Colonel McDougal And His Uniform

"British Uniform Coatee Worn by Colonel Daniel McDougal when he was an Ensign at the Battle of Lundy’s Lane on July 25, 1814 (see below)."


"McDougal was born in...Scotland in 1782 and came to Canada with his parents who settled in Glengarry County. When the war broke out in June 1812, he was in the Glengarry Militia...".

Is this the same Daniel McDougal who is in an In Deeds post?

Records of the Niagara Historical Society indicated where Colonel Daniel McDougal was buried:

In the enclosure of the McDougal family is the grave of Col. D. McDougal, treasurer of the united counties of Lincoln, Welland and Haldimand for many years. He fought at Lundy's Lane and lay on the field all night, being reported as mortally wounded, but recovered, carrying in his body a bullet to his, grave. In the Historical Room is the original document authorizing Daniel McDougal to enlist men in Glengarry to serve in the war, dated April, 1813, E. McDonell.
