there is a very good chance that you are not related at all through this line.i did not recognize the occupations you listed.i had always heard that they went to canada to export grain to ireland in the early 1830s.then the famine in the 1840s wiped out that business, i guess.they came to the usa in the 1870s to be farmers.
