McCluskey Family from York (Toronto), Ontario

  of 829

George McCluskey was born 1812 in Belfast and died 1895 in Toronto. He married Mary Ann McClelland and they lived on Brown Street. In 1839, they emigrated to Canada. For a number of years they cannot be located. During this time I suspect they were living in the US somewhere. They returned to Toronto and settled on Louisa Street. George had learned the machinists trade from his father in Belfast and operated a machinist shop downstairs while the family lived upstairs. Mary Ann and some of their children died during a cholera outbreak. In 1855, George married Mrs. Ann Ritchy (nee Key), a widow with two children. In total, George had about seventeen children, though not all them survived childhood.
I believe it's possible that George had at least two younger brothers who were also living in the area, Henry and Patrick and possibly Edward.
If this sounds familiar to anyone, please let me know!
