McDonalds of Broad Cove

Classification: Query
Surnames: McDonald, Doyle
I've been searching for some time now for information on my great-great grandfather, Alexander McDonald, who I believe came from Broad Cove. He married Anne Doyle, and they moved to River Head, Newfoundland where he worked as a carpenter. He returned to Cape Breton around 1860, and settled in the Cow Bay (Port Morien) area. According to the census information Alexander was born in the 1820 range, his wife Anne about 1830 or so. I have quite a bit of information on their children, but little on them, and none on their own parents or siblings. Their son, John Francis, was my great grandfather. I've run into dead ends repeatedly, so any information would be much appreciated.
