Penelope McDonell and Ranald McDonald were at the baptism of Samuel McDonald/ McDonell and Margaret Scotts son Duncan at Portage du Fort. Samuel's name again is spelled as McDonell. They definitely knew each other.
Ranald and Penelope on their marriage record were 2nd cousins.
There is a link to the McDonalds and McDonells I just have to find it. Where do these families connect?
