Conflagration! The Bardstown Fire of 1856

Written by Melissa Finlay, 2015


About 11 a.m. on the morning of April 12, 1856, a fire started in the town of Bardstown. The details on how it started were sketchy right from the start. Some reports claimed it started in the chimney of the house of two widowed sisters, spreading to the roof, and then down to rubbish between their home and the abandoned ten-pin-alley next door. Other reports claim the flames began in the rubbish pile and spread to the chimney and roof of the house. Regardless of the true origin of the fire, it devastated the whole community, and the Donohoo family in particular.
 
The weather was windy on this day, causing the flames to leap and spread to nearby buildings nearly faster than they could be evacuated. The fire wagon was brought out, but was somehow in ill repair and unable to help in the effort at all. The mayor of the city sent out a plea for help from other towns, but none were able to respond in time. Within three hours time, the entire south-east portion of the city was reduced to smoking embers. 

\"Where stood stately
edifices before, nothing remains now but
crumbling walls and smouldering ruins.
The devouring element was so swift in
its career, that the citizens, although using
almost superhuman exertions, could not
do anything towards rescuing the con-
tents of the dwellings.\"
‎(\"Immense Conflagration.\" Lebanon Post (Lebanon, KY)‎ 16 April 1856.)

Most families were not even able to salvage any of their household goods from the swift fire. None of the families had insurance to cover their losses. The devastation of the fire was reported throughout Kentucky, and as far away as New York and Chicago. Nearby communities, such as Louisville, called for fundraisers to help the devastated citizens of Bardstown. They formed committees to help with this fundraising effort, and the Catholic Bishop, Bishop Spalding led the way by donating $50 to the cause. The St. Joseph's College in Bardstown donated $100 towards the rebuilding of the Methodist Church, and $100 towards the aid of the orphans and widows.

 
About 20 families were effected by this fire ‎(this chart, compiled from all the reports listed in sources below, may or may not be accurate, as reports did conflict with each other)‎:

Bardstown Fire Losses 

J.C. Matthew: House
Mrs. Turner: House valued $500, on which she had just made last payment, lost all furniture, clothing, etc.
Dooney: 2 houses
Nath'l Wickliffe: Dwelling house valued at $450, occupied by Mr. Gossin who lost all belongings
Mrs. Gebway ‎(Widow Gibson)‎: House, furniture, valued at $2,000
C.W. Hill: Dwelling and office
McCoon: House
Methodist Church: Valued $2,000
J.C. Wickliffe: Residence, furniture, valued at $3,000
Old school house
Alex Moore: Residence, furniture, valued $650-$800
Mrs. McAters ‎(Widow McAtee)‎: Residence, furniture, valued $400
M. Donohue: House in which father, etc. resided, lost most household goods, house valued $650
Frien: Old barn & stables
James Hite: House, ten-pin-alley ‎(Old Green Tavern)‎, valued $750
I.C. Mattingly: Frame tenement adjoining residence, valued $500
Rev. R.A. Abel: Dwelling house valued at $500, occupied by Robert Mattingly who lost all personal belongings
Doom and Brother: Frame house, double tenement valued at $500, resided in by Mrs. Cook and Mrs. Jacobson
G.W. Hite: Dwelling, furniture, etc., valued at $12,600
Dr. B.R. McCown: House, furniture, provisions, valued $4,000
Mrs. Caldwell ‎(formerly Miss Breckenridge)‎: Dwelling house valued $400-$500; occupants Mr. Thomas Neal, Mrs. Cotton, Mrs. Cox lost all belongings

The Donohoo family was keenly effected by this fire; their losses were very high. The home that was indicted as the possible cause of the fire was owned by Michael Donohoo, but resided in by Patrick Donohoo, daughter Mary Donohoo, his widowed daughters Margaret Frilling and Sarah Ann Bishop, grand-daughters Susan and Mary A. Bishop and son John W. Another home reduced to rubble belonged to his third widowed daughter, Catherine Turner and her four sons. She reportedly had just paid her last payment on the home and was unable to retrieve any personal belongings. All told, twelve members of the Donohoo family were left homeless by this fire.
