Biographical history

Elizabeth Ann "Lizzie" Boyd was born in Cape Rich, Grey County, Ontario, in 1853 to Samuel C. Boyd. On September 21, 1872 she married her cousin, John Chantler McDougall. John Chantler McDougall was born at Owen Sound, Canada West, on 27 December 1842, the eldest son of Reverend George Millward McDougall and Elizabeth Chantler. McDougall entered the ministry in 1866 and was ordained in the Methodist Church in 1874. Soon after marrying, Elizabeth and John departed Ontario for western Canada to work as missionaries. Although initially posted at Pigeon Lake, in November of 1873, Elizabeth and John established a mission among the Stoney Peoples at Morleyville. As missionaries, the McDougall's were involved in the formation of treaties with First Nations Peoples of Alberta. The McDougalls had six children, George Millward, 1876-1948, John Boyd, 1878-1943, Morley Samuel, 1881-1956, Lillian (Graham), 1884-1973, David Livingstone, 1891-1972, and Douglas Judson, 1896-1965. In 1899, Elizabeth and John moved from Morley to Calgary and built a house called Nekenon (Our Home) at 230 - 6th Avenue SE. John McDougall died in 1917, and Elizabeth died in 1941.
