James Rafferty 1823 - 1914

I am looking for information in connection to my Great great grandfather James Rafferty. He was born in Ireland in County Tyrone in 1823. After leaving Ireland, he lived in England and Scotland working on the railroad. He later imigrated to Boston Mass and in the Autum of 1861 he settled to Woodbrook (Rafferty Road) Lot 11 on Prince Edward Island Canada. He married Mary Ann Bulger and had 4 children 1. Mary Ann (1856) married William B Kilbride 2. Margaret (1859) married James B Kilbride 3. Ellen (1861) married Augustine Kilbride 4. Hugh J (1863) married Margaret Laughlin. Mary Ann's parents were John Bulger Sr. County Queen's and mother was Margaret Pickett. Mary Ann had passed away in the mid 1860's and James re-married Ellen Laughlin (1822 - 1909)They had no children. I believe that James had a brother Hugh Rafferty who was a soldier in the British Army. Any info you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you In memory of my dear mother Elaine Elizabeth Rafferty McNally
