(male)
Father: Archibald MCDOUGALL (d. AFT 1764)
Mother: Christian MCINTYRE (d. AFT 1764)

No record after enlistment, and not in land transactions involving lot 109, so he probably died without issue.

John MCDOUGALL       (ID #I19024)

(male)
Father: Alexander MCDOUGALL (b. CIR 1730, d. BEF 11 FEB 1793)
Mother: Catherine MCDONNELL (d. BEF 1793)

Family 1 : Elizabeth BEATTY (b. 28 MAY 1757, d. 11 APR 1820)
  1. +Catharine MCDOUGALL (b. 7 NOV 1779, d. 18 FEB 1867)
  2. +Alexander J. MCDOUGALL (b. 27 NOV 1781, d. 30 JUL 1850)
  3. +James MCDOUGALL (b. 10 JAN 1783, d. 10 SEP 1862)
  4. +Elizabeth MCDOUGALL (b. 2 MAY 1786, d. 13 JUL 1845)
  5. +Anne MCDOUGALL (b. 22 JUL 1788, d. 6 OCT 1862)
  6. +John J. (James?) MCDOUGALL (b. 7 DEC 1790, d. 17 AUG 1836)
  7. +Daniel J. MCDOUGALL (b. 4 MAR 1794, d. AFT 1865)
  8.  Jeannette (Jane) MCDOUGALL (b. 16 MAY 1795, d. 25 APR 1838)
  9. +Margaret MCDOUGALL (b. 2 DEC 1797, d. 9 NOV 1882)
  10. +Joseph MCDOUGALL (b. 7 AUG 1800, d. 18 AUG 1856)

Deed of 11 nov 1825 (S-150) involves all the heirs at law: Joseph McDougall buys from Daniel and Catherine Livingston, Daniel McDougall (wife Catherine not listed in index), Alexander and Elizabeth McDougall, John J. (?) and Margaret McDougall, James and Jane McDougall, Alexander and Margaret McNeil, Daniel and Anne McNeil, Daniel and Jane Walker, and Henry and Elizabeth Tinkey. See also S-185, 16 jan 1826.

The membership roll of the First Presbyterian Church of Argyle, assumed to date from about 1802, shows the following for this family:

John McDougall Elizabeth (i.e., John's wife) Alex (b. 1781) James (b. 1783) Anne (b. 1786) Elizabeth (b. 1788) John (b. 1790, thus age 12 in 1802)

The remaining children were evidently not yet confirmed at the time the list was prepared, or else the list actually was created about 1790.

[6773]

Will dated 05apr1813, probated May 1813, mentions wife Elizabeth, children Catherine, Elizabeth, Ann, Jane, Margaret, Alexander, John, Daniel, James.

[14533]

Bride was dau. of Capt. James and Catherine Jersey Beatty.

John MCDOUGALL       (ID #I20068)

(male)
Father: The Washington County NY MCDOUGALLS (dates unknown)

Family 1 : Elvira URAN (b. 11 JUN 1812, d. 26 FEB 1900)
  1. +John R. MCDOUGALL (b. 27 JAN 1834, d. 9 DEC 1906)
  2.  David Gordon MCDOUGALL (b. 21 NOV 1835, d. 11 FEB 1836)
  3. +Sarah Eleanor MCDOUGALL (b. 28 JAN 1837, d. 30 MAR 1928)
  4. +William James MCDOUGALL (b. 27 FEB 1839, d. 21 MAR 1884)
  5. +Hester Ann MCDOUGALL (b. 29 MAY 1841, d. 04 SEP 1916)
  6. +Phebe Jane MCDOUGALL (b. 26 SEP 1843, d. 10 JAN 1926)
  7. +Mary Elizabeth MCDOUGALL (b. 11 JUN 1847, d. 3 MAR 1938)
  8. +Carrie (Candace) Elvira MCDOUGALL (b. 20 MAY 1851, d. 9 FEB 1942)
  9. +Lucinda (Louise?) H. MCDOUGALL (b. 13 AUG 1853, d. 31 JAN 1936)

