Mr. Donahoe has been quite prominent in county affairs, having been county commissioner two terms, county surveyor one term, and justice of the peace two terms.

Observing the large demand for fine fruit in an early day, and anticipating an increased demand, he planted large orchards of the finest fruit, and, as a consequence, has for many years been one of the most prominent fruit-growers in the country, reaping a rich harvest from his investments. In 1832 he married Ann McAtee, and she and her husband in their declining years are reaping the benefits of a well-spent life, honored and respected by all who are favored with their acquaintance. They have been blessed with thirteen children; Thomas,Jane (Adams,James,Mary (Mattingly),William, Margaret (Herni), Sarah E., Edward,Ella (Mattingly), George, Martha, John, and Louis (a physician).
