He married Sarah McMillan and they had three children.
John Duncan was the second of three, and he married
Margaret Greer. They had four children, the second

1948 and they had four children. John McIntryre
homesteaded and over time more land was bought around
the original homestead and the land was passed on to

experience of this Scottish immigrant, and the family
history of the MacDonald's.
