Years ago in the late 1990s I used to do craft shows at the McDonalds Corners Agricultural Hall and I never wanted to come home. I loved the women that volunteered there and I was always met with huge hugs. Even though what I sold was a bit odd for the area ( girls hair clips and accessories in ‘out there’ styles) I was welcomed like I had lived there for years. It reminded me of home and family when I was growing up as a child. I never ever forgot McDonald’s Corners and never will.

It was with great humour that I found this personal ad above from 1909. Something went missin’ from the oven’ as they say and the ‘chickens were squawking’. Now there was one main McDougall in the village so it had to be the daughters of John McDougall. He actually had 6 daughters and 3 sons.

So who started the story about the McDougall sisters? It was also nice for everyone to take their word for it. Did they ever find the fancy work? No, because what happens in Maberly stays in Maberly as they say.

The Scott Family of McDonald Corners
During the ‘Great War’ of 1914-1918, in which more than 60,000 Canadians were killed
and 172,000 wounded, nearly every family in the nation paid a price in blood, and some families
paid many times over. The Wood family of Winnipeg saw five sons killed and two more wounded.
The McDiarminds of Toronto lost three of their four boys. The West family of Kingslake, Ontario,
had three sons killed, two of them on the same day.
