Barney & Sarah MacTaggart in Portland, Maine c. 1850

Barney & Sarah MacTaggart in Portland, Maine c. 1850

Surnames: MacTaggart
Hi,

I'm looking for more information about my 3rd great grandparents, Barney and Sarah MacTaggart. Their son John Prince MacTaggart was born in Portland, Maine on 9/14/1849.

Barney may have been born in Scotland or Ireland c. 1829. Sarah was probably born in Scotland. Barney arrived in NY in 1846 and was naturalized in 1858 in Portland, ME.

I am looking for information about Barney (Barnard?) MacTaggart's parents, birthplace or anything else interesting about him. I'm also looking for Sarah's maiden name, her date of birth, their date of marriage, etc.

Census records list a Barney MacTaggart residing in Portland as late as 1870 but his wife's name is Maria. They have two sons, James and Peter. Sarah may have passed away and Maria may be his second wife but I can't find any info to support this guess.
