Ninety-eight years ago, on the island of South Uist, Invernesshire, Scotland, was born the subject of this sketch, the late Roderick McDonald in the year 1792. He, with his Father, brothers and sisters, emigrated to this Island in the year 1802, when he was ten years old. He lived for a short time in Grand River, whence he removed to Burnt Point , Georgetown Royalty, where he took up land, faced the forest, and began the life of a pioneer, with which life in those days there were many hardships connected. Mr. McDonald was a prosperous farmer. Being of an industrious disposition, he accumulated considerable property and lived in comfortable circumstances. He was the father of twelve children, eleven of whom survive him; also forty-two grandchildren. Personally he was genial, hospitable and considerate; to the sick he was humane and generous. As his life covered almost a century, ninety-eight years - he remembered the time that King's County was one unbroken wilderness, and the ring of the woodman's axe was all that broke it's solitude. He also remembered the time when where it's capital, Georgetown, now stands, was a solid hardwood forest. Indeed he may be called one of the pioneers of Kings County. He was a man of robust constitution, and had a wonderful memory which he retained until the last hours. After three months suffering, which he bore with Christian resignation, he peacefully passed away, fortified by the rites of his church. Surrounded by his family and friends, he breathed his last on the morning of January 17th.
