Hi

I know this is an old posting, but to answer youq question. The McDougalds came from Ireland to America. They were sent to Ireland by the English who confiscated their land & titles in Scotland. Lots of unwritten history on the name McDougald, good luck on your investigation. Originally the McDougalds came from the West coast of Scotland. Most likely they were vikings named Dougald.
