I'm looking to further research for a friend on mine on the following family.I would like to find out where in Canada they were located and if anyone knows the ancestry of Joshua and Catherine (Applegrath) McAley.
I have a Joshua McAley, born in Canada that was married to Catherine Applegrath, born abt 1806 in Canada. They had the following children that I'm aware of: James H McAley, born Jun 1831 Canada Daniel McAley, born Mar 1835 Canada Chester McAley, born abt 1839 Canada Robert McAley, born Feb 1842 Canada Abigail "Abbie" McAley, born Sep 1846 Canada
