James Knox-County Down

I am looking for information about James KNOX b.about 1780 in County Down,Northern Ireland,d.about 1819 poss.Kilkeel. He married Ellen IRVING/IRVINE b.1782 in Mourne,d.April 9,1867 in Saint John,N.B.,Canada. He had five children,according to "First Families of New Brunswick"(New Brunswick Genealogical Society),but only two are confirmed:

(order given in the book)

1.William Knox b.1810 Kilkeel,d.October 1871 Saint John from consumption. Md.July 28,1838 Saint John Jane Eliza McLaren b.1821 Ture,Donegal,Ireland,.before 1900 d/o Robert and Elizabeth McLaren.
2.Elizabeth Jane Knox b.1819,md.John McLaren(Jane's brother).
3.James Knox(not confirmed)
4.Ellen Knox(not confirmed)
5.Charles Knox(not confirmed)

(It could be possible that these younger three,if they existed,died on the voyage to Canada.)

Although I do not know James' parents,I do know that he had a brother George b.abt.1779,d.1846 in Saint John. George married Margaret Marsden McKee who also died in 1867;their son William died in Moruya,NSW,Australia in 1881.
