McDonald Shipman

Obituary of D. D. McDonald, Clio, Alabama.

After a lingering illness, D. D. McDonald died at his home near Clio, Ala., in his seventy-eighth year, and was laid to rest in the Pea River Cemetery, near the church he loved to well. He was born September 1, 1944 [1844], and joined the Confederate army at the age of eighteen years. After serving three years in Company G, 29th Alabama Regiment, he was wounded at Peachtree Creek, and was on furlough home when the war ended.

Comrade McDonald was a stanch Presbyterian, an elder in his Church, and of Scotch descent. He married Miss Lucy M. Shipman in 1879, and a son and two daughters were bore to them. He was loved and honored by all who knew him. Truly a good man has been lost to his community.
