I am putting both versions under links to both dates until I can sort out my error.

NOTE: In 1742, an Ann OLIVER married a Luke HIGGINS. SOURCE: National Archives Marriage Index.

 



[1] Joseph OLIVER of Kennedies in Co Armagh Gent. This Joseph OLIVER was probably a son of William OLIVER – probably of Farmacaflley and brother of David, William, Benjamin & Elizabeth OLIVER. He was born 11 Feb 1726/27 probably at Ballyrea, Co. Armagh and died Bet. 1794 - 1796 in Ballynahonebeg, Co. Armagh.  He probably married Jane OATS in 1764, the daughter of Thomas OATS. 

[2] The townland of the Kennedies is on the northeastern border of Ballynahonebeg and is part of the land now occupied by the town of Milford. The road to Monaghan runs through it. On its northern border, is the townland of Tullymore (where other OLIVERs lived). All these townlands had a significant number of OLIVER-related leases connected to them and also had connections to bleachworks and mills (which given the number of OLIVERs who were described as “drapers” is significant). I am guessing that the 97 acres would be north of the road to Monaghan.

[3] Jhn HUGGINS (AKA HIGGINS) of Glenart in the County of Tyrone Gent. Monaghan. ??? There is a marriage record which raises more questions than it answers (NOTE the original LDS transcription gave the bride’s surname as HUGHES): George age 24, bachelor, labourer, from Aghnameal(AKA Aghnmeal), father Benjamin OLIVER  a weaver  married on 11th December 1845 in the parish church of Clontibret Co Monaghan Eliza HIGGINS aged 19  from Carrikaderry. Father William HIGGINS (WIGGINS), a weaver of Carrickaderry  witnessed by Samuel McChesney & George Hodge - Rev George Lewis (Curate)  Given the date & locale, there is a possibility that the father may be the Benjamin OLIVER, son of David OLIVER of Ballyrea. Thanks to Maria BEATTIE for the original transcription of this and Jack STOREY for a few corrections of townland spellings.

[4] Glenart in the County of Tyrone. Possibly Glenarb, Parish of Aghaloo, Co. Tyrone.

[5] Enagh, Parish of Lisnadill is a townland adjacent to the Kennedies.
