For Ontario Athletes, I suggest James "Jimmy" Stewart. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Stewart-51954. From Ontario, he was a member of the first Stanley Cup Champion Team. Also a request - can anyone find the book - The Odd Fellows' Heart by Morey Holzman? In that book, there is supposed to be a description of the importance of Stewart to the development of hockey.

Thanks Liza. I don't think I saw this article, but I will add it to Jimmy's profile. The book is not available on Amazon USA. I just checked and it is not available in Amazon Canada either. Perhaps some local library will have a copy.

P.J. DONOHUE IS TAKEN BY DEATH Well-Known Hotelman Here For Many Years Won Fame in Early Days As Coach of Oarsmen

"Following a lengthy illness Patrick J. Donohue a lifelong resident of Hamilton and former well known hotel man died at St. Joseph's hospital last evening. Thirty years ago he operated the Armory hotel on James street north where the armories now stand, and for the past 26 years had resided at the Wellington hotel at the corner of Wellington and Cannon streets. He retired from business a number of years ago. "Mr. Donohue was a keen lover of sports and when rowing was at its height about the Leander club, he coached his two brothers, Jerry Donohue of this city, and the late Dennis Donohue, who became champion oarsmen of America 1885-1889. Left to mourn his passing are one brother, Jeremiah: three sons, Thomas, Jerry, and Dennis, all of this city, and four daughters - Mrs. L. Grogan, Detroit: Mrs. H.G. Roat, city, Misses Ollie and Nona at home. His wife predeceased him 14 years ago. The funeral will be held on Tuesday morning from the Wellington hotel at 8:30 o'clock to St. Patrick's cathedral, then to Holy Sepulcher cemetery."
