Robert Smith owned a sawmill Belfast 1870's

My Gt Grandfather Robert Smith owned or ran a sawmill in the 1870's. It is said he only had one leg. I am not sure of his wife's name but could be Miss Chappel. My Grandmother was Mary Smith. 1878. Married Edward Dorrity in 1899, he was a plumber.
Any information would be appreciated.
Further search found Grandmother Mary (Smith) Dorrity's birth record, it states her mother was Harriet Rowan.
Gr Grandfather Smith I believe was born in Scotland, not sure where. Harrriet Rowan I believe was born in England.
