Agreed to by the Parties
In the presence of us ~
 Elizabeth BRADFORD née BREAKEY(1758-1844), daughter of William BREAKEY (1712-bef 1760) and Elizabeth BIRCH (1733-1812). Her husband Thomas BRADFORD (abt 1739-1790) was a son of John BRADFORD (1705-1789) and Barbara COULTER (1721-1795), a daughter of Samuel COULTER b 1bt 1690 of Cavananore. Her only son, Andrew Coulter BRADFORD (1788-1847) was key in the improvements to the lands and buildings of Cavananore. He was a great-uncle of Sir Thomas JACKSON.
 Samuel BRADFORD (1739-1818), husband of Margaret HENRY, and the twin brother of Thomas BRADFORD (abt 1739-1790). He was a son of John BRADFORD (1705-1789) and Barbara COULTER (1721-1795). His sons, Thomas & Samuel figure in future land agreements concerning Cavananore.
 Mrs. COULTER. Presumably, she would be a relation of Barbara COULTER (1721-1795). My guess is that this was Martha COULTER, née COWAN, the widow of John COULTER, a brother of Barbara BRADFORD née COULTER. She was living at Cavananore in 1791 when a robbery was reported, and a codicil in her will places her there.
 Robert DICKIE. This is probably Robert DICKIE (1740-1825) husband of Mary REID (1744-1827). They lived at Clonaleenan, Co. Louth
 John BAILIE. Given the inter-relationships, this is most likely John BAILIE (1730-1810) of Clonaleenan. His wife was Ann, but we do not know her maiden name.
 Capt. Eliezer Birch GILLMER (1762-1834), half brother of Elizabeth BRADFORD née BREAKEY, and son of Alexander GILMORE (1735-1773) and Elizabeth BIRCH (1733-1812).
 James BIRCH. Given the context, this is probably James Birch GILMORE (1772-1804), a brother of Capt. Eliezer Birch GILLMER (1762-1834).
