 :) Well it happens,... I screwed up a maiden surname twice earlier in the thread. ! A good tip with posts such as these, is not to use words such as he, she, they,... rather than someone's name,... those words can so often and so easily cause so much ambiguous confusion.    Congratulations on using the f word on here in a non inflammatory way !,... I think that must be an almost unimaginable achievement.  ::)

I appreciate all the replies. Not sure I'm anywhere closer than I was, but at least I have a few leads to follow.

Have you done a dna test at all?  I have just got my results if you would like to compare. I have found a few connections to my Boomer family.

Regarding the Boomers, does the forename Rainey (or alternative spellings like Reney or Rene) ring a bell?  Rainey Boomer is a name that crops up in the Lisburn-Belfast area throughout the 19th C. 

The reason I mention it is that there was a couple called Rainey Boomer and Catherine Miller who had a daughter Jane Boomer baptised in 1811, he was part of a wider Boomer family (with old french connections) living in the Lisburn / Derriaghy / Blaris area (about 5-8 miles SW of the centre of Belfast) but some also living in Belfast itself, I suppose it could be possible that Jane was an early child and Margaret Ellen was a late child.  But it might be just a coincidence of surnames, so just to note until anything else emerges to rule it in or out - there's information available online about the Lisburn Boomers.
