Surnames: McDonald
I am looking for the obituaries (or any other information that would list the children) of Daniel and Delila (Bristol) McDonald.

Daniel died on 5 April 1898 in Sevastopol. He was born in Canada in 1832. Delila (nee Bristol) was born in March 1834 in Canada and died 3 August 1921 in Door County (likely Sturgeon Bay).

Census records for 1870 and 1880 show 7 children, but I can only trace what happened to 2 of these children. Any information on the other 5 would be great. Perhaps obituaries from William or Delila would list them and their locations.

Martha, 1865 (Married John Meverden and died in Algoma in 1949)

Hello, I am not related. Hope this helps. RP
-------------
The 1900 census shows Delilah Mcdonald having 11 children, but only 3 living. Martha & Hattie would be 2, and John would have been the 3rd child living during the 1900 census. He was listed as single. Delilah also had 3 Mcdonald grandchildren living with her in 1900 7 1905. I would think they were children of either James or Francis, or possibly William, although william would have been about 18 years old when the first child was born.

There is an obit for Daniel in the Kewaunee County newspaper, as well as an obit for Mrs. John Meverden. There is also an obit for a Herbert, 7 years old, who died in July of 1880.
