There have been quite a few books written about "The Black Donnellys", a Donnelly family who lived near Lucan, Ontario. There were conflicts in the community and they were blamed for a number of the problems. Five members of the family were murdered by vigilantes on the night of Feb. 4 1880, and despite some eye-witness testimony, I don't think anyone was ever convicted. If you are related to those Donnellys, you may have already seen this, but if not, you will likely find information you can use.
