Obituary of J. C. McDonald, Craig City, Virginia.

The death, on December 22, 1914, of Col. J. C. McDonald, at Craig City, Va., removes from that community one of its most distinguished citizens, a Confederate veteran, Christian gentleman, upright, neighbor, and friend.

Colonel McDonald was born March 14, 1831, and had nearly completed his eighty-fourth year. In the War between the States he began his service as captain of Company K,22d Virginia Infantry Regiment, afterwards becoming colonel of the 22d. He disbanded his regiment at Christiansburg, Va., after the surrender. In the early eighties he became interested in the development of Craig County, Va., and later moved his family there from Hinton, W. Va. He was a model citizen, kind and generous. Due to the disabilities of age, for the past several years he was confined to his home, where he received every attention that a devoted daughter could bestow. He is survived by three daughters and one son.
