I was born 1935, in Hart County, Canmer, Ky. and my parents were Henry and Bernice Sturgeon McDonald. I am the oldest, and had two brothers and a sister: Wesley, Glenda and Joe. Dad was a house painter and mother was a homemaker. There were just two stores in the town of Canmer. We moved to Munfordville when I was in the first grade and when I was in the 5th grade we moved to Buffalo in LaRue County. I went to Buffalo School which was grades one through 12 and I graduated from Buffalo. There were 19 in our graduating class.
