John McDonald House_Westmoreland Co., PA

Hello, Ardith,
Sorry for the tardy reply. I visit this site rarely.

I, too am a descendant of Sampson and Ann (McGrew) Wiley through their daughter, Elizabeth (Wiley)McDonald so that makes us cousins!
To answer your question, Alexander McDonald and wife, Livia Jane Watson were parents of the John McDonald who married Elizabeth Wiley. Alexander McDonald's father was another John McDonald whose
wife may have been named Eleanor. His father was a William McDonald. Their is possible Shawnee ancestry somewhere in this line which is supported by DNA evidence but not sure if it is from the McDonalds or the allied families of McGrew, Reed,Wilson, Dutton,or Watson. Sampson Wiley emigrated from Co. Tyrone, NIR

I would love to hear what you have learned about the Wiley's. I'd also like to contact living descendants of the
McDonald, Reed, Jarvis, Wilson, Watson, Fisher, Lightburn, and Dutton families of Westmoreland Co., PA and Morgan/Washington Cos., OH.

Hope you get this message! Please contact me by email.

All the best,