The first census record for this family is in 1840, St. Lawrence Co., NY p. 147 (Lisbon), a listing for John McDugald (1 male 0-5, 1 male 5-10, 1 male 30-40, 1 female 0-5, 1 female 20-30) — no other relatives evident in Lisbon. A James McDougall family in Rossie, St. Lawrence Co., came from Scotland or England about 1817, thus not believed to be a relative. Birthplaces of the children of John and Elvira suggest migration, perhaps by way of Canada, to Wisconsin about 1845 (however, the obituary of his daughter Sarah says the family crossed the Great Lakes and landed at Fort Dearborn, Michigan, about 1846), then to Illinois about 1849, then Clinton Co., Iowa about 1852 (per obituaries of Carrie E. McDougall Reedy and Sarah E. McDougall Hullinger). The family seems to have stayed in Clinton Co. until the late 1860's (marriages of children there). Court records put them in Linn Co., IA around 1870, but they seem to have left before the 1870 census. By 1871 (marriage records) they are apparently in Greene Co., IA. Carrie McDougall's obituary shows them moving to Hubbard, NE (Dakota Co.), but this might be Hubbard, IA (Hardin Co.) sometime between Linn Co. and Greene Co. Her parents are in Harlan Co., NE by 1880. Deed records there should be examined to determine when they arrived. Family of Lucinda McDougall Grundy indicates they were in NE as early as 1876.

It is possible some members of the family lived with relatives at various times. Birthplace of Hester ("New York City") seems to be a detour, but not impossible. Marriage of an Elizabeth McDougall in Clinton Co., IA in 1860, and presence of Dugald McDougall in Linn Co., IA census in 1870, suggests there may be related McDougall families in that area, but none of these families has been followed up.

Information from Lorraine Wallace: Pension file of John R. McDougall includes a statement by S. D. Fitzgerald, who knew the family in Iowa as well as Kansas. He says that John McDougall Sr. "cut up" a man named Bullock and lost his farm over the incident. This happened in Linn Co., IA near Center Point sometime between 1868 and 1873. Lorraine has found deeds dated March 1870 in Linn Co., IA, in which John and Elvira sell their land. Who was this S. D. Fitzgerald? A friend, or a relative?

Information from Ernest Grundy: His grandmother, Lucinda McDougall Grundy, liked to pore through her memorial Civil War books, and told of her two brothers in that war (John R. and William James) and how one was wounded at the battle of Shiloh (John R. McDougall's discharge certificate notes that the ball remained permanently embedded in his left thigh, permanently interfering with the motions of the hip joint). Ernest Grundy's father told him how the McDougalls kept a station on the underground railroad just before the Civil War. When one of Lucinda's brothers took food down to the escaped slaves in their hideaway and heard their stories, he vowed he would join the Army some day and help put an end to slavery.

James R. McDougall has provided copies of pages from his grandfather John R. McDougall's family Bible, confirming John McDougall Sr.'s birthdate but not mentioning his death at all.

Each of the accounts of our John McDougall gives the impression, sometimes explicitly, that he was a difficult, argumentative man. His son John R. accused him of falsifying his homestead application. Other accounts paint him as a "hell fire and brimstone" preacher, associated with the "hardshell Baptists". He seems to have left Linn Co., IA as a direct result of a knife fight, and the family seems never to have stayed more than a few years in any one location.

With all branches of the family contacted except that of Phebe Jane, it does not appear that any recollection of the ancestry of John McDougall survives.

Probably the closest thing we have to a clue is contained in the records of the United Presbyterian Church of South Argyle, Washington Co., NY. The extant marriage records begin 1830, and on the second page appears "John McDougal & Miss Uran", dated 11 aug 1832, and apparently noting they are from the Hebron congregation. The Hebron congregation would presumably be the Presbyterian church there. The baptisms do not mention any of the McDougall children, nor do the Urans appear. However, there is a family list dating from approximately 1830, showing the following John McDougalls: John McDougald with family member John W., James 1st with family members James 2nd (wife Ellenor?) and likely his son John H., another James with family member John, Daniel with family member John B. The 1830 communicants list has 2 James as well as John (wife Mary) and Daniel (wife Catherine). There are also McDougalls in the records of the First Presbyterian Church of Argyle, but those begin about 1852.

Land records: Harlan Co., NE land entries include: John McDougal, land in Sec 32 (and part of 29?) T 1 N, R 18 W, 160 A, sale dated 24 oct 1872 (#461), final certificate 1162 issued 16 may 1878. A further cancelled entry in Sec 19 (159.56 A) is dated 12 sep 1879 (#2869), cancelled 20 oct 1885, reference #107467-1885. The latter occurred after his death, so may be correspondence noting date of death. Across the state line, Elvira tried to obtain land near her son's farm in Phillips Co., KS. Her application states that she has lived on "the place" since May, 1884. This might mean that John Sr. died shortly before that date. There is just a possibility that John McDougall survived long enough to have died after May 31, 1884, in Nebraska. In that case, he should be listed on the mortality schedule for the 1885 census of Nebraska, preserved at the National Archives. This possibility has not been checked. An item in the Columbus, Nebraska Journal for 24 may 1882 notes that John McDougall and his wife were then living in Richardson Co., likely with their son William.

