Dunlop's from County Down

I have been searching for many years with little luck. My Grandfather Thomas Henry Dunlop born 1900 in Killyleagh came to the USA in 1904 with his parents Thomas Henry Sr. and Agnes {Montgomery} Little is knowen about Agnes born about 1870 mother Anne no father has been listed, she did have a brother Thomas who was born 1872. Thomas Henry Sr is found in the 1901 census for Killyleagh with his father Samuel, I have found that Samuel Dunlop died 1902 his wife Mary Ann Blakely died before him, her father was John Blakely, these families were always in the area of Killyleagh, Crossgar, Shrigley and Ballynahinch. I have been able to find that Samuel and Mary Anne Dunlop had other children besides my G Grandfather Thomas Sr. they also had Alexander who also came to the USA, George Robinson, Ellen, Catherine, one of these daughters married a McCartney, another daughter first name unkown married a Watson. I have been in touch with an elderly man from Shrigley who is a direct decendent of the daughter who married a Watson, he remembers the family and told me that my G Grandfather lived on river row and worked in the mill, he even sent me a picture of him with a group of workers, unfortunatly I was unable to learn much else. Any information on these families would be great.
