*William MacDougall was the father-in-law of my 1st cousin 4x removed, Jane (Howard) MacDougall.  William's 2nd wife, Mary A. (Beatty) MacDougall, was the granddaughter of John and Sarah (Sproule) Beatty.  Jane (Howard) MacDougall was the daughter of Mary Jane Beatty and was also the granddaughter of John and Sarah (Sproule) Beatty.  Jane was married to Joseph Easton MacDougall, brother of Alfred C. MacDougall.  Helen Mildred (MacDougall) Cameron was Joseph and Jane's niece.  

The Howards were related to my grandfather, Ralph Newman Powers and the Camerons were related to me through my grandmother, Beatrice (Cameron) Powers.
