Seeking information about Angus McDonald, husband of Jennet/Janet McNeil (daughter of John 'Brown' McNeil). Two of their sons were Malcolm McIsaac McDonald (born Antigonish 1818) and Donald (also referred to as James), birthdate unknown.
Angus and Jennet were living in Pembroke, ON, when Malcolm married Mary McDonnell in Glengarry County. In 1846, Malcolm's brother Donald travelled from NS or Boston to Glengarry, where he married Sarah McDonnell, the sister of Mary. Donald (and presumably Sarah as well) then returned immediately to NS or Boston.
I presume that Angus had been born in Scotland. Jennet's father, John 'Brown' McNeil, had been one of the four John McNeils in the 82nd Regiment, which was granted land in NS in the 1780/1790s.
