He was born March 15, 1865, in Mount Pleasant township, this county, where his family are yet residing. He attended the common schools, then entered the Eastman Business College, graduating in 1885. After his graduation he worked as a book-keeper for a time, finally entering the office of Drs. McElroy & McCarrell, of Hickory, where he studied medicine for some time. He afterward entered the Western Pennsylvania Medical College, graduating in 1889, then began to practice his profession in Pittsburgh. One year later he came to Midway, this county, associating himself with Dr. Patterson, whose interests he purchased in 1891. In 1892 Dr. Donaldson was appointed physician of the Pennsylvania Railroad, west of Pittsburgh. On September 11, 1888, he was united in marriage with Jennie F. Jackson, a resident of Mount Pleasant township, to whom two children have been born, Braden Maxwell (deceased) and Mary Lucile.
