The Descendants of Alexander MacDonald of Barra Scotland and The MacDonalds of Lot 10

Generation No. 1

1. ALEXANDER MACDONALD1 of Barra Scotland, lived 18th to 19th century. He married UNKNOWN.

Notes for ALEXANDER:

See the marriage record for John and Elizabeth MacIntyre which identifies Alex MacDonald as Johnís father in Barra Scotland, parish of St. Brendanís. Marriage record identifies Alexander as residing in Barra, Scotland. Based on dates of John and Elizabeth Marriage, Alexander was probably born late 18th century. No death record in Barra has yet been found for Alexander.

Much of what we know of the family in Scotland comes from the parish register of St Brendans, kept by Fr. Angus MacDonald. The registrar is kept in English but this was a Gaelic speaking and it must be remembered that names are largely Anglicized. (MacDhòmhnaill for MacDonald, Alisdair for Alex(ander), etc).

Child of ALEXANDER and UNKNOWN is:

2. i. JOHN DONALD2 MCDONALD, b. Scotland, per 1890 PEI Census; d. Bef. 1853.

Emigration Notes:

Our best estimate is the family emigrated sometime after 1824 (Birth record of John and Elizabethís son Alexander) and 1830 (date estimated from Canadian census son Donald "Daniel" was born in Nova Scotia.

At the time, the island of Barra was owned by the McNeils. The following is excerpted from "With the crofters to Canada: patterns of emigration from the Isle of Barra to British North America, from 1770 to 1850." Archaeologist Keith Branigan , in History Today.

"The HIGHLAND Clearances of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries are one of the most notorious and well-documented episodes in Scottish history. Thousands of crofters and their families in the Highlands and Islands were forcibly removed from their tiny tenancies. Some were sent off to the burgeoning industrial towns of the Scottish lowlands, others were shipped to Canada or even to Australia and New Zealand. ÖÖThe 8km-long Barra, was first settled around 4000BC by farmers who cleared the light tree cover to build homes, graze sheep and cattle, and grow barley. New settlers from Ireland arrivedin the early Middle Ages and established the clan Macneil. The population grew rapidly in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, due to the introduction of the potato, development of a fishing industry, the opportunities for military service and the rise of the kelp industry.

By 1820, however, kelp, fishing and soldiering were all in decline and the estate went into debt. The last of the direct ancestral line of Macneils had to sell the island in 1840, and ten years later came Colonel Gordon's clearance.

"....... the Napoleonic Wars were coming to an end, and with them the relative prosperity that the crofters back in the Hebrides had enjoyed for twenty years. The price of kelp began to drop sharply, ex-soldiers began to return home, and as incomes began to fall the population on Catholic Barra continued to grow"

"....A veteran of Corunna, Quatre Bras and Waterloo (though still only thirty-two when he became chief) Roderick Macneil, 41st chief of the Macneils (1790-1863), was the wrong man in the wrong place at the wrong time......... To make matters worse at the time he succeeded to the ownership of Barra, the Government reduced the duty on imported barilla, knocking out the prop which kept the kelping industry afloat. Nevertheless, like the military man he was, General Macneil (as he is usually known) came lip with a carefully integrated strategy to turn the estate's fortunes around. He would move his tenants off the best pastures on the west of the island and rent these out for sheep runs. At the same time he would establish a new fishing village at Castlebay, where the abandoned ancestral home of Kisimuel Castle stood. The displaced tenants from the west would be given new plots, on much poorer land, on the east side of the island or could become fisherman at Castlebay. Many of them would also be employed in his new chemical works at Northbay, where kelp would be reprocessed by a new and secret technology to produce a much higher quality product. Kelp bought at 3 [pounds sterling] or 4 [pounds sterling] per ton would be resold at around 20 [pounds sterling] per loll. By this plan, Macneil hoped to maintain his existing rental income from the crofters, receive new monies from the sheep pastures and fishing and make a fortune from the chemical works.."

