Ronger William McDonald married Florence Louise Lewandoskey (shortened to Doskey) Their two children are Louise Florence McDonald who married Leonard Lewis Griswold (My parents) and a son William Ronger McDonald. I have all the dope an these folks!! Ronger's mom was Marie Simpier and her hubby was William Robertson McDonald. I have traveled to Manistee and crawled thru the basement of the court records. Miller Saloon sigh is still legible. Marie was married briefly to Charlie Miller and because he beat her her mother, Matilda, sent her with her half brother John to Seattle, washington where she became employed in the McDonald household as a domestic. Son William fell in love with her and that was the scandal of the day... a Scot to marry a French Canadian!!! His dad,Charles, disowned him. William went to the Yukon gold rush and I have all his letters to Marie of his adventures there. He went over the Chillicothe Pass. Does this help?
