Laura Cecile DONALD was my great-grandmother. She was the daughter of James Calvin DONALD and Elizabeth Jane WALLACE
James Calvin DONALD was the son John DONALD and Nancy MACHETTE
John DONALD was the son of James DONALD and Jennie MCCORKLE. He was the great-grandson of Matthew DONALD and Eliabeth LYLE who are members of families that originally settled in Rockbridge, Virginia
I have been able to piece together a lot of the DONALD and LYLE family tree from a book published in 1912 about the LYLE’s in early Virginia.
