Our thanks to Roland Dunbrack for the following info:-

Alexander Dunbrack, the first son of John and Catherine MacDougall Dunbrack was born September 1, 1786 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He married Isabella "Belle" Cruickshank on August 6, 1824. "Belle" was born August 18, 1788 in Gaich, Cromdale, Speyside, Morayshire, in the Highlands of Scotland. Alexander and Belle moved with most of their family to Minnesota with the Dickeys, Creelmans, Lydiards, Logans, to name a few. Upon the death of Alexander's only son without issue, two older sons had died unmarried, the Dunbrack name died out there.
