Birth: Sep. 18, 1901
Death: Jul. 9, 1942

Oldest son of Luther Paul Donaldson,and brother to my grandmother Grace Donaldson Dalton. he worked in a shipyard in Galveston Texas, he had been working down in the hull of a ship on the docks, he was overcome by heat and tried to climb out at which time he collapsed, my grandmother said he died of a brain anurism. We were unable to find his headstone at the Paden cemetery where the rest of the family is buried.
If you have any information about his place of burial please email me so I can place him in the correct cemetery. Thanks.
