Daniel Douglas McDougal, was born March 22, 1858, in Boston and answered the final summons from his home in Rock, Kansas, March 5, 1922.

He was educated in the schools of his native state and early chose the career of a teacher. Heeding the call of the west he came to Butler County, Kansas in 1884, where success crowned his work as an instructor. In completing his professional training he pursued his studies at Kansas State - Normal at Emporia. It was while conducting a school in North Butler county tha he t met and won for his bride, Miss Ella Varner. They married at DeGraff, May 4, 1890. Their home was near Augusta until January 1902 when they moved to Rock to the home from which he was called to his last reward.

As an infant he was dedicated to God in Baptism and his life has been one of faith. He united with Economy M.E. Church near Pontiac and later transferred to Rock. As Sunday school superintendent and leader of the Gospel Team he has devoted his talents to the work of the church. The patience shown in the closing months of his suffering testify his enduring faith. Often he voiced hismtestimony, " WE have here no abiding City", but we seek one to come. His soul stirred even to the closing days in answer to songs which were sung at home.

Mr. McDougal was a member of Douglass Lodge No. 151, A. F. & A. M., having been made a mason in March 1915. The community looses a citizen respected by all who knew him.

Those left to cherish his memory are: the widow, foster children, Harry Stone and family of Douglass, Raymond Gray and wife of Rock, and other relatives and a host of friends.

Funeral services were held at Rock M.E. Church and were conducted by Rev. R. L. Wells. The burial was at Augusta Mausoleum in charge of Douglass Lodge of A.F. & A.M.