"...The strategy required two key resources, however, capital to invest in the factory, and a secure population of rent-payers who would also work some of the year in the chemical factory. He took out new loans to build the factory, and told the parish priest plainly in a letter dated February 7th, 1825, that he would use all the powers at his disposal to oppose emigration. But there was little he could do, and in July in exasperation he wrote again to the priest asking him to read out 'a proclamation' following the next Sunday service, which included among other dire warnings 'that those who have signed [for a passage] and repented that their repentance has come too late--So help me God, they shall go'. He had long warned that if his clansmen would not do his bidding, then he would bring in Protestants from elsewhere to replace them"

It seems likely our John and Elizabeth would have experienced the economic decline and may have heard this proclamation, but like many others, left for North America.

Besides economic reasons, there may have been some religious pressure

As to why North America and not other places (Australia, Barbados, the Carolinas , other US States, or the interior Canadian provinces), passage to Nova Scotia or PEI was the quickest and also the least expensive.

From the birth records of Johnís children in Barra, we know John was a carpenter. Many such wood workers came to PEI aong the northern shore near Cascumpeque where there was in the mid 1800s a ship building industry.

There is also an old family legend in the oral tradition that holds that John MacDonaldís grandfather was also a John MacDonald, and fought in the French wars of the 1850s in North America (some claim he was at the Battle of Quebec). In either case, John and Elizabeth would have known many that had emigrated already to the Canadian maritime provinces.

Notes for JOHN "DONALD" MCDONALD and his name:

It should be kept in mind that our ancestors were Gaelic speakers. John would have been Ian MacDhòmhnaill and that it was the Parish priest, Angus MacDonald, who anglicized their names in the Parish registrar.

We do not know if Donald was really Johnís middle name we only know that in one descendant marriage record, John was referred to as a Donald. grandparents; there are no known children of Daniel named Donald.

According to the 1881 and 1891 PEI Census, John and Elizabethís son Daniel is reported to have been born in Nova Scotia in 1830 or possibly 1831. Data from the US census of Daniel's sons Paulinus, Joseph Bernard, likewise indicate their father Daniel was born in Nova Scotia. We thus conclude that John (Donald) and Elizabeth were in Nova Scotia in 1830 and/or 1831. At this writing (August 2011), where they were in Nova Scotia is unknown

By 1840 however they were in Casumpeque in Prince Edward Island.

4. CATHERINE3 MACDONALD (JOHN DONALD2 MCDONALD, ALEXANDER1) was born Unknown. She married DUNCAN MONROE March 31, 1856 in St. Anthony's Roman Catholic Church, Bloomfield, PEI, son of JAMES MONROE and MARY HALL.

Notes for CATHERINE MACDONALD:

See notes for Duncan Monroe: she appears to have died between 1866 and 1881, based on the last child born and the 1881 census which notes Duncan is a widower

Notes for DUNCAN MONROE:

According to marriage record, Duncan is from Pictou Nova Scotia

"On the eighth of April one thousand eight hundred and fifty-six In virtue of a provis granted to me by his Lordship the Rt. Rev. B. D. McDonald Bishop of Charlottetown bearing the date the 5th of July 1843 I have the profession of faith of Duncan Monroe son of James Monroe and Mary Hall of Pictou N. S. and absolved him from heresy. He received baptism conditionally in Cascumpec vestry in the presence of John McIntyre - Peter McIntyre". (St. Anthony's Roman Catholic Church Register, Bloomfield, PEI, Acc 3271/40 & 41)

It appears that Duncan was married in Cascumpec church and conditionally baptized at the time. He was later baptized "formally".

Following contributed by various family members:

*It said by the time of the 1881 census Catherine had died and with all the children I thought it would only be natural for them to reside with other family members, Catherine's sister Elizabeth McDonald Stone.

*Duncan Monroe's moved to New Haven, Connecticut this was where Catherine's brother, Michael, and his family had moved to in 1880.

*Duncan Monroe in 1900 New Haven, Connecticut census: He married Isabella Mcginnis in October 1881 and they had two daughters, Margaret & Loretta Monroe and also in the household (1900 census) was Louis McDonald, grandson. Duncan's birth was listed as PEI, May 1842, and occupation was ship carpenter.

