Edward McDonald

Edward McDonald, Deputy Reeve of Walkerton
Mr. McDonald may be ranked as a fair specimen of our best class of self-made men

"Edward McDonald, of Walkerton is a native of Glasgow, Scotland, whence his father, John McDonald, a cotton-spinner by trade, emigrated to Canada in 1843, when Edward was two years old, settling in the Township of Toronto, where he remained some years, removing with the family in 1870 to Walkerton, where he died in 1875, at the age of 72 years.  The subject of this sketch remained on the farm on the Durham Road where his father's family originally settled, till 1872, when he removed to Walkerton, and has since been engaged in the grain and produce trade. He has been more or less identified with public affairs for a long time back, having been a License Inspector for three years, and Deputy Reeve of the Town of Walkerton for several terms.

Mr. McDonald may be ranked as a fair specimen of our best class of self-made men, his family having come to the country in extreme poverty, and he, by dint of energy and honesty, having acquired a pecuniary competence and a place in the local annals of his adopted country which only the possession and exercise of the most commendable attributes can secure."
