Can't do family stories just what is available on the
internet.

Portadown 1864 underwent the Griffith Valuation for taxes. It is now used as a census substitute:
www.askaboutireland.ie

Portadown, Armagh was a town and township and had many townlands but in just two Parish's Drumcree & Seagoe
all in the Poor Law Union of Lurgan (within 12 mi.)

The following isn't complete just a few as an example:

Robert Magee, Parish Drumcree, Townland Iavanagh, PortaDown

www.census.nationalarchives.ie has 1901/1911 census but pall parents have passed on,but siblings might be there

The british telephone book has:

10 Magee's in Armagh, 3 in Dungannon
1 Grayson, Dungannon, Armagh
3 Ruddy, Dungannon

This phone book has complete addresses with postal codes.
Might be worth writing as you might find someone to help you point you in the right direction or spark an interest.
Helpful for locating gravestone inscriptions for family history.

There are cemetaries listed on these:
www.interment.net
www.ancestorsatrest.com
www.from-ireland.net free inscriptions and photos

Other resources:

www.igp-web.com + Armagh
www.censusfinder.com United Kingdom+Ireland+Armagh
both these have varied resources not necessarily census
