I am in search of William James Paisley b1805c Ireland.He married Mary Barnett Gibson also from Ireland.They had one child, Mary Jane Paisley b1832, Antrim, Ireland.This family emigrated to Ontario, Canada somewhere between 1832 - 1841.The next child was born in Kitley Falls, Ontario, Canada.
I have not been able to take William James Paisley back to Ireland.I have a good tree in Canada but I cannot find William James' PARENTS or SIBLINGS.The first male born was William John Paisley.Possibly William John Paisleys grandfather was William?However, there may have been other children born in Ireland that did not survive.
I have been searching through records in Ireland to see if I could find Gibson & Paisley families living in the same church or town.No luck.I did find Gibsons & Barnetts living in Lisburn, Antrim but no Paisley families came up.Belfast is next door.
When I do searches for Paisley it generates numerous articles about Ian Paisley, Paisley, Scotland and Paisley, Ontario, Canada.
My thought is that if the first child was born in Antrim then that is where the mothers family lived?
