[1] Andrew OLIVER of Newtownhamilton, a distiller and brother of William OLIVER (of Mullinture who died a bachelor abt 1779), Mary who married DOBBIN & John of Tullymore. Wife, Elinor – many children.

[2] William OLIVER of Tullysarren, Co. Armagh, Gent. I am working on hunches here, but I think it quite possible that he is the son of John OLIVER (d. 1772) of Tullymore -  a brother of the Andrew OLIVER of Newtownhamilton. This is only a possible placement based on a mention as a nephew of William OLIVER alongside the reference to John OLIVER (a possible brother) in Deed# 580-365-398643
