I happened to be looking yesterday at the church records for Tamlahtarde Parish Church. PRONI reference MIC/1/86/1.  If you haven't already done so they are worth a look. They contain a considerable number of baptisms for children with the surname Somers and McCorriston.

Hello,

I am an American of Irish/Sottish decent.  I belie my family "passed" through the area around Derry in the 1800s.  Here is a link to a photo and what history I have:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/cdrdwd/11124208975/

Please let me know if any dates and names match your history.

Kind regards,

Bill
