Looking for family of John McRae from Glengarry. John married Ann Urquhart August 5th 1858. He died in 1883. One of their children, John, born Maxville 1864 moved to BC.I think this was a large family. The youngest, Donald fought in the Boer war and also ended up in BC. There were other siblings: Cathrin, Christy, mary, Bella, Ellen, Annie, Flora, Margaret, Kenneth.
Any help would be appreciated.

Doubt there is a connection, but worth trying. I have information on Catherine and Annie MacRae whose father was John from the Middle River region of Nova Scotia.

The Donald McRae you speak of is my grandfather.
I don't have much information except that he went to Shelley Idaho then came back to Ontario and lived in Markstay. I know he had a logging business. He had three children son Stanley, Daughters Evelyn and Dorothy. Dorothy was my mother, she passed away Sept. 2007. My mom told me he had scars and hardly ever took his shirt off. He married Florence Laura Dial from Shelley Idaho. They were married at Severn Bridge, Ontario April 25, 1925. What information do you have on him. Now it makes sense on how he went to Idaho. I could never figure that out and I don't think my mom could either. Any help would be appreciated.
