Biography of Mart McDonald
Arizona Biographies





MART McDONALD. like his colleagues on the Board, is a pioneer, but unlike them, has never before been connected with the official life of the county. He has been identified with the ranching, mining and cattle industries of the State for nearly thirty years, and has during the entire time made his home in the northern part of Gila County. He was born in 1869, in San Bernardino, California, where his parents, John and Sarah G. McDonald, lived for many years. His father was a rancher and cattleman, who, adapting himself to conditions on the frontier, was at various times associated with many different enterprises. Mr. McDonald was educated in the public schools of California and Arizona, and shortly afterward located in Pine, then a part of Yavapai, but now in Gila County, took up a homestead and engaged in cattle business. He has since lived in that vicinity, but is now located at Payson, where he has a ranch consisting of three hundred and twenty acres, a large part of which is under cultivation. Mr. McDonld has always been a staunch Democrat, and is an ardent advocate of the progressive principles of that party. He was united in marriage eighteen years ago to Miss Oberia Gladden, and to this union have been born five children, John, Sarah, Cora, Rose, and one son, Mart, Jr.
