I am looking for any information on George Forbes McDonald. He was born aft 1850 in Little Harbour NS and died in 1891 in the Coal mines in Alberta. His wife Agnes Jane Young came back to Westville in 1891.
They had 4 children 1. Margarette ( Greta) MacDonaldborned 06/11/1877 in Westville. She married Charles Angus McDonadl 11/8/1872 2. Sarah MacDonald born 01/09/1888 in Stellarton. SHe married Angus J. McDonald 3. Adeliade ( Addie) McDonald born 12/23/1889 in Stellarton.She married Leonard Huggan born between 11/19/1869-1871 4. George MacDonald born 05/18/1890.He married Bessie Emberley around November 1900.
Doreen George's parents were Angus McDonald ( ? - 1859) and Margaret Forbes. Angus was killed in an accident on the New Glasgow Bridge. Margaret was born about 1816 and died between the 1891 and1901 census. George had 8 brothers and sisters as follows: James (1847-1905) married Ellen Dobson and lived in Lowell Mass. Dan who died at the age of 7. Annie who married a Murdock. Margeret Jane (1846-1909) who married John McPherson and lived in Cape Breton. Catherine (1839-1881) who married Robert Russell. Maria who died at age 16. Julia (1845-1928) who married George Anderson. Jessie (1858-1935)who married William Aikens. All I have been able to find out about Angus' parents comes from the 2nd marriage of mygggrandfather, Angus' brother Joseph Allan, is that their names were Alexander and Catherine. The names were from my father's notes and I have been able to fill in some info from NS vital stats. Hope this helps. Cathy
