My GGGGGrandfather (James Moore Irwin) married a lady named Helen Houston, from county Tyrone. She was born about 1775 and died 16 Feb 1850, and was the daughter of Francis Houston and Jane Douglas. They went on to have 10 children, and from what i've heard, they were one of the main landowners in the parish of Drumglass.
My branch of that family eventually settled in New Zealand, where we still are today.
Hope this helps a little.
: I would like to have any information on the Houstons of county Tyrone Ireland.My GGGreatgrandfather came from there before moving to South Carolina in the 1700's.Any information about this family would be appreciated.
