Richard and Judith Babington, Magheracloone, Co. Monaghan to Co. Antrim, Ireland

  of 184

In reviewing the parish register of the Magheracloone Church of Ireland (Anglican)parish, Co. Monaghan, Ireland in 2005 at PRONI in Belfast, Northern Ireland I found baptisms of five children of Richard and Judith Babington from 1836 till 1845. The records were very hard to read but listed the following children of Richard and Judith Babington being baptized:
1836 - Rebecca (died before 1838?)
1838 - Rebecca II
1840 - John
1842 - Samuel (birth date 27 Feb 1842?)
1845 - Richard (birth date 24 Aug 1845, bap date 31 Aug 1845)
After 1845 there is no mention of either Richard or Judith Babington in the Magheracloone parish register.
I have recently been in email with someone who appears to be descended from Rebecca II Babington above. Rebecca Babington appears to have married a William Hood in 1860 in Co. Antrim, Ireland. The Irish Civil Register index shows this Rebecca Hood's death in the Apr-Jun 1913 period in the Dungannon Registration District in Co. Tyrone, age 75 (her age does match the baptism year noted above).
I am looking for anyone who might have information on Richard and Judith Babington. It appears that they left Magheracloone by the late 1840's, perhaps to settle in Co. Antrim?
