Just located a clue for you. My great-grandfather William O. Smith Durnin wrote an autobiography and stated:

"My mother Rebecca Smith, emigrated at the age of 10 years with her family from Down County, Ireland. This family consisted of 5 sons and 3 daughters. The sons were James, William, John, Robert and George. The daughters were Eliza married to Gordon Young, Mary Jane married Edward Durnin, and Rebecca, married my father, Charles Durnin. Also adopted son Thomas."

It's possible that my g-grandfather was a bit confused as in this portion he was speaking of the Smith family. But as Thomas was adopted, this is probably why you're having so much trouble.
