Looking for a WILLIAM A MCDONALD,b. abt. Oct 1867 in Scotland, who immigrated to NY,NY, about 1880.
William A, Married JENNIE DEEGAN (sic) in about 1891 prob. in NY. - she was b. abt 1870 in Northern Ireland & immigrated to NY about 1875.
They appear as a family only in the 1900 census for NY.
Jennie possibly died in abt 1891 leaving behind husband William A; daughter Katherine M,b. 1893 in NY (ended up in Oregon marrying a STAHLY; son William A. Jr b. abt 1892 NY; and another daughter who died young.
From then on the MCDONALD family has scattered. Katherine & William were placed in an orphanage in NY.
Would appreciate input & information.
