Looking for burial place of Lord Bailey of Belfast

My gggreatgrandfather was Lord Bailey of Belfast married to Rebecca. Their daughter, Rebecca fell in love with her fathers coachman, Christopher Graham fled to Morrisburg, Ontario, Canada in 1838. They had 11 children, one of which was my fathers' mother, Julia Catharene Graham. Rebecca was widowed around 1850 and immigrated to Canada where she lived with a son, John Bailey. Daughter Rebecca Bailey Graham died in 1898 in Morrisburg, Ontario. She and Christopher are both buried across the St. Lawrence River in Madrid, NY. Recently found all this out from finding family on line and went to a reunion in Madrid. I have photos of both Rebecca's from the 1800's sometime but can't find anything out about Lord Bailey as he died in Belfast Ireland. They lived in a castle and family did have a picture of it on a wall in Madrid. Don't know where it is now as that was in early 1900's. Anyway, I am having a wonderful journey in searching Ireland. I have a feeling of it being my home. I would appreciate greatly any information anyone may have and I am hoping to find a living cousin in Baileys or Grahams. Blessings, Johanna aka Mamajo
