          The Late Ben Solomon Donelson is the father of the Bishop Lee Donelson Sr.  

Deacon Ben served his local church and community most of his adult life.  He married Ms Marie Jones in 1960 and this union were born 3 children, one which died as an infant.  This changed his life for the better in that his wife was a committed young christian woman faithful to her church.  He soon after the death of his baby girl joined his wife's church, recommitting his life to the Lord and the Church.  He became a faithful member of his local church and served in various capacities throughout his life.  He took his family to church faithfully and was an example to his two boys that a genuine life with Jesus Christ was the most important endeavor of life and living.
