  • Notes 
    • John had come to Canada to participate in that year's harvest in August or September. The reasoning behind the move from Ireland without Isabella has not been determined. His three children born to Isabella remained in Belfast until August 1909, when his sister, Agnes McClelland brought them to Calgary to join him
