I am seeking help trying to connect with this early MacDonald
Keith McDonald, from Nevada,
was at the genealogy help centre two weeks ago. He descends from
McDonald and his wife
Rachel Ferguson who lived at Howley's Ferry pre 1850. I don't know
they ever left that area.
In 1866 his son William Alexander McDonald was living at Cow Bay
Morien) when his son George William McD.
was born Jun. 6, 1866. About 1890 George William McDonald and his
Ellen (Possibly Bagnell) settled in the US.
George William is the grandfather of Keith McDonald of Nevada.
If anyone is familiar with this family I would love to hear from
Thanks in Advance. Maureen McNeil
