Archie & Mary’s children: Angus McDonell

Keith’s Uncle Angus appears in the baptismal records of the St. Alphonse Catholic Church.  Angus is under the name “Agnes,” as written by the parish priest.

Angus was born the 6th of August 1864 in Chichester, Pontiac Co., Quebec to Archibald and Mary McDonald.  Angus survived to live to the age of 66 years old. He married and had several children with descendants still living. 

Angus was somewhat of a mystery in family lore and in some ways still is, but his story is an interesting one.  He and his family will be featured in more detail in later posts.

You will not find Angus in the McDonell/McDonald family picture taken in Bemidji, Minnesota in the early 1900’s.   That photo was featured in the post dated March 20, 2010 and under “Angus McDonald” in the categories.

Another interesting fact about this baptismal record is that the father Archie is listed as Patrick Archibald McDonell.  Now I know where my friend found that first name.
