I am looking for the father and mother of John Macdonald b Aug 4, 1812, Kildare, Ireland. I have found one record that lists his father as William. John moved to Ottawa about 1840. He married Ezilabeth Charles. The first Candian cemsus I found listed his religion as Plymouth Brethern. Later he is listed as a Methodist.
Any information on his parents or where I could look would be appreciated.
