Description

In this slightly belated Memorial Day episode of Genealogy By Tim G., I remember the life and service of David Kline Donley, who perished during World War I in September of 1918 at Prauthoy, France. A park in the city of Lancaster was recently re-dedicated to his memory and to those of 13 other soldiers from the city's Sixth Ward.
