Hi Heather:

I think I can place you in the McDonald tree now.

In fact I see that I have the same info about the 1841 and 1851 census records as follows:
Alexander McDonald
BIRTH OPR Killin,Clackmannan,Scotland per Sheila Pitcairn
Parents unmarried but reg'd in both names in OPR for baptism. Entry on Page 24 of Register reads-
1826 Janry 12 - Alexander McDONALD & Helen DEWAR (Macqdu) had their natural son baptised, called ALEXANDER.

MARRIAGE: OPR Marriages of Alloa, Clackmannan : Alexander McDONALD & Jane RANKINE married 25 JUN, 1852...........Per Sheila Pitcairn (Researcher)

1851 CENSUS of ALLOA, CLACKMANNAN 359 Sched 146 Book 5 Candle Street.
Alexander McDONALD, Visitor, Unmarried, Tailor, born Killin, Perthshire
The wife of the head of the house was Janet CARMICHAEL (Nee Janet DEWAR),
sister of Alexander McDONALD's mother (Note Alexander was a tailor for a time in Australia)

1841 CENSUS of DUNBLANE, PERTH 348 Sched 137 Wester Feddal Folds.
Alexander McDONALD, 12, Ag.Lab. born in County
Ellen DEWAR 25 Fam.Serv, " " "

Have you visited Alexander's rather grand tombstone in Warrnambool?

If you send me your email address and we can compare more detailed information.
