Title: Re: [nscumber] d/o William Reid & Mary Joyce
Hi again Jim:

Ever try searching on NSARM Vitals for Angus McDonald or Catherine McDonald.

Then there’s the possibility of MacDonald.

There’s literally 100’s of both.

Hi Jim:

You might be on to something here and it’s Sight Point not Side Point.

One assumes most Cape Bretoners were Coal Miners but necessarily.

In this case, Angus McDonald was a Lumberman and may possibly have been from Cape Breton.
