Fralton MacDonald is noted as the father and Nest Douglass as the mother of Douglass Darling MacDonald b.1869 (MacDonald-3623) in his marriage license at Kalispell, Montana in 1908.

I have found no further record of Fralton. Am unsure if St. Nichols records are digitized.

Fralton is a surname, though fairly rare. May be worth looking to see if you can find a marriage between a MacDonald/McDonald and a Fralton that could have been the reason for his first name.

I also considered how the name may have been mangled by misunderstanding of Scottish accents. This may be a wild goose chase, but in the 1841 census for Peterhead, Aberdeenshire there is a Fulerton MacDonald. He is 60 at the time, but it could be worth looking at his grandchildren to see if one could have been your Fralton.
