I am looking for information on my GG Grandfather, Hugh McDonell (could be McDonald - Mc or Mac). He was born in 1801 and died Aug. 20, 1883. He married Catherine MacDonald sometime prior to 1835. they had my G Grandfather Angus Hugh McDonell in 1835.
According to the 1881 census they were born in Ontario.

I am looking for any information on parents, siblings, and other children of both Hugh and Catherine.

Alexander (Roy) Mcdonell was born abt 1769 in Scotland(?). In 1785 he and his wife (name unknown, b abt 1763) lived in Charlottenburgh with no Children. Between 1790 and 1801 they had eight children the last one being Hugh. This is a UEL family and each of the kids received 200a.

abt 1799 his son Donald (my gggrandfather) was born. In 1823 or so Donald married Sarah Cameron in East Nissouri, Oxford and from there I can trace the family to my brother and myself.

I'm wondering if your Hugh, father of your gggrandfather? I've found some info on them but can't confirm the connection to Alexander (Roy). I assume "Roy" is a nickname.

Realize it's been awhile since your post here, hopefully we'll be able to exchange useful information
