She is his second  wife & they had 3 children David,Catherine & Thomas. First wife Ellen Pearce ?1810- before 1839  children William & Mary born in New Brunswick .
Can find no arrival data from Ireland or any info at all on the 2 children Catherine & Thomas or siblings from previous marriage.
Any tips or leads would be greatly appreciated.

Actually, looking again at your post, I see your William died in 1847, however the death records for Andrew and Mary Ann clearly say father William and mother Ellen PEARS (or similar), so maybe this is not your William?  :-[

Yes I have death as 1847 and Ellen would have been deceased by 1839 as that was the  year William remarried to Isabelle Mulhearn.
Isabelle & Williams  son David Martin Dillon born 1843 St. Johnís moved to the US to Massacheussettes.
When he was 8 his mother died of Cholera in NB which he also contracted and when returned home his sibling s Thomas 4 & Catherine 6 weíre gone. Both born st Johns NB
No one seems to know what happened to them or anything about their mothers family Mulhearn

There are two references to a Thomas Dillion born about 1848 St Johns N.B. in the Seafarers of Atlantic Canada records.  These were vessels he served on that went between Halifax and London in 1870 and 1875.  There were a number of Dillon families in New Brunswick so can't link it to your Dillons.

Who is Joanna Murry (nee Dillon) - David Martin Dillon was looking for her as his stated half-sister?

How do you know David had siblings Thomas and Catherine?
