Birth: 1838, Ireland
Death: Apr. 6, 1900
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA

Born in Ireland, immigrated to Renfrewshire, Scotland with his family as a young man.

He fathered 14 children with his wife Mary Ashcroft. 8 of their children died at young ages. Later on in life, he, his wife and a good bit of the remaining 6 children moved to Philadelphia where he lived until his death.

His occupation was generally listed as an agricultural labourer and/or gardener.

Having lived in 3 different countries in his life, I've imagined he was was brave man. It takes a lot to pick up and go like that for a chance at a better life. I hope he found it in Philadelphia.

His birth date of 1838 is an "about" date. Listed as age 62 on 1900 death record. And a few years off on census records by one or two. And cemetery records list him at age 63.
