    • Josephine perished in the Brechin Hotel fire.

      About 1:30 am, on March 17, 1914, Charles McNarney, a bartender of the Brechin Hotel was awaken by smoke , and he gave alarm to the fifteen people in the hotel. By that time the whole basement of the hotel had been burnt away. Some made their escape through windows, and some by a back stair. Their rescue was effected by Victor Adair, Charles McNarney and Patrick McLean, boarders in the hotel.

      The Orillia Times newspaper account of the fire tells of three maids sleeping in a room on the third floor, Miss Maggie McNarney, Miss Etta Crosby and Miss Josie Callaghan. The former two jumped from the window and were more or less injured by the fall. Miss Callaghan seemed to lack the nerve to follow their example, and while she hesitated it is supposed she was overcome by smoke and fell back into the burning building.
