Sorry to see this so late! Do you know in what part of Butler Co., Pa. that Willam lived? I have one in my tree born later than yours. He was born in 1859.

Based on this history of Butler County Pennsylvania, 1803: there appears to be two John McDonalds: one a Senior, one a Junior:


As you propose a birth year of 1815 : I would suggest that the John McDonald Jr in this list may be the father?  Especially as in 1803 he was not listed as a single man: implying he was married.
