Can anyone help me find my Great + 3 Grandmother and Grandfather
« on: Thursday 23 July 20 12:52 BST (UK) »
Hello I have hit a brick wall. All I have is a typed copy of a Certificate of Birth and Baptism, dated 27th May 1844, was baptised Mary born the 26th instant of the legitimate marriage of Donald McDonald and Marcella Noílin the1st. Concession of Kenyon.
Sponsors: Angus Williams and Mrs. Catherine. Signed J. McDonald, Priest. Place of Baptism St Finnanís Cathedral, Alexandria, Ontario.
I donít know where to start! My Great +2 Grandmother whoís Baptism it was, married to a Henry Fletcher and their daughter Emily Mary was born in Toronto and moved to London with her parents and married Henry E  Allar a Huguenot descendant.

Emily is with her parents and sister Henrietta in the UK 1881 census. This is her birth record.
Emily Mary Fletcher
Birth 6 May 1875 at York, Ontario, Canada
Father - Henry Kossuth Fletcher
Mother - Mary Macdonald

Are you are looking to go back beyond Mary No'lin? and Donald McDonald?

Just to get our bearings, 1st Concession of Kenyon appears to refer to Kenyon Concession Rd 1. There are also Roads no  5,  4, 8 with what appear to be suburbs of Alexandria, South Glengarry, Nth Glengarry etc.
I have been looking at the 1851 Canada census on ancestry.com and am overwhelmed with all the McDonalds living in Kenyon alone but haven't come across a Marcella McDonald so can't tie them in to your Mary McDonald baptised 1844.

Hi thankyou everyone you have got the right Allarís, but I am really stuck on how to find Marcella Nolin and Donald McDonald, as there are lots of McDonalds in the Ontario records do you think by cutting it down to the Donald McDonald would there be less with that name?
