James CAMAK/CAMMACK, b. June 1, 1784 in Ireland

I am searching for James CAMAK/CAMMACK, b. June 1, 1784 in Ireland (probably County Down).

This James was a twin of my ggg grandfather, Thomas CAMAK/CAMMACK. I have the following information from Cecil Cammack's book, "John and Margaret Purtle Cammack, Their Descendants and Connecting Lines", published 1983:

"His obituary states that "Thomas Camack, son of James and Mary (or Elizabeth) Camack, was born in the north of Ireland, 1 June 1784 and died at the home of his daughter Ann Bell near Crystal Springs, Copiah Co., Miss., 10 April 1860. His widowed mother, his eldest brother William, himself and his twin brother James emigrated to the United States to New York in the fall of 1797. He visited his uncle David Camack, a farmer near Charleston, S.C., remaining there several years."

Any help on this family would be much appreciated and happy to share information.
