'''The Black Donnellys''' is the common nickname of the Donnelly family who emigrated from County Tipperary, Ireland, to Canada in about 1845–1846, and who participated in a notorious feud in Biddulph Township (Biddulph Township, Ontario) in Middlesex County (Middlesex County, Ontario), Ontario (Ontario, Canada), which culminated in a massacre in which five family members were killed, February 4, 1880. Despite eyewitness testimony, no one was convicted of the crime. Ross was born in Nairn (Nairn, Ontario), in Middlesex County (Middlesex County, Ontario), Ontario. His grandfather was part of Duke Wellington's body guard at Waterloo (Battle of Waterloo), and was an escort to Napoleon Bonaparte on his exile to St. Helena.

He served on the Winnipeg City Council for eight years, the Winnipeg School Board for twenty-three years, and the Winnipeg Public Parks Board for eleven years. Montague was born in Adelaide (Adelaide, Ontario), in Middlesex County (Middlesex County, Ontario), Canada West (now Ontario). He was educated at Woodstock College and the Toronto School of Medicine, and received a medical degree from Victoria University (Victoria University in the University of Toronto) in 1882. Montague was a member of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, and a licentiate of the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh, Scotland. He was born in London, Canada West (London, Ontario) on May 13, 1843, Perry, Powell 2006, pg. 295 the son of Captain William Mackintosh, of Wicklow, Ireland, an Irish (Ireland)-born officer posted to Canada with the British Army's Ordnance Department (Board of Ordnance), who later served as County Engineer for Middlesex County, Ontario. Mackintosh's paternal grandfather was Captain Duncan Mackintosh, a Scotsman who had been sent to Ireland with the British Army's Highland regiment (Scottish regiment) during the Irish Rebellion of 1798. After the Rebellion, he bought an estate in County Wicklow, and in 1802, married, at Dublin, Alicia Weldon, who is variously described as being the daughter of Lady Weldon, and a niece of the Earl of Dysart, though which ones are meant is not specified. C.H. Mackintosh's mother was Leonora Sophia (d. 1891), daughter of Col. Dickinson, of Jamaica, British West Indies. Through the maternal line, Mackintosh claimed to be close kin to Sir Stamford Raffles, founder of Singapore, one of whose sisters was called Leonora, and one of whose half-aunts, Elizabeth Raffles, married William Carter, Esq., of Jamaica. Paternally, he claimed to be a near relation of the essayist and politician, the Right Honourable Sir James Mackintosh, who was member of the Kellachie (Kyllachy) branch of the Inverness-shire-based Clan Mackintosh, part of the Scottish Highlands Chattan Confederation. In addition to C.H. Mackintosh's grand, if vague, ties to the ruling class, there is occasional confusion with another Mackintosh author, Charles Henry Mackintosh (1820–1896), a prolific Plymouth Brethren author and evangelist, who was known principally by the initials, C.H.M. (C.H. Mackintosh), which happen to coincide with those of the present subject. Details in this second man's biography indicate that the elder and younger C.H. Mackintoshes were possibly uncle and nephew, or, at least, related (see References). '''CHST-FM''' is a Canadian (Canada) radio station, broadcasting at 102.3 FM (FM radio) in London, Ontario.
