Carolyn Corey is a dear friend of Clan Donald, residing in the Mission Valley of Montana whence conducted extensive research on The Hudson’s Bay Company. Recently she published a monumental study.” Eric Wilson, editor of “THE SIGNAL” Clan Donald Newletter, July 2022

I was aware that there has been no comprehensive study of all the people involved within 1846-71 time period of the building, occupation & business of Fort Connah. As I researched these men I became aware of the significance of their primarily Scottish &/or mixed breed ancestry & the connections they had with each other, several intertwined with the well-known McDonald family. I decided to write about this dynamic 25 year period so that I could share with others this vital new information. I suggest further research on the Indian & Metis wives & daughters of these fur traders who were the important link to the mixed blood ancestral legacy of these pioneering men. Many of their descendants are living on the Flathead Reservation."
