Surnames: O'Hanley, MacDonald
Looking for connections in our family tree. They all came originally from Scotland in 1849 during the "Evictions", settled in Middlesex Co. My g-g-grandparents were John and Mary (MacDonald) O'Hanley. Mary's parents were Angus MacDonald and Ann MacCormick. All were either from South Uist or Benbecula, Scotland.

They settled in the Parkhill area known as Bornish, they belonged to St. Columba church, which still stands as well as the cemetary. I've gathered alot of information and would love to share with other long lost cousins, plus have a contact who has done extensive research about the Scots who emmigrated during the Evictions. If you are interested in sharing info, please contact me.

Hello:
I am not related directly to the O'Hanley family, however & I have few
in my file & am hoping to double check info - if you don't mind.

I have John O'Hanley married to Mary McDonald (no other info) other than
I have found 3 daughters for them: Annie (1869, Mar. 18), Hanna (1870,
June 4) & Josephine (?)

No other info on Annie or Hanna,
however Josephine married Peter McKinnon Oct. 29, 1907 - I have one
child for them;
Cecilia (July 9, 1909) and she married John Edward Healy.

Anyway, I hate loose ends - any info you could share on
these people would be greatly appreciated.
Ann

I also have O'Hanley/McDonalds from Parkhill, Ontario on my family tree. Sarah O'Hanley my great grandmother was the daughter of Malcolm O'Hanley and Catherine MacCormack
natives of Inverness Scotland . Sarah was married to Donald Stephen McDonald my great grandfather. His father was Ronald McDonald from South Uist, Scotland. Donald was first married to a Catherine MacDonald whose father was Archibald MacDonald he married Sarah after Catherine's
death. I have no verification of this information as it was collected many years ago by a relative who has since passed away. I do have records regarding these families after they left Canada to settle in Saginaw and Midland Michigan.

Hi Joann-
Good to see you on here! When I saw "Tressler" I knew it had to be you guys. =) I haven't forgotten the pictures you asked me to make copies of for you when you were here in May. I'll get them to you soon. You know, I have always wondered about them losing the farm in Parkhill. Marilyn has no idea what happened and I didn't know about it until after Grandma Trudeau died. Can you tell me anything about it and what year that happened? Hope you all are well-
Kristi
