Hi Casey- It is Colleen. Here is a recent post on Michael McDonald. Still doing research, not much new. Please e-mail me sometime email@example.com
. This is from a recent post. I met with the Lady and provided her some of the church records.
Michael McDonald (1812-1889) m Margaret McMicking (1820-1914) and his brother Andrew (1810-1872) m Mary Ann McMicking. According to a family account, the McDonald brothers were from Castleblaney, Co Monaghan, Ireland and came to Norfolk Co by way of Baltimore in 1837. Michael and Margaret farmer at Windham & were closely associated with the RC church there. In 1881 they were living in Dunnville with their son Andrew who moved to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan in 1895. They then lived in Stayner where they died and are buried at St. Patrick’s cemetery. Their children are: Mary Ann, John, Martina, Ellen, Andrew, Catherine & Elizabeth.
Andrew and Mary Ann’s children are: Alice, Catherine, Margaret, Ellen, Mary Jane, James, Ann Augusta, Michael, Thomas & Josephine.
Mary Ann and Margaret were sisters. Their mother was Catherine Wood. Spelling of their surname varies wildly: McMicking, McMickhing, McMullen, McMeegan, McMeehan. This family is said to be from Co. Cavan, Ireland.
