Ranald McDonald, was the only son of Archibald McDonald, Chief Factor for the Hudson's Bay Company, and Princess Raven, daughter of Chief Comcomly of the Clatsop Indian Tribe.
McDonald was born at what is now Astoria, Oregon, when his father was stationed at Fort George,
(formerly and subsequently Fort Astoria).
McDonald's gravesite is commemorated as a Washington State Park on the Kettle River, just south of the Canadian border. As a boy of 10 or 12, McDonald learned Japanese from shipwrecked sailors at Fort Vancouver. He entered feudal Japan in 1848 and helped pave the way for its modernization.