*Duncan's son, Joseph, was also listed in the 1900 census with wife and children. Also, in 1882, Elizabeth Monroe married Robert McDonald.

*There was an Alexander McDonald living right next to the Stone/Monroe family property. The books I have don't list a wife's name. Also, right down the road is Frederick McDonald. Book states that Alexander and Frederick may have been brothers. So there may be a possibility that Alexander, Frederick, James, & John McDonald may have all been brothers and upon James' death they raised his children, Catherine, Elizabeth, Michael & John. This would answer the question on the marriage record that possibly John McDonald was Catherine's uncle who raised her with his wife Elizabeth McIntyre.

5. FREDERICK3 MACDONALD (JOHN DONALD2 MCDONALD, ALEXANDER1) was born October 02, 1814 in Barra Scotland. He married RACHEL GILLIS February 17, 1846 in St. Marys Parish Register, Indian River, daughter of ANGUS GILLIS and CHRISTANNA MCLEAN.

Notes for FREDERICK MACDONALD:

February 10, 1814 "Farquhar MacDonald, born of lawful wed of JOhn MacDonald and Elizabeth MacIntyre Bribheig, Sponsor Malcom Campbell in Do. annointed by Angus MacDonald: - from church register of St Brendans, Barra Scotland

At this time the family would have been Gaelic speaking, although church records were being maintained in English. Farquahar is an anglization of the Gaelic name Fear Char, which can also be rendered as Frederick in English.

Frederick was one of two witnesses at a baptism:

"1866 Baptism "On the same day (24 July 1866) I baptized Appolonius born on the 1st July of the lawful marriage of Donald McDonald and Martha Goff. Sponsors Al frederick McDonald and (sic) A Z Turdelle"(Cascumpec Roman Catholic Parish Church Register, St. Antoine de Cascumpec 10 Jan 1839 - 17 Nov 1868)"

Also, see marriage notes, Frederick is the son of John and Elizabeth

In the book "Along the North Shore" pg 333 Frederick McDonald, Catholic, and a Scottish immigrant,settled at Inverness, Lot 11 during the very early stages of the community's development. He was born about 1814 and by 1861 he was married with what would appear to have been two sons age 5-16 years,one son age 21-25 years and one daughter aged 5-16 years residing in the household. His wife , whose wife is not known, was aged 21-25 years at that time. In 1861 Fredrick was in possession of freehold land along the west side of the western road in present day Inverness. By 1880 the Inverness School and Post Office were both located at the front of his property facing the highway. In 1881 Frederick was a widower,and had one son,presumably ,John McDonald(1855) living in his household and assisting on the farm. In addition to his son, Frederick had a servant girl,Rachel Gillis(1848) and two small boys, Earnest Cain(1876) and Lazarus cain(1876),residing with him. The young boys were quite likely brothers: their relationship to Frederick is not known.Frederick had been a resident of Lot 11 as early as Nov. 12 1859 when he purchased a 25 acre freehold property from the colonial govt."

1896 Death reported " Sudden Death. Mr. Daniel MacDonald of Gough's Bridge Lot 10, did very suddenly last Friday morning. He was out and did the work around the place and on going into the house dropped dead, it is supposed from apoplexy. The deceased who was greatly esteemed and respected by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance returned some time ago from the United States where he had worked for some years. While working there last Fall he had a fall from a building sustaining injuries which no doubt had much to do with bringing on the fatal attack. He leaves a wife (a sister of Mr. Thomas Gough Summerside) six sons and six daughters to mourn their loss and they have the sympathy of the community in their sudden bereavement.

