Jennie (sometimes spelled Jenny and christened Jane) Donnelly was the only girl in a family of seven boys. She was born in 1858, the year after her father James Donnelly had killed Patrick Farrell. She had been conceived while James was in hiding from the law. She did not meet her father until 1865 when he was released from the Kingston Penitentiary. Unlike her brothers, Jennie had few run-ins with legal authorities. As a young woman she married James Curry (sometimes spelled Currie) and moved to Glencoe, so she was not at her parents' home the night of the murders. Jennie died in 1916.
