Could this be the Brimstone family of Kesh?

We have 3 Brimstin brothers and a sister from Kesh (Hugh, Alexander,
and Elizabeth) who opened a general store in Gravenhurst in Ontario. The
name Brimstin does not appear to have been spelt this way in Ireland.
are a few other Brimstins scattered around North America. The
Brimstins are from this line. The only other connection we know of is to
cousins named Gibson in Kesh. The young men became cutlers and each opened
his own store on Yonge St in Toronto.
We assume from the age and birthplaces of their children (from 1881
that they emigrated in the 50's.
Anyone else got connections to Kesh? We have a funeral notice with a long
list of names.
