Hi Wanda:

Murdoch McDonald was born in 1834 in Scotland and he shows up in the 1881 and 1991 census. He is a widower in the 1881 census and has a large family. There is also a Charles McDonald listed born Scotland 1801 and he's a widower. From my research I think he was the father-in-law and Murdoch married his daughter Jessie she died about 1880. During the 1891 census Murdoch is married to an Annie MacLeod but no children from that marriage.
Charles McDonald (Jessie's brother )married a Mrs. Mary Nicholson(nee Mary Buchanan) and several of their children are buried in Caledonia cemetery. John Charles McDonald born 1833 Scotland married Hannah Stewart and Donald McDonald born Scotland 1840 married Annie MacPherson. They are buried in Caledonia.

Murdoch McDonald's eldest son was Alexander born 1861 and he married a Catherine McDonald of lot 59 and they are North Uist McDonald's. Alexander would be my greatgrandfather.
I also noticed on your site a Jessie Margaret Cameron married to a Malcolm McDonald and wondering if she would be Alan Cameron's sister Jessie?

thanks, Jane
