bell jackson,foster

my ancestors came from county cavan..killashandra ...originally from scotland, the bells are in county cavan around 1740's...george bell born bruce hall in 1750's, next came william bell, and then thomas bell born 1817 and comes to america around 1835. his wife, sarah jackson, also born 1817 ( father james jackson and jane foster from scotland) in county cavan comes to u.s. in 1836. they marry in U.S. 1839. ann jackson, sarah's sister marries william foster and they and their children arrive in U.S. in 1840's during the famine...looking for ancestral home of jackson and bell in ireland and where the bell and jackson family came from in scotland. also a mr. Booth bell was a magistrate in county cavan, owned about 250 acres and was killed during a period referred to as the agarian murders...any info on this would be greatly appreciated
