English lady searching ancestry wishing to visit draperstown

I'm looking for the Hepburn family who owned a farm I think in Draperstown, certainly had a farm anyway. My grandmothers name was Mary Jane Hepburn and her mother died very young about 1903 my great grandmothers maiden name I think was Moore. That's all the information except to say she came to the UK and never came back to Ireland and I don't know why. My mother is dead now and I would love to visit Draperstown and see the family too.

Hi, I'm from Draperstown. If it's any help to you there are still some Hepburn's living in Draperstown. It's quite an unusual name for that area, so I think it's quite possible they could be related to you. I dont know them personally but I know there's a family called Hepburn who leave on the 'Sandy Lane' - a lane between Cahore Road and Drumard Road, which is a farming area.

Hope this is some help!

My name is Fredeick Hepburn, the English lady I believe is the Daughter of either my cousin Ann Davies who married Dave Brench or my cousin Richard Davies. I live in the North East of England and my father David Hepburn is the brother of Mary Jane Hepburn.
