These Sutton County pioneers were married in Lampasas County in 1886 and came to Sonora in 1890 with their livestock. In 1895, they gave up ranching and moved into town, where they purchased the Wyatt Hotel located in the heart of the business district. After the death of George on Dec. 24, 1899, "Mrs. Mac" remodeled and renamed the hotel, calling it the Hotel McDonald. She remained the sole proprietor for over 55 years, until her death at age 86 on January 15, 1956.
Children born of this marriage were:
Estelle, Murdoch, and John Arthur.
McDonald grandchildren, by John Arthur:
Jo Alice Wehner, Jerry Stone, and Norma Lowry.
