Macdonnell (married to Marie's Aunt Min); as well as the two 1870 journals/diaries kept by fellow Ontario Rifle military men, Griffith Wainwright and D.H. Macmillan, who were with Sam on the 1870 trek to Manitoba to deal with the first Louis Riel uprising. Two hand-drawn and annotated maps were tucked into the diary kept by Major Wainwright and are included here.
