James Allingham

I am searching for more informtion on James Allingham , my 2nd great grandfather who was born about 1805 in Ireland. He  emigrated to Kingston Twp, Co Frontenac, Ontario Canada around 1824. The Kingston Newspaper  stated there was a letter  waiting for him in 1829.  I believe James was born in  Co Leitrim.  One of James ' children thought James came from Sligo Town.  James' married Eliza Jane Bruce (his neighbour) in Canada .  The marriage record, death record, Canadian Census records do not indicate more than he was born in Ireland . His religion on the 1851 Cenus is recorded as English Church; in 1871 Presbyterian Methodist. James' children were named as follows:: Elizabeth Jane (1831) , James Jr, Margaret Mary, Mary, Thomas, Robert ,George, John, Letitia, Francis and Samuel (1858).. Letita and Samuel are most likely "Bruce"  related names.  A Francis Allingham , of Cregg, ( b. 5 April 1812 in Killasnet son of John Allingham(1776) and Jane )  m. Eliza Jane Johnston daughter of Edward Johnston in Drumcliff, Sligo 4 Dec 1847. Witnesses were Robert and Jane Allingham.  Francis and Eliza Jane Allingham emigrated to Canada in 1851 and farmed in the same village as James  Allingham.  I believe he is somehow related. I could not find the birth of James(1805) in the Drumcliff or Cloonclate parish records. Francis (1812) baptism record above  was in the Cloonclare parish record but not James as he was born before the Church was built.  There is a Cloonclare baptism record for a Robert  Allingham(1809)  also son of John Allingham and Jane . John Allingham and Jane appear to have had otherchildren.   John Aligam (1794), of SracreeghanGeorge Allingham (1796) of Sracreeghan , Thomas Allingham (1798) of Sracreeghan , Mary Allingham (1802).  I think John Allingham (1776) may be the son of John Aligam/Allingham, (1743) Cooper of Sligo .  I have  a few DNA matches  with a descendants of  John  (1776) and John (1743).   I would like to establish the parents and grandparents of my James Allingham . i appreciate any suggestions for finding information on James. Thank you
