Hello McDonald's: I realize that this thread is a little out dated, but I thought I would throw this out and see if anyone is still working on this family group.
This is possibly my gg-grandparents; one of my cousins, also believes this to be our link as well?
"William Randolph McDonald, born abt. 1757 in VA., died 22 Jul, 1845 in Morgan or Lawrence Cty., AL. married to: Jane Byrd, born 15 Oct, 1780, died 24 Mar, 1831 in Morgan or Lawrence Cty., AL.
I believe William Randolph McDonald and Jane Byrd to be the parents of Elizabeth McDonald. [confirmation pending]"
My 2nd great [maternal] grandmother:
Elizabeth MCDONALD, born 17 Feb, 1820 in East TN., died 4 Dec, 1869 in Kansas, Walker County., Alabama.. married to James HOGAN, abt. 1838 in Kansas, Walker County., Alabama.

Due to the untimely death of my dear friend Patrick "Pat" Kelly, Oklahoma Commissioner of Clan Donald USA, just after Christmas 2007. I have been appointed to the position [have been] of Oklahoma Commissioner for the rest of Pat's term of office. This in addition to my duties as of the Commissioner of Oklahoma, Clan Donald USA.
Would love to hear from any Alabama - McDonald's, perhaps we are related?
