Obituaries - NJ - 1901 - Donald W. McLeod
His Wife Was Formerly a Keyport Girl
Donald W. McLeod, a summer resident of Highland Park, near Atlantic Highlands, died at New York a few days ago. Mr. McLeod had
been sick a long time and no one was allowed to see him. His brother claimed that he was being kept a prisoner in his home by his
wife and Mrs. McLeod was brought up in court to show cause why her husbands relatives should not be allowed to see him. Mr. McLeod
made affidavit that he was not being kept from his relatives against his will and that ended the suit. Mr. McLeod was a large stockholder
in the new pier at Atlantic Highlands. For a long time other members of the pier company have been trying to hold the annual meeting, but
Mrs. McLeod is a daughter of the late Captain William Bush, who ran a sloop from Keyport to New York for a number of years. One of his
boats was the Hattie Bush, which was named after Mrs. McLeod. Mr. McLeod left a large estate and his widow is well provided for in his will.
