[1] Robt WELSH of Tullymore Parish & Coof Armagh Miller

[2] Tullymore, Parish of Armagh, Co. Armagh was also a long time residence of various OLIVERs. SEE: Map of Tullamore & Umgola.

[3] John OLIVER of Tullymore, Parish of Armagh, Co. Armagh, Farmer. He would have been the husband of Catherine WHITESIDE. It is likely that he died in 1806. SOURCE: 1806, Feb 9, a John OLIVER of Tullymore Sturgeon was interred at St. Patrick’s Cathedral (Church of Ireland). I am guessing that this John OLIVER is the son of the John OLIVER who died in 1772 probably at Tullymore.

[4] Joshua MEGEOUGH (1747-1817) . SOURCE: Rootsweb tree by Evan. NOTE: A reference in the McGEOGH papers seems relevant. It would have been in the lifetime of the John OLIVER father of the JOhn OLIVER of this deed: SEE: PRONI D288/41. 10 January 1766.Macgeough Bond papers. Lease of lands at Tullymore Co. Armagh, (with renewal covenant) for 14 years from 1 Nov. 1765. Rent £33 18s. p.a. and duties. Joseph Johnston, Knappagh, Co. Armagh and John Oliver, Tullymore, Co. Armagh

[5] Drumcull AKA Drumcullen, Parish of Clonfeacle, Co. Armagh

[6] Tobias MAGUIRE

[7] Drumcull, parish of Clonfealle, Co of Armagh is likely Drumcullen, Parish of Clonfeacle, Co. Armagh.

[8] John OLIVER of Tullysarren, Parish & Co of Armagh. I am guessing that this is the son of James OLIVER (abt 1713-?) of Tullysarren and hence a cousin of John OLIVER of Tullymore. Tullysarren is likely now to be found in the Parish of Eglish (which used to be part of the Parish of Armagh)

[9] Even though this deed identifies Tullysaren in being in the Parish of Armagh, it is actually a townland in the Parish of Eglish, bordered on the west by Mullanture.

[10] Revd James WHITESIDE of Drumflugh, Parish of Clonfeagle, Co. of Tyrone. I am guessing that he is the brother of Catherine WHITESIDE who married John OLIVER of Tullymore some time before 1803. Another Rev. James WHITESIDE (1753-1799) of Tobermore may have been their father, and they may have had a brother Rev. John WHITESIDE of Coleraine - all Presbyterian. See footnote #4 in 1813 Jun 12 deed..

[11] Drumflugh, Parish of Clonfeacle, Co. Tyrone.
