I am looking for Jame Josedph TATE born 1`818 in County Armagh, Irelandf and Jane Elizabeth SOMERVILLE, born Jan 3, 1819 in County Armagh. They wqere married in Glasgow, Scotland Jan. 3, 1840 and they had 6 children: George Alexander born April 16, 1842: Robert born Oct. 1844 Died March 1846 in Glasgow; James born Feb. 1846, dieds March 1847 in Glasgow; James (2nd) born March 1848, died Dec. 1848; Mary Jane born April 15, 1850, died April 15, 1850; John James born May 28, 1851. The parents, George & John emmigrated to North America around 1852, settled in Detroit and homesteaded in Brooke Township, Lambton County in what is now Ontario Canada Jan. 1855. They were in Detroit about a year. My great-grandfather Joseph was born March 1, 1855 on the family farm. He was the first born in Canada. George would eventually xettle in the Sate of Michigan. Around 1891 the family name in Canada was changed to TAIT, although there are reletives still usin the original spelling in Canada as well as those in the United States.
Any help, especially in the Glasgow period would be grateful as this would finalize one portion of their life ( that portion while living in Scotland).
