I am not an expert on the Algoe family but will give my best shot. John Algoe born about 1788 in Scotland he later died in Groveland Twp of Oakland County Michigan on November 5, 1845. John married Margaret W. "McRath" who was born about 1790 in Scotland and died in Groveland. They lived in New Brunswick Canada a number of years before immigrating to the United States about 1836. Offspring may include the following; Elizabeth Algoe Wright b 7Nov1813, Lewis b 1814, Robert b 1819, William b 18Dec1825, James A. b 30May1830,John b 1834, Isabella b 1835 and Catherine b 1836.
