Private William W Mac Donald
Born at sea in 1832, lived in Ft Edward, N. Y. , enlisted May 1 O 1861 in Co B 22 N Y
Infantry. Saw action in Fredericksburg, Sulphur Springs, Bull Run and Antietam.
Not on North Castle census of 1860. Honorably discharged June 19 1863 in Albany.
Died August 24 1864. Family stone.
He is not on the North Castle Town Clerk's roster, not on Adjutant General's N Y Data
He is, however, on his regiment's roster ( Mc Donald) and is 8620 on the W. P.A.
location and on their file card.
His gravestone could not be found because it is so eroded, but in Fall, 2012, it was
discovered next to William and Hannah Mac Donald (who are not his parents)
Because of the eroded inscription, the photo above shows its location by at the stone
wall and its orientation to the George Lovelett stone.
