This family is listed in the 1881 Census in Simcoe North with 11 children. They are also in the 1852 Kenyon Census as Alexander MacDonald and Catherine Munroe but have two children with them. They are Peter 15 years and born Ontario and Elizabeth 16 born Scotland (maybe sister of Alexander) They are all Church of Scotland. The 1881 census show them as Presbyterians. All my church records are Catholic so you will need to find the marriage info on Alex and Catherine.

Maybe the family but my mom never heard of Peter or Elizabeth. Her great mother Jane always said John was the oldest of the kids.This is getting very strange maybe Peter was a younger bother and so was Elizabeth. Now i guess the hard part is is to find what country Alex and Catherine were born in

Hi Katherine,

Are you still looking for Glenmorrison? Alexander MacDonald is also my ancestor and I have been hunting him too. In answer to Glenmorrison, it is what they used to call the valley that runs between Loch Cluanie and Loch Ness in Northern Scotland. The A87 roadway runs through it. Alexander was likely born in a farmhouse in one of the croft farms.

The obit of Katie Munro wife of Thomas McDonald (I believe this is the son of Alex McDonald and Catherine Munro)

Copied Aug. 18, 94 AWF
From the Glengarry News, Alexandria, Ontario, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1944 P.8 col. 6 top
MRS. Thomas. MCDONALD, Nee Katie Munroe DIES AT
WYEBRIDGE
Many of her old Glengarry friends will learn with regret of the sudden passing of Mrs.
Thomas McDonald, the former Katie Munroe, of Munroe’s Mills. Mrs. McDonald had been in her usual
health until within ten hours of her passing, having spent the evening at the home of her son Ralph, at Wyebridge, Ont., On retiring about midnight she was seized with a stroke of paralysis and passed
away the following afternoon.
Mrs. McDonald was the second youngest of the family of the late Malcolm Munroe and his
wife, Ellen Grant of Munroe’s Mills. She was born March 30, 1881, and resided there until her marriage on June 27, 1906, to Thomas McDonald, Wyebridge, Simcoe County, Ont., who predeceased her two years ago.
Left to mourn are Mrs. William Nightingale [Ethel] of Wyevale; Jean, public school
teacher, Elmvale, Mack, Ralph and Burns, of Wyebridge. A son Ian, died in infancy. Also surviving are three sisters and two brothers, Mrs. Donald Stewart, John A. Munroe, Ben G. Munroe, of Apple Hill., Mrs. Philip A. Munroe. Kindersley, Sask. and Mrs. Hugh J. Campbell, Monckland.
Mrs. McDonald will be remembered by her friends for her genial, unassuming manner and
in the community where she resided for the past 38 years as -- a neighbor everready and willing to go the second mile with friends in time of adversity. She was a member of Wyebridge Presbyterian Church and an active member of the Ladies Aid Society.
The funeral was held Wednesday, Nov. 8th from her late residence, the service being
conducted by her pastor Rev. Taylor - Munroe, assisted by Rev. Mr. Morrison, Wyevale United Church.
Mr. Munroe chose for his subject “The Spirit of Kindness” as characteristic of the deceased. Hymns sung during the service were “Jesus Lover of My Soul,” and “Forever With the Lord.”
A profusion of flowers surrounded the casket, loving tributes from sympathizing friends.
A cortege of unusual length followed the remains to their last resting place in Myebridge Cemetery.
Those attending from a distance were Mrs. Donald Stewart, John A. Munroe, Ben G. Munroe, Apple Hill and Mr. and Mrs. Hugh J. Campbell, Monckland.
