Rockingham - Megantic County

Classification: Query
Surnames: Rockingham
Hoping someone can help with information on David Rockingham or John Rockingham. Two brothers who emigrated to Lower Canada from Northamptonshire, England, with their families around 1830. Both died between 1832 and 1835. Living in or around Leeds Village.
John's family then left for New York. David's son Joseph (from a previous marriage) stayed in Leeds, David's wife Catherine and two children returned to Northamptonshre.
I am looking for more definite info on when David Rockingham died.
The Annals of Megantic co suggest he died of smallpox in 1832, but church records say he had a son born in 1834 and christened in Leeds village in 1835.
