Mary Margaret MacDougall was also known as Mary McDougal.2 She was born circa 1770 at Scotland.1 It seems that Donald Nicholson took up with Mary Margaret MacDougall but no marriage certificate has been found. Donald and Mary had a number of children. There is good evidence to think that Anne (c.1795), Fanny (c.1805) and Donald were his children; Margaret (c.1805) and James (c.1796) probably were; a there may have been a number of other children of the union but the available evidence is not strong. Mary and Donald Nicholson may have become the parents of Anne Nicholson circa 1803 at Perth, Scotland.3 Mary and Donald Nicholson became the parents of Donald Nicholson on Sunday, 12 January 1812 at the Parish of Assynt, Sutherland, Scotland.4,5

Mary died circa 1841 at Scotland.1

Mary died before 20 December 1869.6
