Yes and I was always told we were related to him but I haven't found the connection yet. My second cousin has lots of his photo's of John A Macdonald in the family album but who knows. That side of my family was described to me by my mother as aristrocrates. I was also told they were Scottish. My cousin confirmed they had money and were educated. However her records and the Candian census indicate the macdonald's came from Ireland.

My grandfather H. A Macdonad married my grandmother (from highlands) who was in service -- domestic. My guess he was dis-inherited for marrying her. He was an inventor and I've found 3 if his patents through the Candian data base. Well, my grandfather died in 1936 and my father died in1963 so I was very disconnected from that side of my family. Ancestry.com has made it possible for me to learn so much it has been amazing experience. In fact, I found cousin in Scotland I never knew I had. Last year, I made the trip to Scotland to meet them.. I didn't visit Kildare but hope I can make the trip some day.
