Looking for info on John Dunlap fr: Armagh County Ireland
« on: Thursday 01 October 20 20:32 BST (UK) »
Looking for information on John and Elizabeth Dunlap, married 1826 County Armagh. Birth dates are 1790-1 and1806-7. Came to Canada, Greer Settlement New Brunswick in 1836 with Elizabeth's father, James Greer, and mother, Mary. They also came with two children, John and James. Would like to know more about their life, relatives, where in Armagh County they came from.

There's an online tree at Ancestry that indicates there was an older daughter, Mary, born 1827 in Co. Armagh, died 1913 (place not given).

The issue is that this all occurs before civil registration began in Ireland (1845 for non Catholic marriages, 1864 for births and deaths), so you will need to look for church records. Therefore, religion will be important.  I find reference to them being Methodists in later Census, but likely adopted later, so perhaps Church of Ireland in the 1820s when they were married.

Other Greer siblings also came in 1836 according to the 1851 Canadian census.  Have you tracked them all down?

Thanks. We're aware of the other Greer siblings. As you said it's difficult to find more information
when so little seems to be available for that time period.
