James O’Donnell, per Isabella I (1823), Tried at Kerry Co., 1823, 7 years, Died at sea, of old age and debility, 1823.
ADM 101/36/3 . Medical and surgical journal of the Isabella Convict Ship, for the 4 July to 24 December 1823 by Mr William Rae, Surgeon and Superintendent, during which time the said ship was employed in a voyage to Port Jackson, New South Wales.
Folios 6-7: James O’Donnel, aged 66, Convict; disease or hurt, exhaustion almost solely from the causes of nature [old age]. Put on sick list, 1 September 1823, at sea. Died 4 September 1823. The Surgeon complains of the Superintendent of the Hulk at Cove offering this man for a voyage he was very unlikely to survive and on which he will use up valuable supplies for the sick. He objected to two other old men offered for the voyage, one who did not have a single tooth left.
