The search continues... We have been tracking the descendants of David (Daniel) McDonald, Sr. (1740-1820 - possibly married to Hannah LeFlurgey) a U.E.L. from New Brunswick to Prince Edward County prior to 1820. We think we have narrowed down where Ann (Hannah) McDonald (who we are searching for) may fit into the family. She was either one of the youngest children of David, Sr. or a daughter of David, Sr.'s son Henry (b. 1787-1858). David, Sr. may have had a daughter, Susan b.~1800 and a son James b. ~1808, so it is possible there was a daughter Ann or Hannah born between these two, which would be the right age for having married Alex Greer between 1828-1830 (their first child, Henry, was born 1831-4-21). Henry McDonald seems to have been married twice, with possible sons from the first marriage Henry (b. ?), Nathaniel b. 1813, and Thomas b. 1821. There may have been a daughter, Ann or Hannah b. ~ 1805-1810, who would have been the right age to marry Alex Greer. Since Alex and Ann's first child was named Henry, this seems like a strong possibility. Family stories indicate that when Alex first came to P.E.C. in 1823, he worked for a McDonald and then married an Ann or Hannah McDonald. Alex and Ann are listed as Henry Greer's parents on his second marriage record and Ann is recorded as having been born in New Brunswick on one of their daughter's later census records. If anyone has any information to might confirm either of these two theories, please let us know. Thanks.
