[2] Balls Mill is just south of the R177, about 7km north-west of Dundalk. It is also just slightly north of a clutch of townlands where many of the COULTERs were known to reside (Cavananore, Shortstone, Annaghavackey and so on). It is on Ballsmill Road (on some maps – otherwise Glassdrumman Rd on other maps) and is in the Parish of Glassdrumman  SEE: http://www.devlin-family.com/timelineglassdrummond.htm  William HILL is in the 1828 Tithe records.

·        Ballsmill (Baile na gCléireach) Armagh. Ballinaglera 1838. ‘Ball's mill’. Thomas Ball was granted land here in the 17th cent. The Irish name means ‘townland of the clerics’. SOURCE: http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1O40-Ballsmill.html

[3] Esther HILL (? -after 1875) otherwise COULTER of Balls Mill aforesaid the wife of the said William HILL Going from Ireland, Civil Registration Indexes 1845-1958, it is possible that she was born 1825 and died age 58 in 1883. If this is her, then she was born too late to be the Esther COULTER, daughter of John COULTER and Jane BARTLEY.
