[1] William WALLACE (1778-1864) d 28 Jan 1864 at Lisnafeedy. Survived by wife Mary WALLACE née IRWIN.

·       Probate at PRONI for William WALLACE. His death cert says that he was age 86 (therefore b abt 1778).

·       Given the geography, I suspect a relationship with the much earlier Rev. James WALLACE of Urney, Co. Tyrone who had a will dated 1675.

·       William WALLACE and Mary IRWIN had a daughter, Mary Anne WALLACE (abt 1819-1871). Her probate is at PRONI: The Will (with one Codicil) of Mary Anne WALLACE late of Lisnafeedy House County Armagh Spinster deceased who died 23 August 1871 at same place was proved at Armagh by the oath of Sinnamon Noble of Armagh Land Agent one of the Executors. Effects under £1,500. She had land at Lisnafeedy, Mowuillan and Iskeameady [aka Iskymeadow]. Left all to servants and friends. A death cert for a Mary on this date says she died age 52.

[2] Mary WALLACE née IRWIN (abt 1797-1870) principle devisee and niece of John McCULLOUGH.

  • There is a death cert for a Mary WALLACE age 73, a widowed farmer of Lisnafeedy who died of heart disease on July 13, 1870. Her death was attended by Sarah WILSON. I suspect this is the same Mary WALLACE.
  • It may be pertinent in terms of OLIVER-McCULLOUGH-IRWIN connections that a William IRWIN of Mount Irwin is mentioned as the father of a life (of Henry IRWIN) in a deed 1853 Apr 16.
