We don't know his exact age but he died from mouth cancer from smoking a pipe and my grandmother remembers him being "older". Would expect someone would have to be at least 50 or so before getting mouth cancer from smoking. He was probably born 1825 to 1840 but really don't know. The mother also died sometime after her sister Nellie was born in 1893. His family came from Ireland to Canada but we don't know if he was born in Ireland or Canada. Our grandmother says he was born in Ireland. Too common of a name until we can make some connection.
