The 1 November 1791 lease renewal for the property in Kinnego names sons their sons Thomas and Robert. Moses and Catherine were early Methodists and records show that Moses opened his home to meetings, before the first Methodist church in Lurgan was built. Much of the family remained Methodist for a number of generations, their 2nd born son, Rev. William Douglas, was an itinerant Methodist Minister.
