I have 1st Garvagh baptisms (with gaps) but can't see any of the 'missing' children for a John Kennedy, Mayoughill but as well as the gaps it's not uncommon to find all children in a family unrecorded in a baptismal register even at a later period.
Will have to look through some old files to see where I might have gotten an estimate of Catherine's year of birth.

Aghadowey,
                  I am slightly off track on this thread but I have a Samuel Torrens of Culnamen who married Sarah Morrison in Ringsend in 1871. The Torrens website states that Sarah Morrison was from Drumsurn but does not give a source for this info. I wondered if your notes make any mention of this.

Should also add the following in case it's the Morrison connection you are interested in-
Sarah (Morrison) Torrens m.2 (26 Oct.1882 Moneydig Presbyterian Church) Isaac Stewart and had other children.

Aghadowey,
                  Thanks again. Yes, it is the Stewart connection which I am chasing. The names used in the Bann valley are remarkably similar to those used in the Roe valley and include the more unusual ones such Rosanna, Isaac, Oliver and Irwin. I have been trying to find a connection for some years now.

This will either help you or make things more confusing...

Josiah Stewart.
1. Joseph Stewart (born c1835).
2. Isaac Stewart (c1835-1919- date on gravestone is incorrect), Culnaman, m. Sarah (Morrison) Stewart and had a son Isaac Irwin Stewart (1883).
3. Oliver Stewart (c1846), Liscall, also had a son Isaac Irwin Stewart (1889-1898).

Aghadowey,
                   You are spot on. These are some of the people I have come across. The difficulty I have is finding a connection to similarly named people in the Roe Valley!!
