His wife was Isabel a daughter of Pioneer Robert MacInnes of Judique. They had a large family of whom the following married and left issue: Donald (whose family were John Ban and Ellen), Robert, Rory, Charles, Mary, Anne, Jane and Mary (Junior)

      "p. 605-610 Mabou Pioneers: "Iain Mor Mac Ruairidh owned a splendid property near Mabou Harbor Mouth."

      "Mabou Pioneers" contends that John McDonald was a native of the Isle of Canna.

      John Mor's sons Robert and Roderick remained on/near their father's land and raised their large families there, as did his single daughters and married daughter (on or next to said land) Mary Jr (Mrs. Ronald McDonald)
