Parker Family in Canada

Surnames: Parker, Farris
I'm searching for any information on my relatives Alexander and Penelope Parker. I'm not 100% sure of their first names or spelling.

Alexander Parker was born about 1820 in Scotland.

Penelope (Unknown Surname) was born about 1831 in Ireland.

They immigrated to Canada sometime before 1858. I'm not sure whether they were married at the time of immigration or not. I once found a personal story on that said they lived in Quebec, but I can no longer find it.

Their six Canadian-born children are
Ramsey, 1858;
Richard, 1859;
Anna/Ann/Annie, 1860;
Margaret/Maggie, 1862;
Thomas, 1864; and
Maryland/Mary, 1867.

Sometime between 1866 and 1870, Alexander, Penelope, and their family immigrated to Buchanan County, Missouri. Anna was married to John Farris in Saint Joseph, MO.

Their two American-born children are
Jennet/Jenetta/Jenn, 1870, and
Joseph, 1873.

I've found very little information from censuses and need some help finding my Scottish/Irish/Canadian family. Any information or tips on locating information would be appreciated. I'm not a very experienced genealogist.
