierd. Met het zingen van Ps. 89 vers 8 en gebed werd de plechtigheid geëindigd.

Hugh BOSDEN was probably from the BOSDEN family of Lombe in Cheshire.
This fam ily was connected to the later family of LEECH as outlined in the
following n ote:
John BOSDEN of Lombe in cheshire is, according to a family tree
contain ing 78 names and spread over nine generations drawn up in 1657 or
1658 by a R obert LEECH Yoeman of Lombe or his son Rev.Daniel LEECH of
Attercliffe, Sheff ield, and according to a small parchment which states:
" John Leech of Lumb i n the parish of Ashton under line and County of
Lancaster.Doctor of Physick, was ye first of this family that answered in
Court to this name. The antient syrname of this ffamily was BOSDEN but
the predecessors of this John , being also practioners in Physick, were
in those
days called Leeches."
That John of BOSDEN, a hamlet now included in Hazel Grove, practised as a
doctor, thoug h not necessarily as a qualified one,and was called John the
Leche (for Leche is the old word for doctor), and later John LEECH. It is
interesting to note that the BOSDEN family survived for many generations
after this,some coruptio n to Bosson occurred but now the BOSDEN family
seems to be extinct.

Mary Florence Durham West is buried beside her husband and sons, Robert Lucien, Oscar and Hezzie West at Antioch Cemetery in Eldorado, OK. There are three generations of Wests buried there; Martha Walker Jones West beside her son, H.P. West and his three sons.

H. P. West and Mary Florence "Molly" Durham were married in Corsicana, Navarro County, TX, Feb. 4, 1886. Molly was the daughter of Lucien Homer Durham and Angeline Nash. Her father was born Feb. 20, 1837 in Fayette Co., TN. Died March 24, 1913 at Eldorado, Jackson Co., OK and was buried in the old Durham Graveyard about five miles south of Eldorado, an area then known alternatively as Red Top, or Durham community.

L. H. Durham served in the Confederate Forces as a Master Sargeant under Captain Nunn, Co. K, Young's Regiment, TX. Infantry and as a 2nd Lieutenant with Capt. Clinton Fouty's Mount Pisgah State Guards, Infantry Company, 19th Brigade, TX. Militia. His father, George G. Durham, was born in Virginia, lived at one time in South Carolina, and in 1850 was living in Fayette Co., TN, probably having arrived there around 1836. The name of his mother, Elizabeth Carroll, born ca. 1811 in York County, South Carolina. (See Durham Chapter).

Molly's mother, Angeline Nash was born Jan 30, 1834, Pike Co., IL. and died August 14, 1888, Corsicana Navarro County, TX. She is buried in the Hopewell Cemetery near Navarro, TX. Her maternal grandfather was Eleazer Nash, born Dec. 24, 1801, Granby, Hampshire Co., MA. He died testate Aug. 28, 1868 and was buried in Ward Cemetery, Navarro County, 10 miles east of Dawson and one mile east of Ward bridge over Battle Creek on Hwy 31. (See Nash Family).

Molly's maternal grandmother was Sarah Logan Nesbitt, married first to Henry Fouty in KY, to whom she bore two sons, Clinton and Montevale Fouty. Fouty died and Sarah married Eleazer Nash Jan. 8, 1832 in Pike Co., IL. Sarah was born June 19, 1806 in KY., died June 17, 1886, Navarro, Navarro County, TX. and was buried in Hopewell Cemetery. She was the daughter of James and Sarah Logan Nesbitt who married in Washington County., TN, Nov. 13, 1793.

The Nash family and the two Fouty boys moved to Red River County, TX. in 1844 and to Navarro County in 1845. Eleazer Nash is listed in Republic of Texas Poll Lists for 1846, Marion Mullins, Genealogical Publishing Co., Baltimore, 1974; p. 123.

Molly was a descendant of a long line of New England pioneers, her ancestor, Thomas Nash (1587-1658) having debarked at Boston July 26, 1637 to join the Davenport Colony. One progenitor; Lieut. Eleazer Nash (1720-1775) served in Captain Phineas Smith's Company, Colonel Porter's Regiment that marched on the "Lexington Alarm" in the American Revolution.

Molly's grandfather Eleazer Nash and his step-son, Molly's uncle, Clint Fouty, joined the California gold rush in 1849, traveling by horseback from Corsicana, TX to San Diego, CA and by ship to San Francisco. Nash returned in 1851 but Fouty was away ten years returning in 1859. Neither struck it rich. Montevale Fouty stayed home to protect the headrights.

Molly was devoted to her family and was never without a number of friends and family to dote over. One admirer had this to say about her, "Your grandmother was high quality folks. Such a hostess you never have seen! The family table was 10 or 12 feet long, maybe longer. Such food you can't imagine! I remember my mother saying that Mrs. West always put an extra plate or two on the table saying, "You never know when someone extra will drop in". and drop in they did! Her sons had a bunk room down at the barn (they called it the office), and never seemed to be without friends."

One such casual drop-in visitor may have contributed to her death. It was in late February 1929 that the Sheriff came to the farm looking for a fugitive from the law who had dropped in for a visit "down at the office". It is not clear what the man was wanted for, but it is thought not to have been very serious. Unfortunately the man ran from them and the police shot and killed him. From the ensuing excitement Mary Florence "Molly" Durham West died of a cerebral hemorrhage. She died at 9:00 A.M. Feb. 27, 1929 and was buried at Antioch Cemetery. 
Durham, Mary Florence (I366112)
Minnie L. Genung Born, 16 Nov 1861, in Madison, Lake, OH. Died, 18 Apr 1949. She married, first, Walter E. Van Gorder.
She married, second, John C. Standish. She married, third, Richard Stevart6g, before 1917 (?)67. She married, fourth, Charles Mead.
Minnie was a music student at Madison Seminary according to its 1874-5 catalogue.
She moved with her husband, Walter, to California about 1884. About two years later she returned to Madison for a visit and to consider grievances and divorce possibilities. When Walter did not reply to her reconciliation discussion she filed for divorce and married John Standish. Minnie learned years later that her father, who had opposed the marriage to Walter, did not mail the letter.
John was a widower when he married Minnie. He died leaving her with his three children by the previous marriage. Minnie then married Richard Stewart who had five or six children by a previous marriage. When Richard died he left Minnie with 8 or 9 adopted children.
Of these, Roland, son of John Standish, married her sister, Carrie's daughter, Bertha; Roy, son of Richard Stewart, married another of Carrie's daughters, Martha; and Helen, daughter of John Standish, married Wallace, son of Richard Stewart. Helen's son is said to have told his fiance that he
had only one grandmother, Minnie, the adopted mother of both
his father and mother. Information source, Eugene Bates's
letter to Muriel Bates Bristol.
Minnie was living in San Bernardino County, California as Mrs. Richard Stewart at the time of her Mother's death in 1917. Later she married Charles Mead, who left later without a divorce.
Muriel Bates Bristol visited her great aunt Minnie while in Monrovia, California in 1944 and remembers her as a diminutive charming and attractive lady.
