NAME: Craig McDonald

My McDONALD ancestors lived in Shannon county during the 1850 census. Some of them, from looking at the ages of the children, looked like they lived there around 1846. The McDONALD's hailed from Jackson County, Tennessee. Most of these McDONALD's moved down South to Fannin County, Texas, which is in Northeast Texas. Some of the heads of the households in Shannon county, were William McDONALD, Henry McDONALD, Peter McDONALD and Nicholas McDONALD. I am especially interested in Peter McDONALD & Nicholas McDONALD (there are 2 of them in the 1850 census), for I know nothing about him. But I feel they are related to my family, because my great grandfather had a brother named Nicholas McDONALD and another brother named Peter McDONALD. I know this Peter McDONALD moved down to Fannin County, TX and died there in 1860. I don't know what happened to the two Nicholas McDONALD's. The SADLER family also hails from Jackson county, Tennessee and they migrated to Shannon County along with the McDONALD's. The SADLER's also migrated down to Fannin County, Texas.
