On church visitation lists I located three families which may be of interest.
John and Jane Johnstonhave daughter Jane
John and Eliza Johnston have daughter Jane
David and Margaret Nelsonhave son Joseph
these lists do not give the ages of the family children nor the parents.They are just listings of families of the Garvagh church who were visited in 1840.
Hope this helps,Kim
