Family of Varnum McConnell

Posted: 1041998839000
Classification: Query
Surnames: McConnell, McDonald
Varnum McConnell, b 1869 in Picton of Price Edward County, Ontario to Reuben and Abigail McConnell. He emigrated to Michigan in the late 1880s. A 1941 newspaper article notes that Varnum or "Barney" was long time Supervisor of Hawes Township, Alcona County, Michigan. It lists four sons--Guy, Judd, Earl & Vern--living in Detroit and four daughters--Clara Conklin, Kathryn Ferris, Uldeen McConnell, and Della Sivier. I'm unsure if this McConnell family is related to mine. My grandfather John McConnell, b 1845, married Catherine McDonald, b 1851. Their known children were George, b 1876; Jesse, b 1878; David b 1883 in Ripley, Huron County, Ontario; and John b. 1885. They migrated to Alpena County (adjacent to Alcona), Michigan about 1887.
