He was formally named Ronald Gordon McDonald which gets him confused with his father Ronald Sandfield McDonald. He was known as Gordon and affectionately as “Uncle Gordy.” Grace gave birth on 3 May 1904. The place of Gordon’s birth has been stated as Grand Rapids, Minnesota but I am not totally convinced.
In the search box of the other blog mentioned above try, searching on “Gordon,” or “Ronald Gordon.” We will meet up again with Gordon when he comes to visit his grandmother Amarilla in 1939.
This photo below is one of my favorites of my uncle. It was taken in International Falls probably about 1909 or 1910?