The funeral of the deceased took place Sunday afternoon, to Bloomfield and was very largely attended. The funeral services were performed by Rev. F. X. Gallant. (Summerside Journal, Wed April 29, 1896 p5 col1)

1896 Burial Daniel MacDonald On the 26th of April I have interred in the St. Anthony's Cemetery Bloomfield, the remains of Daniel MacDonald who died 24th inst. of heart disease aged ---- F. X. Gallant.( St. Anthony's Parish Register Bk 2, p 437)

Other information about Daniel provided by family member: "He was a Farmer. He was also a Magistrate (not yet confirmed) . He raised horses (Race, Driving and Work). In 1878, He purchased the 80 acres from Peter Pope. A few years later an extra eight acres was purchased from Hugh Goff for a frontage on the Goff Road. This road is now part of the Lady Slipper Drive. The Goff Bridge was built in 1854 and renewed in 1879"

1854 Baptism John MacDonald Born about 7 weeks ago, Baptized 12 April 1854 by Rev. P. MacIntyre, Parents: Daniel MacDonald and Martha Goff. Sponsors Joseph Murphy and Catherine Goff (St. Anthony's Bloomfield Parish Register Bk 1)

The following information supplied by family members:

* John lived in Boston, USA."

*I decided I'd look into that John McDonald - Blue Hills lead you wrote about some weeks ago. The 1900 census is indexed so that I found him in Milton (which is what I'd suspected that Blue Hills really meant), It's crazy, though. He and Ellen are on the same census page as Joseph Bernard & Caroline because they live on the same street. Also there is William Eustis who was the wealthy landowner (mining engineer) who employed Pop as a gardener. I already had this page but had never noticed John & Ellen. Notice that John says his father was born in Nova Scotia and mother in PEI. Ellen was a Massachusetts girl but her parents came from Ireland."

also

"I don't recognize street numbers and the references that are written have been writen over. However, Canton Ave. is Rte. 37 and the Eustis estate is south of Rte. 128, the circular route aroung Boston. The gatehouse (where my father was born) is very prominent on the east side of the road. There are no other buildings like it along the road. I did take pictures of it but the last visit was 1989, I think. Oddly, there was a West Point insignia decal on one of the carriage-way windows

*John G MacDonald in Boston in 1920, age 65, wife Ellen-61, sons Daniel B -34, and John C

21. John went to US in 1879. Wife and sons born in Boston"

* I have my father's baptismal certificate of January 26, [1899] showing named witnesses, John McDonald and Helen McDonald. Location of the baptism is Hyde Park. There is no church named, but the certificate is signed by Edw. J. Fraher [no title]. The certificate looks original but is not dated, though there is a space therefor. The handwriting is very clear. The name Helen might be a confusion because the writer misspelled Caroline's maiden name as Eberly [s/b Eberle]. This document came to me less than five years ago when our nephews cleaned out my sister's home after all three members of that family died in the span of 2 to 3 years. I never knew of the document until the boys sent it to me with some other old papers. I think I've mentioned in other correspondence that ."

Notes for PAULINUS MCDONALD:

Agriculturalist - 04/30/1916

Page Three, Column 3

Mcdonald Paulinus

The death occurred at Portland, Oregon, on April 7th, 1916, after a painful and protracted illness, which he bore with Christian patience and resignation to the Divine will, of Paulinus McDonald, a native of Lot 10, Prince County, P. E. Island, where he was born forty-nine years ago. After attending the district school at that place for some years he came to Summerside High School where he continued until he qualified for a teacher, which profession he followed for some time. Not finding the business of a teacher remunerative he engaged in the fresh fish business and store keeping. Fifteen years ago he moved with his family to the Pacific Coast and located in Portland, Oregon, where he remained until his death. After settling in Portland he edited the "Portland Labor Press" for some years, when he was appointed Principal of the Hoofman High School, a position which he held until his last illness.

The deceased was a man of exceedingly brilliant parts. In the full prime of manhood, in the midst of a life of energy, with his mind alert with ambition, a great intellect is stilled. Four brothers and four sisters survive him. One sister is at present in the Convent of Notre Dame, Charlottetown. Besides his disconsolate wife he leaves three daughters and two sons to mourn their loss. His funeral took place on the 10th inst., when his remains were followed from his late residence to the pro-Cathedral by a large procession of friends and well wishers desirous of paying the last tribute of respect to his memory. A solemn Mass of Requiem with deacon and sub-deacon was offered for the repose of his soul, after which all that was mortal of Paulinus McDonald was laid to rest on Calvary's Hill.

