Robert Cherry, born ca. 1835

Surnames: Cherry, Tankard
Looking for the parents and/or birthplace of Robert Cherry, born 01 Aug 1835.

He emigrated to the U.S. ca. 1874 and his census and naturalization papers alternately attribute his birthplace as either Ireland or England. He died in Massachusetts, U.S., 1907, and his death record identify his parents as John (James?) Cherry and Elizabeth Johnston. I have not had luck yet finding a match for his birth in any BMD index.

He married Jane Tankard of England (Northern Ireland?) in the early 1870s.

Cherry is a common surname to Antrim County, and am hoping someone might find his birth here. Thanks.
