His father’s family is originally Jamaican and came to Haiti during the first American occupation of Haiti in early twentieth century. MacFarlane’s father settled in Haiti, became a naturalized citizen and married into a Haitian family. The family moved to New York City in the 1960’s where MacFarlane completed high school. It was there, in an English class, that he met his wife Marie-Josée, whose family had also immigrated during the same period of time to the United States.