The pattern of naming among the early Washington Co., NY, McDougalls generally follows the traditions of the English border lands. The first son is likely to be named after the father's father, and the second son after the father himself. If this pattern were followed, the most likely father of John would be John R. McDougall. Indeed, the only impediment to this attribution of parentage is the existence of a John Walter McDougall buried at South Argyle Presbyterian Church. Jennie Patten puts his dates as 24 apr 1810 - 17 jan 1831, and the published cemetery records show the same death date, but show age 24, resulting in a birth year of 1806, and with the inscription "son of John". Jennie's reading of the dates, evidently from correspondence before 1935, is probably the more credible. Further, there is a notation of a John W. in the family list of John R. McDougall and Mary Ann Harsha in the records of that church (early 1830's?), but that John W. is not noted as being dead. It is just possible that the John W. McDougall buried at South Argyle is not the son of John R. and Mary Ann, and that the John McDougall who married Elvira Uran is their true son.

Among the newspaper clippings from Clinton Co., IA, where the Hullinger family lived, we found an account of a most improbable reunion, on Thanksgiving Day, 1911, at which Phebe Jane McDougall, now Mrs. N. D. Strickland, was reunited with all but one of her sisters after a separation of sixty years. She had not even met one of her sisters! Phebe Jane had evidently been left behind in Illinois when the family moved on to Iowa, though the newspaper account did not explain what happened. She must have lived with some other family, perhaps one of the Dickersons or Dickensons, and eventually married Nelson Day Strickland. How a child less than 10 years old could be abandoned is almost beyond belief today, but perhaps she had displeased her extremely difficult father in some way and was taken into another household as a helper or even as an adopted child. The newspaper clipping is quoted in full in our account of Phebe Jane McDougall. A partial answer to this puzzle is found in Phebe's death record in McHenry Co., IL, which says she was the child of John Mcdougal and Harriet Dickerson, and that she was born in Canada! Did her father leave his family for a time and then return to them? After considerable research, this mystery now seems to be solved: Phebe was given up for adoption!

A weak genetic link between descendants of Carrie McDougall Reedy and descendants of Edward Town (Towne, Towns) and his wife Nancy McDougall, daughter of Ronald and Euphemia McDougall, suggests that our John McDougall might have been a grandson of Ronald and Euphemia. Very little is known about some of Ronald's descendants, though there is evidence suggesting that he was survived by 7 children. The Town family migrated to St. Lawrence Co., New York, and then to Ontario. Birthplaces for John McDougall's children also include St. Lawrence Co. and, apparently, Ontario. Also, Sarah McDougall Hullinger's obituary places her birth in Essex, New York, the same area (Elizabethtown) where Robert McDougall, apparently one of the 7 children of Ronald and Euphemia, lived for at least 40 years.

John MCDOUGALL       (ID #I19895)

(male)
Father: William MCDOUGALL (b. 1730, d. 7 JAN 1826)
Mother: Sarah GILLILAND (b. 1751, d. 26 APR 1818)

Possibly this John McDougall is the otherwise unidentified head of family in the 1830 census of Ft. Edward, p. 305. If so, he had at least 3 sons and apparently moved to PA after 1832. A census listing in 1835 for John Jr. could also be this person, though no children were living with the family and a female child had been born and died in the previous year. Fitch's notes based on Nathaniel McDougall (1847) indicate John died in PA, but do not

mention when or where.

Another possibility is that John went to PA with his brother Samuel, to Tioga Co. In 1830, there is a Rebecca McDougall age 30-40 with 2 younger females and one younger male living near Samuel. Rebecca must be the widow of a related McDougall, and John is the most likely one, the only one of his siblings (other than Robert and Andrew, who went to GA) who died before 1847, when Asa Fitch recorded information given by Nathaniel McDougall.

However, the will of John McDougall dated 18 jan 1837 and apparently recorded and entered into probate the same day, leaves his land in Washington Co., NY (apparently his only land, unless there was additional land involved in his share of the estates of his deceased brothers Robert and Andrew) to Nathaniel McDougall, with an additional cash bequest to his sister in law Polly McDougall for the education of her children. The widow Rebecca and the census listings in Washington Co. would therefore probably pertain to someone else. Executors of the will were Samuel McDougall and Buell Baldwin, then a county commissioner.

McDougall, and pension file includes correspondence from Jennie Patten, Mary MacMorris, and others. Family information from E. E. Sholly says John A. McDougall worked for the canal system, first in Toledo, OH, then Richland Co., then to Maples IN, where times were hard.

The farm there was sold for taxes, the first son died of an epidemic fever, etc. The family was active in the Methodist Church at New Haven, IN (Rachel buried there, IOOF cemetery), and the Taylor Chapel in St. Joseph Tp., Allen Co., IN.
