[1] Rev. John OLIVER late of Derryroosk, Co. Monaghan but now of Belfast, Co. Antrim Methodist Minister. This is Rev. John OLIVER (1821-1913), the son of Isaiah OLIVER & Isabella BARRETT and brother of Jane, Eliza, Margaret, Mary Jane, Thomas, Turner Barrett, Hugh McClelland and Isabella OLIVER. He is elsewhere described as a Wesleyan Minister. He married Elizabeth Hanna MATTHEWS of Portadown, Co. Armagh.

This is Hugh McClelland OLIVER (1828- aft 1900) the son of Isaiah OLIVER & Isabella BARRETT and brother of Jane, Eliza, Margaret, Mary Jane, Thomas, Turner Barrett, John and Isabella OLIVER. Another Hugh OLIVER who resided at Crieve and had freeholds at Crieve and Derryellary (for a life) was recorded in the Imperial Record May 21, 1829.
