Alan,

No mention of Donald or Neil Ban in Petitions & Land Grants but there is in Father John's Brevity and I assume you have the following:

MacDonald, Niel ban 18-Dec-1839, Lancaster-7, Lot 14 "...from Niel ban McDhoil ic____? Jen Lan 7c N14 pro of 1838 for '39 by his son Archibald, k4 bu wheat, 2 1/2 bu peas, 6 bu oats."[This appears to be another Niel ban or Father was repeating his contibution from last winter?]

MacDonald, Niel Ban 02-Jul-1840, Lancaster-7, Lot 14, "mac Dhoil ic Jen [4], 7 oats, 5 wheat, 2 1/2 peas, some oats to come yet." [4] son of Donald, of John

MacDonald, Niel Ban - same date and contribution as above - mac Dhoil ic Join [1] Lan 7, N14 for dues of 1837." Said Oats were brought here before winter.
[1] Neil, son of Donald, son of Hugh, son of John

Yes I beleive you gave me that last year or so, I take it was contributions/donations for the Church, in lieu of monies? And McDhoil was short or gaelic for Macdonald?

My great grandmother was Margaret McDonald b. 22 Feb. 1842 in Alexandria, Glengarry. Her parents are Angus McDonald and Catherine McDougal. This U.S. cousin has become very confused and can't seem to straighten out which are her relatives. Can you help? They seemed to belong to St. Finnan RC church.

Angus, Catherine McDonald and Flora McDougal are buried in the Riverside Cemetery in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Thank You for any help.

My Angus C. 1812 was supposed to be the son of Angus and his wife Mary.

Angus' wife was Catherine McDougal. They had Margaret, Ewen, Elizabeth and Mary while in Alexandria. Later they had James and another Mary in NY before settling in Kalamazoo, MI in 1860.

Are the names Ewen and Hugh the same?

U. S. cousin

Also from St. Finnan's:

John MacDonald PP.

Thank You, Tal.

Is there a marriage record for Angus McDonald and Catherine McDougald?

Could Archibald and Mary be Angus'parents?

I think Catherine's mother was Flora (Flory or Florence) McDougald according to the tombstone in Kalamazoo.
