John ‘KING’ MacDonell UEL ca 1740-1816
This journey started with the finding of the obituary death notice of Margaret E Kennedy who died in Feb 1905 that I came across in the Glengarry News which stated that she was a niece of John Sandfield MacDonald and both were member so the King MacDonald/ells.
Margaret Mrs John S Kennedy was indeed a member of the King MacDonalds/ells dau of Alexander son of Catherine MacDonell dau of Alex bui King MacDonald son of John King MacDonell.
Margaret was not a niece of the Sandfield MacDonald brothers based on available present information.
Part 1 of this outline left unanswered questions which may or may not be clarified in the following updated outline.
Part 1 can be view in My MacDonalds of Loup, Lundie & Fraser line connections Version 3 under Margaret MacDonell- Mrs John S Kennedy. The article April 2011 is titled -- Is Margaret-Macdonald-Mrs-John-S-Kennedy-1841-1905-Rockland-Ontario-Actually-a-niece-of-the-Hon-John-Sandfield-MacDonald-The-King-MacDonalds-MacDonell Part1-- and can be viewed at http://scr.bi/ILjtZM
In Part 2 of this outline. I hope to clarify at least in part some of the confusion surrounding the King MacDonald/ell family. The possibility does exists that there are indeed 2 such John "KING" MacDonald/ell families based on the available information that I am aware off.
Which one does the Sandfield MacDonalds belong to is the question.
