This might be a red herring but I have connections with the Johnston family, who I believe were originally from Tyrone, but later had connections with Monaghan. (There was a family story about a relative who settled in Monaghan and made good) I don't know if this fits in terms of dates:
James Johnston, farmer, was the father of William Johnston, who was also a farmer at Creevelough, Tyrone. William was born around 1819. Is he the brother of your Georgina? He married Mary Warwick in the 1840s and had four children, Samuel Johnston, Maria Johnston, John Johnston, and James Johnston. James and Maria lived together in Belfast before they died in 1923 and 1933 respectively.
I cannot find David's baptism, so am rather stuck. There are at least 2 sets of possible parents:
1. John (a land stewart) & Martha Johnston of Caledon, with children:
2. John Johnston and Mary Jane (nee Miller) of Reskateriff, with children:
Susan b. 9/4/1846
Thomas b. 5/2/1858
At Brantry school there was a John Johnston (son of a gamekeeper) started 1877 at age 14 1/4
and a Joseph Johnston (son of a farmer) started 1877 at age 19 (don't know if this was an error). Both lived in Crievelough.
I don't know if any of this rings a bell with anyone?
