 “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
