Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 4, 1823
Richmond County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jan. 19, 1892
Richmond County
North Carolina, USA

Daniel Oliver McDonald was the eldest child of Mary Polly Oliver and Scotsman, Daniel McDonald. Daniel Oliver was 18 when his father died in January 1842.

In the 1850 US Federal Census, he is found living in the Samuel Gibson household. His sister, 12-year old Abbie, is living in the large household of Bethrine and Abigail McKenzie. Their 45-year old mother was living alone but next door to their brother John age 21, who is also listed alone. Brother William is found living and working as a teacher in the R. T. Long household. Sisters, Mary and Katie, were married.

By 1860, Daniel was living in Steeles Township in the northwest corner of Richmond County. Also in the home was his mother Mary.

A marriage bond was secured on 6 May 1866 for his marriage to Margaret Ann "Maggie" Long. They became the parents of eight chidren.

Later census records show the family living in Beaver Dam Township, where Daniel's father had originally built a large family home in the early 19th century. Descendants live in this area in the 21st century.

*Calculated relationship
We miss thee from our home, dear;
We miss thee from thy place;
A shadow o'er our life is cast;
We miss the sunshine of thy face.
We miss thy kind and willing hand.
Thy fond and earnest care;
Our home is dark without thee;
We miss thee everywhere.
