Today was a hard day. I was really irritable today. I am so ready for this Coronavirus to go away. I wish it would peak already.
I tried to find historical records for Thomas Donaldson in Rutherford Co, NC on Family Search today but had no luck. I then moved on the SC Department of Archives and History website online record search. I found a land deed for John Hall in the index. One of people listed on the estate record was a Mrs. Donaldson. The land deed was dated 1803. I am thinking “Mrs. Donaldson” is William Donaldson’s (Thomas Donaldson’s brother) wife. I filled out a online research request to order the land deed. I am sort of hoping they will email me the deed because less germs will be spread that way. We will see.
Here’s hoping that April is better month than May!
***Update….I know who Mrs. Donaldson is! It is Jenny Donaldson, widow of Matthew Donaldson. I can’t find any evidence that ties Matthew Donaldson to Thomas Donaldson. I am grateful that particular mystery is solved.
