South Haven’s Second Lighthouse Keeper To Be Honored This Week


Water Road in South Haven may have an honorary identify added to it this week. The town council just lately gave the go-ahead to call the road Captain Donohue Drive for Civil Battle Captain James Donohue. After dropping a leg within the conflict, he was employed as South Haven’s second lighthouse keeper on the age of 32 in 1874. Among the many no less than 15 lives he’s credited with saving have been his two sons, and in a few of these rescues, he dove into the water personally to tug somebody to security. The town will maintain a ceremony at three p.m. tomorrow on the intersection of Water and Kalamazoo streets on the high of the hill to unveil the brand new indicators. Donohue died in 1917 and is buried at South Haven’s Lakeview Cemetery. Friday’s ceremony is open to the general public.
