according to a census from cbi for baddeck forks, donald macaskill was 70 yo.the census was dated 1871 which wld seem to prove donald was born in 1801. he was born in berneragh , son of neil macaskill, farmer. he died april 10 1873 at baddeck. wife mary 54 yo and sons neil 24 and malcolm 23. neil is my great grandfather who mleft cbi for nb and became a justice of the peace and a farmer there. as far a i know malcolm had only one son dan john who died very young. there was a sister sarah who apparently was much older and may have been from an earlier marriage of donald to rachel who died either in scotland before emigration or in cbi after arrival. donald's second wife mary macleod is the mother of neil and malcolm. does this answer your question. sorry i took so long but have been away from my genealogy work for a while.
