I am trying to trace my grandfathers lineage. His name was James Gardiner Major born in December 1875, Liskeyborough, Armagh. His parents were Singleton Major and Margaret Hutchinson. Singleton's father I believe was Robert Major married to Margaret Gardiner. James left Ireland to help UK fight in the Boer War. He never returned to Ireland, after the war he stayed in South Africa and married a Florence Maude Simspon. Their children were Florence, Edith (my mother) James, Singleton, Maragret, Matilda, Alice, Fanny and a brother named Balfour. 

I know that James brother and sisters names were Singleton, George, Thomas, Robert,  Margaret, Fanny, Abigail and Emma. James I believe was the oldest boy but had an older sister, Maragret. 

I would greatly appreciate any information about James' parents, grandparents and further back. 

Thank you

Wendy.
