Isabella O'Hara
March 12, 1870 - Jan 10, 1953
interred Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Vancouver, British Columbia
+Henry "Angus" McDonald - abt 1858 - aft 1924
interred in Saskatchewan

Angus and Isabella were married February 1, 1888 in Hurley, Wisconsin. The registration states Angus was a lumberman, born in Canada. His parents were John McDonald and Jennie Gunn. Hurley, Wisconsin is a twin city with Ironwood, Michigan. Esentially, one city divided by the state border.

Residing in Ironwood, Michigan was James A. Shouldice - an uncle to Isabella on her mother's side. He was also involved in the lumber industry. Perhaps that is how Isabella and Angus met.

Angus and Belle next appear on the 1900 Census for North Dakota, North Carlisle Township. The census indicates Angus immigrated to the states in 1873 - when Isabella was only 3 years old. The census also indicates their first child Edna was born in Canada so they must have returned to Canada right after their marriage.

They moved back to Wisconsin before 1892 when their second child George was born in Hurley, Wisconsin. The 1892 directory for Ironwood, Michigan lists H.A. McDonald, Sawyer.

Sometime before 1896 they moved to North Dakota where their fourth child was born.

Around 1910 they headed north to Saskatchewan. They loaded everything into one wagon and the children took turns walking. My grandmother, Verna, being one of the younger children remembered riding most of the way.

They settled near Semans or Nokomis, Saskatchewan, with their 10 children and I have found them in the 1916 census near Mount Hope. They were soon on the move again to Love Siding in north central Saskatchewan.

Joseph Walter O'Hara - July 1879 - bef 1942

According to the 1900 Census for North Carlisle Township, North Dakota, Walter O'Hara was a day labourer on the farm of Daniel Campbell. He was single at this time. Hazel Shaw, his neice, remembers that Walter had sleep apnea and the children would torment him by tieing him up when he fell asleep. He lived with Isabella and Angus in Saskatchewan prior to his death.
