My 3g grandfather was Donald (Bane) McDonell. Here is a transcription of an affidavit we believe to be in support of his petition to have his name inserted "on the U.E. List of this Procince." The affidavit was executed in York on 12 Dec 1819, and mentions his brother Alexander Bane Beg McDonell:

I certify that Donald McDonell, commonly called Donald Bane, was settled in the Province of New York in the year 1773 - that he joined the Royal Standard in the year 1777 at St. John's, in the then Province of Quebec, with his brother Alexander McDonell, also commonly called Alex Bane Beg, for whom I certified last year that he had likewise joined the Royal Standard at the period above mentioned.

York 12th December, 1819 Alex. McDonell
J. P., Home District

Donald's obituary:

The Kingston Chronicle & Gazette Sept 21, 1839 page 2

- On 18th Sept 1839, at Wolfe Island, opposite to Kingston, Mr Donald (Ban,) McDonald, a native of Glengary, Scotland, aged 97 years. He came to America with the McDonells, in 1772, and in 1775 he joined the British Standard, under Sir John Johnson in whose Regiment he served for 7 years. He lived and died a loyal subject, left a large family to lament his death, viz a wife, six sons and two daughters, with their numerous offspring.
