Thomas McDonald, the most popular cream collector for Newman Brothers has retired from his situation and contemplates migrating to the north.
Orillia Times May 26, 1907 Rathburn
The artistic and massive butter factory which has been undergoing erection for the past six weeks is nearing completion.  It makes a great boon to this locality.  And will greatly lessen the slavish work of churning butter and peddling to the limited retailer.  The patrons will also receive a higher price for the butter as Newman Bros. manufacture only first class articles..  The cream is gathered, manufacture and put upon the best wholesale market for the small cost of 4 cents per pound.  Newman Bros. prepose giving a free picnic at the opening of the factory, in the course of a couple of weeks.

 “Seeking relatives of  SARAH McDonald 1853-1923 -She is the granddaughter of Alexander Blacksmith McDonald of North Mara. Her mother is Mary, daughter of Alex Blacksmith – Mary McDonald b 1833, m Donald Tailor McD in 1854. (a separate McDonald family)

-On this website I searched all family names & found a Steele family tree that seems to match mine. Ann Steele was the mother of Donald Tailor McDonald (1818-1898) who is Sarah’s father. The submitter of the Steele chart is Trisha Bazilewich. On p 580 in They Came From Mara, the man called ‘Donald Tailor’ married Mary, daughter of Alex Blacksmith. In 1 of the historical clippings it seemed they thought he was a son, not so. He was married to the daughter. Sarah was also the cousin to the boat Captain on Lake Simcoe, A. B. McDonald.
SARAH McDonald was my great grandmother. -Lisa Mackenzie, Edmonton
