We attended the Jonas Reunion near Huntsville, Utah earlier this month. After playing for a couple of days, we headed home. My poor family knows no trip is complete without a stop at a cemetery. Here are some photos for our Ogden City Cemetery stop.
The first set of graves in this picture above are of William Scott Donaldson and Mary Elizabeth Williams Donaldson. I have previously written part of their story. William Scott Donaldson was born 18 June 1865 in Joyceville, Frontenac, Ontario, Canada and died 12 September 1913 in Ogden of cancer. Mary Elizabeth Williams was born 7 April 1869 in Ogden and died 29 March 1951 in Ogden. They married 2 October 1890 in Slaterville, Utah. Their son, David Delos Donaldson, is my Great Grandfather.
The second set of graves in this picture above are of David Delos Donaldson and Berendena “Dena” Van Leeuwen Donaldson. I have previously written part of their history.
