Danielle,

I’d say James and Jeanette married in Canada had 3 children then went to Michigan after c.1864 but prior to c.1866, and had another there.

And that Walter Married a Mary in Canada then they, and Walter’s sister Agnes, went to California probably about 1878-1880 considering the Mary’s age.

See below:
