JESSE McDONALD PASSES ON AT 86 (Pioneer)

Jesse McDonald, another pioneer of the northwest, and of Kittitas valley, died at his home
near the city Saturday night, his ailment being old age, as he was 86 years old, having been
born in Missouri in 1831. He "crossed the plains" with his parents in 1852 and 20 years later,
in 1872 arrived in Kittitas valley and has ever since made his home here. He leaves two
daughters, Mrs. C. E. CRANE and Mrs. W. B. PRICE, and three sons, Ed and Archie of this valley,
and Al, who lives in Nevada. His wife also survives him. Mrs. HANNA of the east side is a
sister. Few men have had a wider acquaintence in this section than Mr. McDONALD had, and his going
leaves a deep gap in the ranks of the real pioneers of Kittitas, by whom he was held in high
esteem. Except to serve a term as county comissioner back in the 90's, Mr. McDONALD never
sought or held office and his life was spent quietly among his neighbors and with his family.
Owing to advancing age he had been little seen of late years. The funeral took place from the
Christian church Tuesday afternoon and was largely attended.
