Looking for regarding Alexander McDonald and his wife Jennet (born Young). As per the 1851 census records for New Brunswick, Canada, they came here in 1833. Both were born in Scotland. In the 1851 census he is listed as age 40 and she as 38.
They had the following children which I believe were all born in Canada with the exception of Thomas. His obit stated that he was born on the ocean. Their children were:
Alexander, Thomas, Sarah, John, Timothy, Margaret, George and Hugh.
