McElwains from Mountmellick

Looking for family information for James Alexander MCELWAIN who was born at Mountmellick in 1826. He joined the 65th Regiment of Foot in 1843 then went to New Zealand with the Regiment as a bugler and private. He married Jane BROWN (from England) in 1855 and after being discharged from the military, set up a shoemaker shop in Wanganui in 1861.

I hope someone can tell me who his siblings and parents were and anything else....I would be very grateful!

Thank you!
