John and Deborah Wright Chalmers, Scotland and Massachusetts

I am looking for information regarding John Chalmers, Born 10 May 1823, Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland, who married, Deborah Wright, Born 12 June, 1844, Dundee, Angus (formerly Forfar), Scotland on 29 December 1865, in Busby, Renfrew, Scotland. My records show that they had eight children, born in Busby or nearby in Sheddens. The children are: Susan Wright Chalmers, B. 1 Jul 1861, Elizabeth Wright Chalmers, B. 28 Jan 1864, Rebecca Chambers (sic), b. 4 Nov 1866, John Wright Chalmers, b. 9 Jan 1869, Margaret Chambers (sic), b. 1 Sep 1870, Jane Chambers (sic), b. 16 Jul 1873 George Wright Chalmers b. 16 Feb 1878 and Sarah (Sadie) b. 25 Sep. 1883. Records show that Elizabeth and Rebecca died young. Research has proven that the family emigrated from Scotland to New England in 1887, however, to date, a death date and location for the father John has not been located. The children who lived to adulthood married, Susan to Moses McKelvy (McKelvie), John to Mary Scullion, Margaret to James Wilson and James Stark Reid, Jane to Edward F. Anderson, George to Annie S. Stringer and Sarah to Ephraim Jeffery. I would be interested in gathering information about this family and welcome the opportunity to make contact with their descendants.
