Surnames: McDougalls of 16-9th Lancaster
Saw you postings and threads concerning the McDougalls who lived on 16-9th of Lancaster, in fact I have the deed to the farm. You are probably correct, I was told that the farm on the 16-9th of Lancaster was not granted to these McDougalls, but purchased. I am a descendant of Alexander Donald McDougall and his wife Mary McRae. A cousin of mine told me that John Breachd McDougall was married to Katherine McDonnell, but up until now I have not been able to confirm that.

I have most of the information on Alexander Donald McDougall's descendant, but do have a few gaps.

I noticed the postings were dated Nov 2004, so hopefully either or both of your email addresses are still active.

I am most interested in getting in touch with you.

Hi and good afternoon Donald.

Your posting referring to Alexander Donald McDougall & Mary McRae. In my records I have a Donald McDougald & Mary McRae residing in Lochiel - Concession 6. Their children being John, Ann, Roderick, Catherine, Isabella and Duncan.

Same family?

My main interest is Roderick but have some information of other members of family. He married Flory Cameron from Concession 6 Kenyon one of the 12 Cameron girls of Duncan and Margaret MacDougall(d)

Would you contact me at the following email address

Look forward to hearing from you.

Paul Luscombe.

Donald - I am also researching what appears to be the same family. My link is through a Christina McDougald born Mar 5, 1838 on Lot 16, 9th Concession Lancaster Twp.

Parents were Alexander MacDougald and Mary MacRae.

Christina married Colin Campbell July 21, 1856 St Finnans, Alexandria. Colin, Christina & family subsequently moved to Michigan.

Hopefully we can share what we know.

Donald - Thanks for this latest posting. Yes, that is the family. There are a couple of discrepancies with what I have, but it all basically matches.

I have Mary McRae's death as June 5, 1859 whereas you have 1857. The date I have came from the gravestone, but since they are often hard to read, the last digit could have been a 7 rather than a 9.

Colin Campbell was actually born in Quebec, not Ontario - just over the 'border' in St Polycarp. His gravestone in Oscoda, MI gives his birthplace. His place of death is uncertain because he was living in Greenbush and visiting his children in AuSable / Oscoda (2 adjoining townships) when he died. He is buried in Oscoda. Many of the records from AuSable / Oscoda were destroyed in a fire in 1911.

Please email me on fredcouples7 at hotmail dot com, and we can hopefully share more. Thanks. Mike.

Excuse me for butting in! I have been researching my gg grdfather Peter M(a)cDougal(l), Roman Catholic, b 1776 d 1854. Buried St. Andrews West. Married Christian MacLennan, Oct 1810, Williamstown, Glengarry. I have no idea how or when he arrived Upper Canada, whether alone or with family. He did settle, abt 1809 on 3rd conc of Indian Lands, Charlottenburg. I do have considerable info after 1845. Any suggestions or assistance would be greatly appreciated to fill in earlier blanks or connections. Thank you.

I believe I've seen a Peter M(a)cDougal(l)in some of the records I've reviewed, but a search on my computer did not find anything.

He may belong to a different McDougald family.

Sorry. Mike.

Hi Guys

I believe I am also descended from the family at Lot 16 9th conc. I'm sure there was a Peter in our family but my GGGrandfather moved to Lochiel soon after my GGrandfather was born. I'll do some searching tomorrow night. My GGrandfather was John, his father was Donald and I think his father was John Breachd.
