I am descendant of the McDonell (Aberchalder) family in Glengarry. I have information that indicates Alex McDonell (Aberchalder), Allan (Collachie) and John (Leek) were brothers and that John (Spanish John) McDonell was their cousin and Ranald McDonell was a brother in-law. I also think Father Roderick McDonell (died 1806) was a member of this family member. If this is accurate does anyone have the connections documented? I assume that they shared at least one grand parent.
The second question; was Bishop Alexander McDonell and his nephew Alexander McDonell (1786 -1861) related to Aberchalder,Leek and Collachie? If yes does anyone have the relationship documented.
As always I am willing to share what information and documentation I have.
