I'm looking for family links for Andrew Armour who emigrated from Co. Donegal to Australia in 1855, at age 17. So he was born about 1838. Passenger list states he was from Co. Donegal. 

In 1857 he married 14 year old Mary Jane Rogers, whose grandmother was Margery Moore (Armour) b 1786 d 1863 buried Old Clonleigh Graveyard. So Mary Jane Rogers would have been some form of cousin to Andrew Armour. Andrew Armour died in Victoria in 1863. Mary Jane Rogers' parents were Nathan Rogers and Ann Moore, married in Ballylennon Presbyterian Church 1831, Clonleigh parish Co. Donegal. They emigrated to Australia aboard the Robert Benn in 1841.

I can find no link between Margery Moore (Armour) and Andrew Armour. So children of Margery Moore (Amour) and husband James Moore circa 1820 to 1840, and parents and siblings of Andrew Armour around the same time would be extremely helpful.

Parishes for the Moore and Rogers and presumably Armour families appear to be Clonleigh, Taughboyne, and Raymoghy, and perhaps adjoining parishes.
