Robert Stroud (England) & wife Dorothea(Pennsylvania)

This couple are my gggrandparents Robert(1800 - 1877) Dorothea (1808 - 1864). He was listed as a farmer in the 1852 Canada West Census. They had six children listed one of whom was my ggrandmother Elizabeth(1841 - 1912). Elizabeth was married to Willaim Brown Martyn(1840 - 1922).
Robert and Dorothea's eldest daughter, Catherine(Oct 1, 1835 - Oct 1, 1890), is listed as having been born in the U.S. We believe that Dorothea came from the Pennsylvania area and perhaps that is where their eldest daughter was born. The other children are listed as being Canadian born.
There is a letter with a return address from Warren Stroud at 200 N 3rd Street, Jeannette, Pennsylvania 15644 dated 1976. Apparently, he was a first cousin to my grandfather,Thomas Victor Martyn, which means he was a son to a son James(1830), Francis(1833) or Joseph(1844). There was also a daughter Sarah(1844).
I would appreciate any information someone may have to enlighten me on this family. Thanks.
