I am a descendant of James and Mary (Boland) McDonald. They were both born in Ireland. They were parents of 7 children, the oldest born in Ireland, the rest born in Newfoundland between 1835 and 1848. They moved to Westfield Twp, Bureau County, Illinois in the early 1850's She died in 1861, he died in 1881 and are buried in St Vincent's Cemetery in LaSalle, IL.
Would be happy to share information.
