My Gr, gr. Grandfather was Robert Boag (1827-1912).He changed his name from BOAK when he came to the US in 1852. He was born in Strabane, Co Tyrone in 1827(+/-). He had an older brother, William, who stayed on the farm in Strabane. The farm was called "Peacock Bank" and stood "on high ground...overlooking a fertile valley". By 1913 William, who was still alive, had been forced to sell the farm and was living along with his wife on his unnamed son-in-law'sfarm called "Balleyfatten". I have this from a transcript of a letter written by Robert's grandson who visited William Boak in 1913. I have no other information about the family in Ireland and would appreciate any further information I could get.
