Duncan & Grace were my GGGgparents. I have found no connection to anywhere on the Prairies.
Duncan was a weaver, and emigrated to Canada with the family about 1852, but I have not located a death record. Some family papers suggest they went first to somewhere near Chatham, Ontario (no proof of this that I have found) but had moved to Chinguacousy, Ont within a year or two. He shows in both the 1861 & 1871 censuses, living with one of his married daughters in Caledon Twp.
Grace also emigrated with family in 1852, according to family papers, but I have never found a record of her in Canada. She is not seen in the 1861 census above, so probably died between 1852 and 1861.

Do you know if this Duncan McNab was sent to Canada - i.e. Winnipeg or Red River?
