DAR Lookup- MacDonald/McDonald

Surnames: McDonald, MacDonald, McDougall
Looking for any Patriots from MacDonald/McDonalds of Canada by way of Scottland.

Have male lineage: Kermit V. McDonald>William Hugh McDonald (Alma Nedland)>Hugh Jerome McDonald (?)>Daniel Archie McDonald (Mary Margaret McDougall (dau of Rory McDougall and Rachel McDonald))>Joseph McDonald (Mary McDonald dau of Mary MacMaster and Malcolm Macdonald)...etc.

This is from my own research...could be some error...struggling to keep all the McDonald's straight. There are quite a few "MacDonald/McDonald" patriots in the DAR database.

Thank you!

It can be frustrating is the families keep using the same names over and over. I would also be cautious if the family was living in Canada after 1783, as that may mean they were Loyalists.

In order to identify a McDonald patriot, you would probably have to know where he was living in the United States. There are clusters of them in Pennsylvania, Virginia and South Carolina.
