The Donaldsons


Two brothers from Ravenna made a place for themselves in Mulberry:

Pierce (1897 - 1957) married Mandy Parks in 1919.

Eldon (1916 - 2004) married Ruby Lynn Price in 1937.

William Allen Donaldson (1877-1971) and Sarah Elizabeth Gordon (1880-1972)

Eldon and Ruby Lynn in Ravenna

Mandy lived for many years a widow at the Parks home place in Mulberry.

Eldon was frequently Sunday school

superintendent at the Methodist

church. He was president of the

Mulberry Community Improvement

Club, and vouched for me in the

army (1961) to receive a “top secret”

security clearance. “Thank you.”
