Biography of McDougall, Duncan, 1837-1926

Born in the Red River Settlement in 1837, Duncan McDougall was the son of Duncan McDougall and Margaret McDonnell. The McDougall family lived near the junction of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, opposite the Forks, where Duncan was employed as a saddler for the Hudson’s Bay Company. He married Rosalie l’Espérance, with whom he had 14 children. The family lived in the parish of Ste.Agathe for 20 years before moving to Lorette. He died there in 1926. His association with Elzéar Lagimodière likely was the result of their residing in the same parish and would explain his involvement with the latter in the events of 1869-70. Based on information from La Société historique de Saint-Boniface.
