maryderry's possible marriage seems to hit buttons
from
Tithes Applotment Books 1823-1837 based upon the index work of the
Irish Genealogy Hub. The relevant original books are in the
Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) Belfast

Ferguson, William-T: Killycurragh Y: 1826-Derryloran-Derry & Tyrone
Ferguson, William-T: Tamnahagan Y: 1827-Lissan-Derry & Lissan
Ferguson, William-Tl: Ballinagarve Yr: 1825-Artrea-Derry and Tyrone
Ferguson, William-Townland: Derrylane Year: 1827-Bovevagh-Derry
Ferguson, William-Townland: Killyiclought Year: 1827-Bovevagh-Derry
either one could be the Josephs father
Ferguson, Wm.-Townland: Bovally Year: 1826-Drumachose-Derry
Ferguson, Wm.-Townland: Coolefsan Year: 1826-Drumachose-Derry
Ferguson, Wm.-Townland: Gortnessy Year: 1834-Clondermot-Derry
there are Millars spelt Miller
Miller, John Townland: Moys Year: 1826  could be Martha Millar’s father
Miller, Joseph Townland: Moys Year: 1826
Miller, Joseph, Jr. Townland: Moys Year: 1826
Miller, Widow Townland: Moys Year: 1826
looks like Presbyterian births if recorded might be the crunch

Thank you very much for this. Hopefully I'll be able to find a record for Robert that confirms Joseph and Martha as his parents.
