Hiram MARLING married Jane McDONALD in Jackson county (may have been town of either Seymour, or possibly Vernon) in Indiana about 1830 to 1840.
What i am actually seeking is ANY INFO about That MCDONALD Clan. The father of Jane McD was known as Alexander, but his real first name was probably William with middle name of Alexander, which is mainly what he went by. Sometimes also known as W.A. McDonald, and sometimes listed as McDANIEL.
I am TRYING to find out MORE on THIS McDonald clan, as to WHO was the McD GRANDFATHER of Jane, meaning who was Alexander McDonald's FATHER? And who was his Mother?
Did that McDonald clan come DIRECT FROM SCOTLAND? Was W.A. McD BORN THERE or Born in VA or KY circa 1781? What PART OF SCOTLAND did they all ORIGINATE From?
DID Any of the MARLING cousins inherit a McDONALD family BIBLE? Or any McDonald/Marling OLD Photos? Maybe cousins or descendants out there HAVE some of this iNFO? Glad to share. Thank you all!
