Information on Capt. J.A. McDonald of PEI. Married Mary Jane Shanks at Halifax NS 26 May 1851. Had a son, Colin Hugh (my great g/f) bn 15Jan1863 Georgetown, Kings Co, PEI died 02Sep1934 Tamworth NSW.
Have confirmed Mary Jane dying young, family lore also has the Capt. dying at a youngish age. Family anecdotes also have us originating in Scotland, Isle of Skye, but I have no proof of that. Have just commenced my first attempt at tracing my family history. My thanks for assistance.
