|About McCallum - Donnelly & Relations
My Great Grandfather, James McCallum and his wife, Claire Dauphin, along with 4 children moved from
the Huntingdon area of Quebec to Portage Du Fort, Quebec around 1863-1864.
Once here they had three more children for a total of 7, who married into McGale, Delorme,
Sabourin, Bentley and Madore families.
On the other hand my great grand parents, John Ross and Nancy Driscoll came to Portage from Ireland
and married into the McDonald, Tremblay, Cameron, Bousquet and Campbell families.
These then are some of their descendants who continued to prosper and while many spread out over
the years, many still reside in the Ottawa Valley.
Michael's Family, the Donnellys settled in Burgess Township, Lanark County, Ontario and spread out
from there. They are all here, as far as I have found them. The Donnellys married into the Kellys,
Grants, Foleys, Quinns and the Shorkey Family from Ottawa and the beat goes on.
After that pretty well all families that passed through Portage Du Fort,Quebec as well as their
relatives are listed here. Just type in a last name, scroll down to first name and check it out.
If you would like to help please email me with any data you may have on these families or you can
change it yourself as long as you know the information is correct. Each member can change his/her
And FOR GOD'S SAKE, don't be afraid to use the guest book.
Anyone wanting a invitation to this website should note that I can accept anyone as a GUEST but if
I can connect you directly to any family here, I can invite you as FULL MEMBER and you can access
your family information.
I know that there are many of your children who are not on this site simply because NO ONE informed
me of their births etc.
So PLEASE UPDATE YOUR INFORMATION that's the whole point of this website, to help fill in the gaps,
BUT make sure what you put in is NOT already there. Just go to the Tree View of your family, if you
see a + sign, click on it to edit.
AND a big THANK YOU to Ken Desjardins whose books on a few of our local churches were a great help
and also to Todd Manary for many, many of the recent additions and corrections. And I would also
like to remember the earlier help of Elsie Sparrow for sometimes pointing me in right direction.
PLEASE NOTE. If you would like more info such as sources not given, email me. ALSO we DO NOT post
photos of people who are NOT on this site.
