and character of the deceased,

Our acquaintance with Mr.
Donaldson began in the summer
of 1875, when he came to Altus.
One could not be with him long
without being impressed with
bis deeply religious nature. In
prosperity and adversity he lived
the life of a consistant Christian
He was born in Fort Smith,
June 4, 1812, and died at his
home in Altus on the 12th day
of July, 1914. His parents dying,
he drifted to Market City, where
he met a nobleman by the name
of Mr. Bender. However, be
fore the meeting of Mr. Bender,
his experiences as an orphan boy
was not unlike that of other or
phan children. Under the* hos
pitable roof of Mr Bender he
received shelter and protection,
and it was through generosity
of Mr. Bender that the boy re
ceived a common school education
Leaving Hacket City, we next
find him near Clarksville teach
ing school. At about this time
the Civil war occured, and he en
listed in a company of one hun
dred and ten, organized by ( apt
Sw agger ty of Clarksville, and he
went to the front to fight for the
right as he saw it. Right lien*
let me give an instance id' the
right as he saw it. Hi-was lieut

occasion, when the whole com

a farm house for water. In rid

that one of his men had laggt d
behind and suspecting evil of
> this mTtn, he rode back to the
• farm and there this soldier, with
revolver pointed at the aged man
of the home was telling him to
“dig up” else he would kill him.
Lieutenant Donaldson ordered
the soldier to be gone else he
would be the victim, instead of
the harmless and defenseless old
Of those who enlisted with

union, but. instead, it was bless
ed with two orphan children,
Willie Reid, who died shortly
after the wife, and the other
one, Mr. Jno. T. Hodge is today,
living with his third wife, Mrs.
Grief at the loss of the first
wife and little Willie, caused him
to think of higher things; so he
joined the Presbyterian Church
and was a member tdl 190(5 when
he connected himself with the
M. E. Church South and was im
mediately appointed superinten
dent of the Sunday school, re
organizing only two or three
weeks before he died.
’ His second wife was Miss
i Partherina Hampton, and she,
too, only lived for three or four
years, in 1.X83 he was again
, married to Miss Jennie Phillips.
, with whom he was living at the
time of his death.
During t he time of this marriage
1 they adopted a little girl, the
only child of a widowed woman,
whom they reared and educated.
’ The little tot, arriving atwoman
! hood, married a Mr. Ernest
F Hembree and from this union
i was born a little daughter, Lera,
who is now living with Mrs.
Donaldson, her mother dying
when she was, but eiven month
old. Mr. Donaldson had beer
complaining of a dizziness oi

fore his death. Thursday even

bucket and went to a neighbor’s
for a fresh bucket of water and,
drawing the water from the well,
he fainted and fell upon thestont
