Patrick, Peter & Thomas Rafferty

I have a Patrick Rafferty in my line B. abt 1889 in Dernscobe, Armagh, Cty Tyrone. He had a brother Peter & possibly another brother or nephew named Thomas. Patrick was married to Mary McGeary abt 1898 in Clogher District (near Fivemiletown), County Tyrone. Patrick was a farmer, his mother was Mrs. E. Rafferty. Patrick & his wife Mary immigrated to Canada from Belfast in 1927 and continued on to Detroit, Michigan for a couple of years. They returned to Ireland abt 1930 where they lived out their life. They had no children so it has been difficult to make connections. I was told when they returned to Ireland it was to take over his father's farm after his father died and that they also raised a sister's child after the sister died. I don't know which side of the family the sister was on - a Rafferty sister, or a McGeary sister. Can anyone make a connection?
