Cattle belonging to the late John Jackson valued by us 20th August 1817
An Acct of the Value of the personal property of John Jackson late of Urker in the County of Armagh.
[NOTE: There is no total included on these pages, but my addition shows the total value to be: £994:19:6. Using a calculator at Measuring Worth and the date of 1830 (the furthest back I could go, the value using the retail price index would be £66,570.] The site points out that it is also not that simple:
 John JACKSON died June 20, 1817 at the age of 37. He left three daughters and one son. His son David, who would become the father of Sir Thomas JACKSON, was three years old at the time. It is curious that the Baptismal registry at Creggan Church shows one daughter, Elizabeth Johanna JACKSON, being baptised on June 20, 1817 - the day of her father’s death. His wife was Elizabeth McCULLAGH.
 Urker, Parish of Creggan, Co. Armagh was the home of the JACKSONs and related family until well into the 1970s.
 Tullygallaghan. This is a townland that I first encountered in the will of David JACKSON, father of John JACKSON. SEE: http://www.user.dccnet.com/s.brown/documents/1796_Will_DavidJACKSON.html I wonder if it might be the townland of Tullyogallaghan, Parish of Newtownhamilton, Co. Armagh.
 Andrew DONALDSON. SEE also 1817 June 9th Andrew Donaldson lease The most likely contender out of my known DONALDSONs is the son of Samuel DONALDSON (1753-1827) and Alice [last name unknown]. Of course, he may not even be a DONALDSON who is known to me.
 Graham JOHNSTON. Probably related to the Richard JOHNSTON (who married Anne JACKSON – an aunt of John JACKSON - in 1767). IN LOVING MEMORY OF Graham Johnston, Esq., of Dundalk, Died Aug. 8, 1873, aged 87 His Wife, Anne, Daughter of Robert Macan, Esq., Cariff, Co. Armagh, Died Oct. 9, 1852, Aged 68. And Their Children, Anna Margaret, Died Ap. 25, 1825, Age 10 Thomas William, Died at Lahore, June 13, 1846, Aged 33: Robert Macan, Died Oct. 2, 1856, Aged 36. Charlotte Dorcas, - Nov. 18, 187x - 54. Richard Keating, - Feb. 28, 1873 - 54. Louisa Frances, - Nov. 26, 18xx - 68 This Tablet is Erected by his two surviving Daughters over the place occupied by him and his family in this Church for nearly 80years. 1881. [White marble tablet inside the church.] SOURCE: St Nicholas Church, Dundalk His brother John JOHNSTON was at Urcher (see George Edward NOBLE notes ) See also Johnstons of Woodvale.
 EASTWOOD. NOTE: Many of the EASTWOOD family were buried in Creggan Church – but I don’t know which one this might be,
 Samuel BRADFORD. This is most likely: Samuel BRADFORD (1739-1818) of Cavananore; husband of Margaret Henry or their son, Samuel BRADFORD who died after 1876. Interesting (given the BIRCH family interest in Cavananore) that there is also a Samuel BRADFORD in Banbridge in 1766. This legacy was most likely due for the care of Joseph COULTER, son of John & Martha COULTER. This son, Joseph, had been described in Martha’s will as a man who has been for some years by the Will of Almighty God deprived of his natural Reason and is now in such a State as not to be able to Manage his Own Affairs. He had already most likely died, but the legacy may have been still outstanding.
 James McCULLAGH (?-1865) of Ednafirkin & Thomas McCULLAGH (abt 1786-1849) of Derryvalley were both brothers of Elizabeth McCULLAGH
 Sally McCARTER of Shantanagh was the wife of James McCULLAGH and the mother of Elizabeth McCULLAGH(1788-1880), Thomas McCULLAGH (d. abt 1850) & James McCULLAGH. Elizabeth McCULLAGH was the widow of John JACKSON.
