Dunlops in Canada, Borneo and Los Angeles, California

I am researching the family of Henry Dunlop, cotton spinner and merchant, and Lord Provost of Glasgow 1837-1840, and his wife Alexina Rankin.

Their 2nd son Henry (1834-1900) and his wife Sarah Mackay (1837-?) emigrated to Canada by 1864, and later moved to the USA. In 1880, Henry and his family were living in New York, in the 5th Ward, Troy, Rensselaer; Henry worked as a spinner. They then moved to California, where Henry and 3 of his sons were farming in Los Angeles in 1900.

The children were:
1) William McKay Dunlop, b. 1864 Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada; d. 1926, Los Angeles, California. Divorced. Lived in Los Angeles, where in 1900, he was a farmer; in 1910, a laundryman.

2) James Ellis Dunlop, b. 1866 Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, d. before 1930. Married Emma; two daughters, Elizabeth and Louise. Lived in Los Angeles, where in 1900, he was a farmer; in 1910, a manager of something illegible in the census.

3) Alexander R. Dunlop, b. ca 1868 Picton, Nova Scotia, Canada; apparently died 1950, Sussex, England. A District Officer in Borneo. Married ?Myfany; two daughters.

4) Charles E. Dunlop, b. 1871 Nova Scotia. Married Berta; one son, Henry B. Dunlop. He lived in Los Angeles, where in 1900, he was a farmer; in 1910, a laundryman; in 1920 and 1930, a railroad conductor.

I would be interested to hear from anyone descended from these Dunlops. (The information I have given above is based on family trees passed down in UK branches of Dunlops, plus US censuses. If any of it is wrong, I'd be glad to hear.)
