McKee, Edgar, Carson - Saintfield/Boardmills/Killaney, County Down, Ireland

Surnames: McKee, Carson, Edgar
Hello, I am looking for the SIBLINGS of my great, great grandmother, MARGARET AGNES MCKEE, b. June 9, 1820 Saintfield/Presbyteian Boardmills, County Down, Ireland.

MARGARET AGNES MCKEE had two brothers that I know of - ROBERT MCKEE and JAMES MCKEE. Her parents were ROBERT MCKEE and MARY CARSON. There is a MARY CARSON b. August 6, 1784 at Presbyterian Boardmills, County Down with parents WILLIAM CARSON and MARGARET MACKELWAIN(different spellings), but there is no way I can be certain that THIS MARY CARSON is my MARGARET AGNES MCKEE'S mother!

MARGARET MCKEE married SAMUEL EDGAR, who was b. January 18, 1814 at Presbyterian Boardmills, County Down, son of JOHN EDGAR and MARGARET HARVEY. They married about 1842, probably in Saintfield or Presbyterian Boardmills. I do not know the exact date of their marriage but their first child Robert Edgar was bap. at Boardmills on August 5, 1843. Children of SAMUEL and Margaret were ROBERT (1843-died as child), MARGARET HARVEY (1845-1919), ROBERT MCKEE (1848-1931), MARY JANE (1852-1926), WILLIAM JOHN(1855-died b/f 1860) and AGNES(1858-died b/f 1860).

The family left (no William John or Agnes listed with family on ship's list) for Canada on Nov. 27, 1860 via Liverpool and New York on the "City of Baltimore" ship. The family eventually settled north of Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, near Apsley. SAMUEL EDGAR was a Stonemason.

I am not sure whether MARGARET MCKEE'S brothers ROBERT MCKEE or JAMES MCKEE ever came to Canada.

Any help on my family would be so appreciated! Thank you.
