John and Margaret emigrated with their family from County Leitrim, Ireland to Upper Canada and apparently settled in Brock Township, Ontario. In the 1850's some of their family relocated to the recently surveyed Queen's Bush, Bruce County, Ontario, settling in Elderslie Township and the Village of Paisley.
