[1] John OLIVER of Tullymore in the County of Armagh  Gent

[2] Catherine OLIVER née WHITESIDE wife of John OLIVER of Tullymore, County of Armagh  Gent

[3] Revd James WHITESIDE of Drumflugh, Parish of Clonfeagle, Co. of Tyrone. I am guessing that he is the father of Catherine WHITESIDE who married John OLIVER of Tullymore some time before 1803 and also mentioned in 1800 May 5 DEED: 523-426-346117.

[4] Joshua McGEOGH of Drumshill in the County of Armagh AKA Drumsill, Parish of Grange, CO. Armagh. NOTE: A William McGEOGH WITNESSED A Ballinahonebeg deed 360-85-241557 Feb 10, 1784. Also, in 1739, May 17 DEED 93-514-661, a Josua McGEOGH of Drumsill witnessed  a HAMILTON-GILLMER deed. CHECK deed 704-529-482264 McGEOGH-NIMMO re: Tullymore.

[5] John OLIVER of Tullycarrent in the County of Armagh father. If Tullycarrent is indeed the same townland otherwise known as Tullysarren, then this John OLIVER is most likely to be connected to the OLIVERs of Mullinture & Tullysarrenmentioned in leases throughout much of the 1700s. I am also of the persuasion that he may also have been known as being of Tullymore.

[6] Tullycarrent Since there is no such townland currently with this name in Co. Armagh, I am going to take a leap here and suggest this is likely Tullysarren (until proven otherwise), Parish of Eglish – the townland that abuts Mullintur. (SEE footnote for John OLIVER of Tullycarrent) What is curious though is that the townland index at the Deeds registry included “Tullycarrent” in the list of townlands associated with the 1804 August 31 DEED: 567-358-381199 between Joseph OLIVER - James HAMILTON and concerning the marriage of Joseph OLIVER & Jane HAMILTON – but the name does not show up in the actual deed (I have a copy).

[7] Jas WHITESIDE jr of Drumflugh in the Co of Tyrone Gent. He is most likely a son of Re. James WHITESIDE
