Memorable Manitobans: Donald Livingstone (1791-?)

Settler, boat builder.

Born in Islay, Scotland, he came to Red River with Owen Keveny in 1812. He worked as a boatwright in the settlement and was assigned Lot 37 by Lord Selkirk in 1817. He was appointed one of the settlement’s first constables that same year. He and his family left Red River for Cedar Grove, Iowa, in 1840.
