Grandma Mae Whitaker divorced her husband William. In those days to go out on your own and support 3 young kids must have been very hard. She worked as a cook in the logging camps. She met and married George Donaldson Sr. He had a son George Jr. Donaldson and George Jr. and Gladies created Delbert Donaldson. George Jr. was not fond of that idea so ran off to Mexico. Big George brought him home by the scruff of his neck and forced him to marry Gladies.
