From Findagrave, McDonald Burying Ground

Henry McDonald Death: Nov. 14, 1853

aged 66 years; Henry McDonald came to Iowa in 1846 and bought the farm on which he is buried. He built a log cabin to raise his family. One day in 1847, the Indians captured Henry. A Tribal Council was held and they decided to let him go free if he could run the gauntlet and survive. Two lines of Indians formed facing each other, armed with swinging tomahawks, but he survived and was set free. In November 1853, he became ill and knowing he would die, he had his sons drive him to the plot near the road. He told the sons, "I'm going to die. Bury me at this spot near the road so that as folks drive by they'll not forget my grave." However the roads were changed. The lone marker still stands. It reads: Henry McDonald, died November 14, 1853, age 66." Two children are also buried there
