Murphy/Dougall Cookstown
I'm researching my maternal grandfather's line and have recently come across the marriage of my great grandparents at the Orritor Presbyterian Church in Cookstown district. They were; Robert Murphy born c1847 son of Thomas and living at Ballynasollus and Eleanor (Ellen) Dougall born c1851 daughter of Thomas and living at Killycurragh.

They moved to County Durham in England and their first child, Martha was born there in 1871. Their second child, Thomas was born in Cookstown, Tyrone in August 1872 but their other children; Rachel 1876, Robert 1882, John 1885, William 1890 and Joseph 1893, were all born in County Durham, England. This is the earliest info I have on these lines.

As I understand it whilst some of the Murphys and the Dougles remained in Ulster others have scattered to England, Scotland, North America and Australia but I have no knowledge of details and would be grateful if anyone recognises any of the above details and could give me a lead.
