Hello Albert,

 

Thank you for your patience; I had a family emergency which demanded my attention.

 

I assume from the information you provided that you are looking for information/vital statistics on Robert while he was still in Ireland. I have located two possible matches for your Robert.

 

On Ancestry.com there are two family trees which contain a Robert Carson who was born in Tyrone, Northern Ireland in 1836, arrived in Canada in 1846, and died in New Brunswick, Canada 26 June 1894. His parents were William Carson (b.1811 & d. 1872) and Jane Ann Roberts (b.1815 & d. 1887). One of the trees shows he married Annie Mackie on 2 October 1855 in Lancashire, England. There are no source citations for any of the information in either of these family trees, so all of the information is suspect.

 

The other Robert Carson was born in Newry, Down, Ireland. His parents were William Carson and Isabella Black. He had a sister, Matilda Jane Irwin born 1835 and a brother, John born 1832.

I hope this helps.
