In case Florence MacDonald ever looks at this again, I have not heard from her in several years, I finally found proof of Malcolm McKinnon's parents. Florence and I were working on this, she had his ancestors but no proof on his parents. At the time could not connect the William and Isabell McKinnon, of Oakland, California, whom we suspected were his parents, to Malcolm McKinnon of Skamania Co. Washington.
