Thanks again KG for your great help!
To recap - my James MOORE (2) born 1828 to James MOORE & Mary COULTER (born about 1800).
James (2) living in Drumrawn (Longfield East) when marries Jane GIVINS in 1852.

James (2) in Sydney Australia 1856 said both his parents were dead - hence not in Griffiths.

Sister ? - Mary MOORE born 1829 marries Thomas McGahey 1849 (living there) in Dromore. They move to Glasgow (7 children). After Thomas dies she married (Neil McDonald) 13 Feb 1882 Govan Glasgow -  naming James MOORE & Mary COULTER as her parents.

My DNA match is with William MOORE (daughter Sarah b 1893) in Bomackatall Upper, Longfield West. Father Thomas MOORE.
LOTS of MOORE families there & surrounding townlands (Ednashaulaght, Meencarcagh, Kirlish, Kilmore)   Prominent names - Andrew, Samuel, Robert - 'not particularly in Longfield East'.
Name 'James' not prominent -(sweeping statements I know - but an observation).
Both parishes have 'the usual' William, John, Mary, Eliza, etc.

Earlier records -
Tithe Applotment - James MOORE in Drumrawn 1829 & 1837
No MOOREs in Dromore, Drumragh, Clonfeacle, Aghaloo

1796 Flax Index - James MOORE in Agahloo, Ardstraw, Clogher, Clonfeacle, Donacavey

1782 Probate (PRONI) James MOORE from Drumarm (could this be Drumrawn later)?
Thomas MOORE in Urney

The search and linking names continues .................... thanks Barbara

I don't know if this will be of any use?
I compiled a tree for an uncle of mine (not a blood uncle, he married a sister of my mum).

His great-grandfather, Joseph Knox, born about 1835, probably in the Drumquin area. (he died here in Scotland in 1908). Joseph married 3 times. The first time, to Ann McCrae at Langfield in 1856. She died at Barravey, Drumquin in 1873.
Joseph went on to marry Mary Ginn at Lower Langfield Presbyterian church in 1874 and she died 1890 in Wishaw, Scotland.
Joseph, glutton for punishment, married for the 3rd time at Glasgow, Scotland to Elizabeth Moore, they were married in 1899, she was the widow of Robert Campbell.
Elizabeth died in Wishaw, Scotland 17th February 1913 and is interred in common ground in Cambusnethan cemetery, Wishaw.
Her father's name was Robert Moore, I'm not too sure but I think her mother's name was Rebecca. I will have to look through some paperwork.
Ancestry threw up this link to the 1851 census but I doubt very much if it Elizabeth's family, have a look and see what you think, it may be useful at a later date.

Just checked, Elizabeth's parents were Andrew Moore, farm servant and Rebecca Simpson. Both were deceased by February 1909 when Elizabeth made a poor relief application as being the widow of Joseph Knox and states she went through a "form of marriage" with him 16 years previously. However, according to my records they were legally married by Declaration in front of the Sheriff Substitute on 29th April 1899 at Glasgow. (This was a sort of pre-registry office type of marriage in Scotland).

She also states in her poor relief claim that she is living with someone named John Knox and has had one child by him. She went on to have another later that year.
Her former husband, Robert Campbell, born Co Tyrone, died, she states, "in America" 10 years prior. She had 2 sons by him, both still living in Co Tyrone. (James born about 1869 and Alexander born about 1874).
Elizabeth must have been born around 1850 - 55.

Just come across this thread, Barbara. My grandfather was Samuel Moore of Ednashanlaght, who married Mary Murphy of Archill. Am having problems tracing connections with other Moores in the area, as there are quite a few. Am pretty sure that Samuel is a brother of John Moore of Ednashanlaght, though without birth evidence. Samuel's father was William Moore. One William Moore appears in Tithe Applotments 1829 for Caroney (=Carony). This is basically Drumquin. Also appears (if the same person in the neighbouring townland of Drumnaforbe, along with William Nethery. Is he a relative of yours?
