Metcalf, Medcalf, Mitcaff family history.

From my research I have found that Samuel Medcalf (Metcalf) born circa 1812 (date of death 01 Nov 1874) married Jane ? born circa 1821 (date of death 26 Jan 1880) and they had the following children:-

Ellen              13 Dec 1841              Derrycarn       married Thomas Vennard
Ann              18 Apr 1843              Cloncore       married John Cole
Anthony       14 Nov 1845               Cloncore
Mary Jane       09 Mar 1848              Cloncore       married William Cole
John              27 Apr 1850              Cloncore       married Sarah Jane Brown
James              25 Oct 1854              Cloncore
William       26 Feb 1857               Cloncore
Joseph              21 Jan 1859              Cloncore
Elizabeth       09 Jan 1861              Cloncore

At the same time Anthony Metcalf of Segoe & Sarah (Simonton) of Derrylard, James Metcalf of Cloncore & Mary (Forbes) of Ballinary, Robert Midkiff a weaver & Margaret Smyth of Derrykeevan were all married within a similar time frame and their children were born at Cloncore, Derrykeevan and Ballynary. I am trying to establish their relationship as I believe they may be related.

Where did Samuel originate from and what was Jane’s maiden name?
Did any of Samuel and Jane’s children emigrate and if so where to?

Samuel and Jane’s son John lived at Ballinary with his wife Sarah Jane Brown and they had the following children:- Jane Anne, Wilson, Lizzie, Ellen, Joseph, Mary, Margaret M and Gilbert.

Samuel and Jane’s daughter Elizabeth was my great grandmother and she had the following children:-

Ellen Jane               16 Apr 1887       Derrinraw ( married into the Ramsey family)
Lizzie                     25 Feb 1890       Cloncore
Thomas George       18 Aug 1891        Cloncore
Joseph                     28 Oct 1894       Derrinraw ( never married ?, died 1953?)
Mary                     01 Nov 1897       Derrinraw (married into the McDonald family)
Annie Elizabeth       28 July 1901       Ballynary (married into the Stoddard family)

I would like to know what happened to Lizzie and Thomas George. Did Thomas George marry and did he emigrate, if so where to?
Was the father of Elizabeth’s children called Thomas George and what was his surname?

I would also like to trace photographs of any of the above family members.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