----

"In 1863 there were seven families residing on the site of present day Inverness,

In the autumn of 1864, not long after the birth of Confederation at the historic Charlottetown conference, a group of inhabitants of Lots 11& 12, assembled at the home of Hugh Callaghan,on the Western Road, to draw up a petition requesting the Board of Education in Charlottetown to establish a new school district in their area.

During the course of the meeting,and after considerable debate the name of "Inverness"

Was chosen for their young settlement, attribute to the highland city of the same name in Scotland. In 1865 Inverness school district came into existence. By 1871 there were eleven families in the district; these were the founders of the community;Hugh Callaghan farmer,Alexander Gillis, farmer, Daniel McDonald ,carpenter,Frederick McDonald farmer,,Michael McDonald ,hotel keeper,Angus McFadyen, shipbuilder, John McFadyen,shipbuilder, and Richard Stone,tailor. Only the McDonald and McFadyen remain in the community today. ("Along the North Shore" pg44)

At the junction of the Gillis and Western Roads where it was to remain until it was eventually closed in 1972. in 1890 Paulinaus Mcdonald became the district schoolmaster and remained for the succeeding seven years, the longest residency in the history of the of the community schoolhouse."

From family members

*" General Notes: Alexander was a Carpenter, a Farmer, a Boat Builder and a Blacksmith. His nickname was "Sandy" and or "Alex". Alexander and Flora lived at Goff's Bridge in Roxbury, Lot 10, Prince County, P.E.I, Canada. He bought the farm from his parents in 1887 for $2026.00. By that time there were cattle and equipment on the property. Alexander agreed to pay for his sister Minnie's education. She became "Sister Saint Rufina" of the Congregation of Notre Dame, and she taught in the Convent Schools of Souris and Charlottetown. She became the Mother Superior of the Mother House in Montreal, Quebec, Canada where she died.

At the time of the purchase Alex did not know that the farm was worth more than the soil which covered it. The Warren Paving Company was constructing roads in Prince County during the 1930's. They made tests to find gravel and located a deposit of it along the shoreline of Alex MacDonald's farm. In 1932, Alex sold them the rights to the gravel for thirty years, and the gravel pit area has now reverted back to the MacDonald's.

The pit has filled with water from springs in the immediate area, it is now a pond which is designated by the Provincial Department of Fisheries as a water area to be stocked with trout.

Notes added January 2005:

One of Alexander's daughters is still alive in Vancouver, Francis. she was born in 1915 and lived in PEI until after Alexander died in 1941.Thus she is a good living witness as to what life was like then and what Alexander was like.

1) Francis did not know exactly if Alexander spoke Gaelic, but, she said it would not surprise her. She told me Alexander "had a speech with a Gaelic accent". She said his speech sounded "Scotch" and he sometimes used words she did not recognize, did not know if it was Gaelic but she said it sounded like Gaelic. I told her the story of Alexander reciting a poem in 1941 in Gaelic to an assembled crowd of visitors before he died and she said that did not surprise her.

2) Personality wise, Alexander was a quiet man. He was very interested in politics and religon and was very active in politics, she said he used to work at the polls. When asked if his leanings would be considered conservative or liberal, she said Alexander was conservative. While he was not very religous in an outward way, he read the Bible a lot. He was not a tall man, she thought maybe around 5-10 or 9.

3) He had limited education, she thought he might have been educated only through the 3rd or 4rth year, and was largely self taught. She said he had alot of books for the times (although she added she had more books today then he had)

4) Alexander told most of the family history to his eldest

5) From an interview in 7/2005, she had recollections of Ceilidhs in the kitchen with fiddle music. She remembered that Alexander's brother Paulinus who went to Oregon was a good violin player. (Foot note: from a descendent, a number of members of that family play the violin today]

6) She remembers the old family home before it burned down around 1920+/-. This was the home, said to be L shaped, that Daniel built. Francis said this was a large building, a colonial styled home. She says she has a painting of it in her home that was made from comments that Leo had given. She has some recollections of what it was like inside
