[1] Robert WILSON the younger of Tandragee?
[2] Tandragee this is probably the one in the current Parish of Ballymore, although it could be the one in the Parish of Lisnadill.
[3] Arthur OLIVER (abt. 1744- abt. 1798)·       SEE: 1738 February 6 Arthur and Benjamin OLIVER shared: all that part or parcel of land in the townland of Lissluny in the Estate of Woodpark and Manor of Caledon then in the possession of the said Arthur OLIVER and Benjamin OLIVER together with one acre of Turf  Moss then in their possession in the Moss of Cavanapole·       SEE: 1770 April 26 he was a witness to a deed involving David OLIVER. It involved 100 acres on the west side of the townland of Laragh, Co. Monaghan as well as some water rights.·       SEE: 1770 July 30  David OLIVER of Ballyrea, Co. Armagh sold his lease rights for Lands of Laragh & Carnacaraff. - both in Co. Monaghan - as well as the Mill at Creevey (also Monaghan) with 8 acres of land and lands in Ballymogonan in Co. "Dorone" to Arthur OLIVER of Balinahone Beg, Co. Armagh. NOTE: Ballymogonan in Co. "Dorone" is probably  Ballymagowan, Parish of Clogher, Co. Tyrone.·       SEE: 1770 October 31  echoes 1770 July 30 .·       SEE: 1782 Sept 7  Robert JACKSON was paid £850 by Arthur OLIVER & Sarah SEAVER & set over to Arthur OLIVER & Sarah SEAVER all the lands of Ballynahonebegg in Parish of Armagh possessed by Thomas VERNER. Thomas VERNER was the executor of the deceased Benjamin OLIVER – who I believe was the Benjamin OLIVER (1717-1770), father of Arthur & Benjamin. NOTE: I am curious about whether there may have been a marriage relationship between the OLIVERs and SEAVERS.·       SEE: 1784 Feb 10 [refers to] Deed of partition made between Sarah SEAVER & Arthur OLIVER 15 Nov 1783 that Sarah SEAVER (executor etc) would have ½ of all rents and fines issuing out of the part of said premises held by Thomas VERNER Esq. And also ½ rents and fines of part in possession of Arthur OLIVER called the bleach green and half of her late husband’s legacy·       SEE: 1789 April 15 – he was a farmer at Ballinahonebeg. Robert WILSON the younger in consideration of £5 sterling to be paid by Arthur OLIVER did sell transfer and make over unto the said Arthur OLIVER his exec ... all the liberty of Beetling, Washing & rubbing cloth at said mill of Ballinahonebeg which his father Robert WILSON the elder hd resd to hold to the said Arthur OLIVER.·       SEE: 1793 February 13 He held a lease to Ballinahonebeg jointly with Sarah SEAVER.·       SEE: 1853 April 16. This will recites the abovementioned lease of 1788 Feb 6
[4] Ballinahonebeg, Parish of Lisnadill. There are also numerous references in rental documents relating to Arthur OLIVERs payments to SEAVERs for rent. They are held in the Armagh Country Museum as part of a collection of legal documents relating to SEAVERs.
[5] Benjamin OLIVER (bef 1717-1770). He was the father of both Arthur & Benjamin OLIVER, and the son of William OLIVER and Elizabeth HARDY. – NOTE: There is a probate for a Benjamin OLIVER of Ballinahonebeg in 1770. The 1782 Sept 7 DEED: 242429 concerning SEAVER-JACKSON and Ballinahonebeg mentions a Benjamin OLIVER deceased. This all seems to link up. It is also interesting that this is the same year that David OLIVER made his forays in leases at Laragh. Perhaps a family death released some money? Perhaps the landsof Ballynahonebeg and of Laragh had complementary uses?
[6] Robert WILSON the elder?
[7] Joseph OLIVER of Ballinahonebeg – father of John, Mary & Elizabeth.  He died before 1796. His wife may have been Jane OATES (b. 1727 daughter of Thomas OATS [SOURCE: LDS] m. 1764 SOURCE: National Archive 2007 notes). If this is the case, then there may also be a connection to a John OATS of Armagh is on the Ardmagh Hearth Tax Rolls and LDS records show a John OATES b. 1706 in Armagh..
[8] John OLIVER of Ballinahonebeg – he may be the John OLIVER who was the son of Joseph OLIVER
[9] John McDAD?
[10] Lehnacollum AKA Latmacollum, Parish of Lisnadill, CO. Armagh. This is a little bit south-east of Ballinahonebeg – a few townlands removed.
