The Atlas was published in 1881. Were your families already in the US by

I looked on the 1851 Eldon, Victoria Co census and on the agricultural
census Peter was on Concession 2, East half of Lot 3.

The only Hugh McDonald that I found on that 1851 census was 12 years
old, son of Alex, age 37 & Christie, age 29, McDonald who lived on
Concession 5, Lot 8. Neal McDonald was on the next lot, 7.

In the 1881 Atlas, there is no one shown on Peter's lot number and "A.
McDonald" appears to be the owner of Lot 7 Conc 5, from what I can
see. You can look at the map here:


bottom left quadrant.

The Roman numerals running sideways are the Concession numbers and the
arabic numerals running vertically are the Lot numbers. Find both
Conc 5, Lot 7 and Conc 2 Lot 3 to see where they are in relation to
one another.

>From the Atlas:

Last Name McDonald
First Name A.
