In the following the text in Red is by Bob Sinton.

All his children were born at "Greenmount".

Some of the information on this family comes for the LDS IGI where someone has had this family through temple ordanances (as the family of William Sinton and Jane Walker) showing all the children born in County Armagh. Family information says they were all born at Greenmount. Later information for the family of Thomas Sinton of Greenmount (1817-1894) is from Joyce "Joy" (Kent) Mathews, 1989
NOTE: The only other Sintons in the LDS Ireland fiche are:
Mary daughter of John Sinton and Maria Greenlee, b. 31 Aug 1865, County Armagh, Tanderagee District [see John, son of John & Elizabeth (Jeffers) Sinton, Cabra line] See also Mary Sinton
Robert married Shusanna (sic) Moffit 27 Aug 1775 Westmeath, Athlone, County Westmeath [possibly a missing son of Robert founder of the Cabra line?]
Susanna daughter of John Sinton and Eleanor, christened Mar 1823, Donaghmore, Tyrone
NOTE: From LBS book for Herbert: The earliest record of the Irish Sintons is carved in a sideboard in the house at Greenmount, belonging to "the Darby Bridge Family", Moyallon, Co. Down, and is said to read: Thomas Cynton 1680. His grandfather Benjamin Cynton 1640". {Years later Ronald was unable to locate the carving - or the sideboard.} Greenmount was inherited by Jacob Sinton, who married Sarah Mackie, from his father-in-law, William Mackie (son of John Mackie). A great-grandson of the above Jacob Sinton sent the following outline of his family. The earliest Date is of greatest interest - whether of birth, marriage or death is not indicated. [Chart (based on the carving): Benjamin Sinton - 1640; Joseph and Elinor, m. 1675; Jacob and Sarah Mackie m. 8 Jun 1730; Benjamin and Anne Mackie m. 24 Dec 1772; William m. Jane Spence; William Fredrick Sinton, m. Hannah Wiles, Dec 1864; John Thomas Sinton m. Anna Ruth Young, April 20, 1910] The last named is authority for the correctness of this outline, and he lives at Hamilton Bawn, Richhill, Co. Down... Hamiltonsbawn, Richhill, Co. Armagh (LBS's book for Herb. pg 10 and 34) Greenmont was, in 1933 owned and occupied by Mrs. Minnie (Sinton) Atkinson. Her father, Thomas Sinton was a brother of William Fredrick Sinton, he was also brother of Elizabeth Sinton who married a Walker (sic)..." "Mrs Crain was very frail and her memory was not so good as one could wish, but she told me many stories of her life in Ireland, where she was born in the old house at Greenmount. Her Uncle Thomas was the owner of the place. She described the old sideboard, or "chest" in which the date and names were carved, but could not remember just what they were.
[I put this note here for safe keeping of the dates even though they are 'tradition' only, since Ronald could not find them. JHJ]
