A John McDonald was married to Arleavia Benson on May 1, 1888, in Clarke County, Alabama.They had the following children:Sarah, b. abt 1889, William, b. abt 1890, John W. b. 6/1891, Ella Clivie,b. April, 1893, Huey b. abt October, 1897, Tinnie. b. abt May, 1900.
Arleavia Benson was a sister to my gr grandfather, Bryant Benson.She died young at about 33 years old.Bryant Benson took two of her children to raise. I think another set of my gr grandparents, the May family, also raised some McDonald children.Also, Jack Benson, another brother to Arleavia, may have raised at least one.I will have to check with my father to be sure.
I feel that your Hughie and my Huey are the same person.
