[4qd-bannvalley] Morrells/ Torrens/Jacksons/Semple.

Derek, Many thanks for the Morrell data some of which is familiar to me but 
also adds to my detail about them. I will take some time to fit my records 
with the new information. Are you aware that the Murrells appear to have 
originated in the Roe Valley (Parish of Balteagh) where there are also many 
Torrens graves ? My main concern has long been to explain why they suddenly 
appear at Desertoghill about 1790.My ancestor left Killymuck (I believe the 
one near Kilrea) about 1845, for Scotland.
     I will certainly let you know if the pieces begin to fit together ! 
Thanks again, David Morrell.
