What's New Oct. 27  Week in Review -- Alex W Fraser -Glengarrycounty.com


Working on sorting out more McRae Families adding to connections of my MacDonalds of Loupe, Lundie & Fraser Connections

Received a McDougall query this past week from the Finch Ontario Area. Any assistance of filling in some gaps on this family would be welcomed by Gordon.

Name: Gordon MacDougall

E-mail: nodrogm @ eastlink.ca

surnames: McDougall family of Finch, Ontario

Date: Jan. 2. 1855 - Dec. 30 1960

query: My gggrandfather and gggrandmother came to Finch in the mid-1850's with multiple family members. Can you recommend any of your publications which might help me to fill in the blanks. My understanding is that some of them brought the ability to distill whisky with them! My grandfather was Hector Donald MacDougall who came to B.C. in the very early 1900's as my father was born in what is now Southern Alberta in 1906. They were on their way to Hedley to work in the gold mine there. The old timers above came from the Isle of Mull and were named Allan and Flora (Paterson). The Paterson name shows up a couple of times with some of my gguncles as a second given name.
Thanks for any assistance you might be able to give me, Gordon Wallace MacDougall,
