Hello Listers,
Whilst browsing through the Londonderry newspapers I found the following 
personal announcement with a U.S. connection:

April 5 1875 (Londonderry Journal)
[Death] March 14, suddenly of typhoid fever, at Hanover, Missouri, United 
States, JOHN PERCIVAL, son of the late Dr. MOTHERELL, Castlederg, county 
Tyrone, aged 25 years

and decided to search for any further references to this family and it was 
possible to locate the following:

September 4 1857 (Londonderry Sentinel)
[Death] On the 29th August, at Holme Cottage, Castlederg, ROBERT, second son of 
JOHN MOTHERELL, Esq., M.D., aged 12 years

April 28 1865 (Londonderry Sentinel)
We are happy to observe that Mr. WILLIAM W. SMYTH, fifth son of the late JOHN 
SMYTH, Esq., Dartons, Castlederg, and brother to A. W. SMYTH, Esq., surgeon to 
the Charity Hospital, New Orleans, La., having been publicly and solemnly 
examined on four several days, obtained the diplomas of the Royal College of 
Physicians and Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. He began his professional 
studies under JOHN MOTHERELL, Esq., M.D., Castlederg

March 18 1873 (Londonderry Sentinel)
[Death] March 15, suddenly, of typhus fever, at his residence, Holme Cottage, 
Castlederg, JOHN MOTHERELL, Esq., M.D., in his 63rd year

January 6 1877 (Londonderry Sentinel)
[Married] January 2, at Duncairn Presbyterian Church, Belfast, by the Rev. Wm. 
Patterson, Bangor [Co. Down], THOMAS DUNCAN, Esq., M.D., Fintona, to MARY 
ELIZABETH, only daughter of the late JOHN MOTHERELL, Esq., M.D., Castlederg

I’m hoping that this information may be useful to a researcher.
