 George Killen CAMPBELL (-1864) of Portnaghy Co. Monaghan. He was most likely a son of Mary CAMPBELL. Why was he the trustee for Benjamin OLIVER?
 Benjamin OLIVER Late of Lislooney in the County of Armagh gent deceased. He died abt 1850 (will probated for a Benjamin OLIVER of Lishiny, Co. Armagh). I suspect that Lishiny is Lislooney. This Benjamin OLIVER was the son of Benjamin OLIVER (1717-1770) of Lislooney, and was also the brother of Arthur OLIVER. His grandparents were William OLIVER and Elizabeth HARDY. He was also the Benjamin OLIVER of Lislooney, father of Isabella OLIVER who died after a rapid decline” at age fourteen on April 9, 1816 (therefore b. Abt 1802 – his youngest daughter). SOURCE: Belfast Newsletter 1816, April 16. There was also a William OLIVER of Lislooney in 1718 and there is likely a connection here as well. SOURCE: Deed: 38-403-24787.
OLIVER (abt 1800-aft 1853), a son of Benjamin OLIVER of Lislooney married Letitia SIMPSON on June
17 1830. SOURCE:
 Letitia OLIVER (abt 1805-aft 1853) née SIMPSON, daughter of William SIMPSON.
 Benjamin Robert OLIVER, eldest son of James OLIVER of Lislooney and Letitia SIMPSON. As a minor in 1852, he would have been born between 1832 and 1851.
 James WAUGH of Cavanacagh (AKA Cavanacaw, Parish of Lisnadill, Co. Armagh). This townland is one townland east of Farmacaffley. Why was he a trustee? This is likely pertinent.
 Leonard DOBBIN (1789-1881) -of Gardiners Place, Dublin Esq. NOTE: He was a lawyer, and related to the OLIVERs of Ballynahonebeg. He was a son of Thomas DOBBIN & Rhoda BROWN. He was the brother-in-law of Henry Leslie PRENTICE.
 Arthur OLIVER (abt. 1744- abt. 1798)
· SEE: 1738 February 6 Arthur and Benjamin OLIVER shared: all that part or parcel of land in the townland of Lissluny in the Estate of Woodpark and Manor of Caledon then in the possession of the said Arthur OLIVER and Benjamin OLIVER together with one acre of Turf Moss then in their possession in the Moss of Cavanapole
· SEE: 1770 April 26 he was a witness to a deed involving David OLIVER. It involved 100 acres on the west side of the townland of Laragh, Co. Monaghan as well as some water rights.
· SEE: 1770 July 30 David OLIVER of Ballyrea, Co. Armagh sold his lease rights for Lands of Laragh & Carnacaraff. - both in Co. Monaghan - as well as the Mill at Creevey (also Monaghan) with 8 acres of land and lands in Ballymogonan in Co. "Dorone" to Arthur OLIVER of Balinahone Beg, Co. Armagh. NOTE: Ballymogonan in Co. "Dorone" is probably Ballymagowan, Parish of Clogher, Co. Tyrone.
· SEE: 1782 Sept 7 Robert JACKSON was paid £850 by Arthur OLIVER & Sarah SEAVER & set over to Arthur OLIVER & Sarah SEAVER all the lands of Ballynahonebegg in Parish of Armagh possessed by Thomas VERNER. Thomas VERNER was the executor of the deceased Benjamin OLIVER – who I believe was the Benjamin OLIVER (1717-1770), father of Arthur & Benjamin. NOTE: I am curious about whether there may have been a marriage relationship between the OLIVERs and SEAVERS.
· SEE: 1784 Feb 10 [refers to] Deed of partition made between Sarah SEAVER & Arthur OLIVER 15 Nov 1783 that Sarah SEAVER (executor etc) would have ½ of all rents and fines issuing out of the part of said premises held by Thomas VERNER Esq. And also ½ rents and fines of part in possession of Arthur OLIVER called the bleach green and half of her late husband’s legacy
· SEE: 1789 April 15 – he was a farmer at Ballinahonebeg. Robert WILSON the younger in consideration of £5 sterling to be paid by Arthur OLIVER did sell transfer and make over unto the said Arthur OLIVER his exec ... all the liberty of Beetling, Washing & rubbing cloth at said mill of Ballinahonebeg which his father Robert WILSON the elder hd resd to hold to the said Arthur OLIVER.
· SEE: 1793 February 13 He held a lease to Ballinahonebeg jointly with Sarah SEAVER.
· SEE: 1853 April 16. This will recites the abovementioned lease of 1788 Feb 6NOTE:, a Robert Oliver who was a son of another Arthur OLIVER (of Drumkirwan, Clogher, Co. Tyrone - and who lived a generation after this Arthur OLIVER) married Eliza MULLEN of Cavan Moutray - on 9th Dec 1858. Since Arthur is not a common OLIVER name, this record may be important to keep in sight (Thanks to Jack Storey for this).
 John BURNS? It is possible that he was a relative of Bryan BURNS of Laragh mentioned in the 1770 Nov 21 DEED: 283-214-183826.
