Donald was married to Sarah Homer on 14 Jan 1924. They had three children: Robert Eugene, Joan Arlene, and Charlene who only lived one day (June 5-June 6, 1928). The marriage then unraveled, and they divorced probably in 1929. Sarah re-married, to Earl Edward Despain, and his children stayed with their mother. Sarah and Earl are buried at Kewanee. Don took care of his widowed mother until her death in 1934. His occupation was a mail carrier for the US Postal Service.
