Emigrated to PEI from England, 4 Jun 1825. One of the earliest settlers in White Sands. Member of Methodist Church in White Sands. Directed choir and sang bass. Industrious and a good neighbor. When he was smitten down his strong constitution soon broke up amidst the surging tide and he passed away in peace bearing testimony that "All was well with his soul".

Notes for SARAH JANE MACDONALD:

Sarah's mother, Sarah MacDonald, was living in Hopewell Hill at the time of the 1881 census with Murdock Smith. He was 20 years her senior and it seems was the father of the 5 children she had at that time. In the next census there was no record of them in N.B. so I presume they had moved to Truro.
