Pokagon, Cass Co., MI for Alva McDonald

I am looking for my g-g-grandfather, Alva McDonald. He was born 14 February 1830, in Vermont. He died in Chico, Butte Co., California 14 May 1876. He joined the 42nd Illinois Regiment 1 Aug. 1861 and mustered out 3 October 1864, in Illinois. He married Ann E. Pye (Riley) 15 November 1865 in Du Page County, Ill. They had one son. At the time of his death, it is shown on the records at the California cemetery that he was survived by a wife and 4 children. I am wondering, since he was 35 when he married Ann, if he had a former wife and children in Pokagon, Michigan. If anyone has any information, please e-mail me at
Thank you, Darlene
