from Records Office of Northern Ireland at Belfast
Here are some family records obtained by Harold Rosebrugh the author of "The Rosebrugh Family". in 1955, from records office of Northern Ireland at Belfast.
He claims it shows the following belonging to the same family:
Rev. Robert Roseborough, William, Rev. John, Sarah, and Rev. James Roseborough. They all emigrated to the American Colonies. Their father may have been John Rosebrough or William Rosebrough (article by Harold Rosebrugh).
