 Joseph OLIVER (1764-1837) of Tullymore. He is one of the twin sons of David OLIVER (1725-1806) of Ballyrea and Susanna OLIVER née WALKER (d. 1808). There are several OLIVER deeds that bear his name – many to do with Laragh & Derryhaw..
 Benjamin OLIVER, brother of Joseph and likely resident at Ballyrea, Co. Armagh. A will was probated in 1840 for a Benjamin OLIVER of Ballyrea. I have not found a copy of this will, but if it is a fit, it means he died sometime between 1837-1840.
 William OLIVER. (1764-1844) of Laragh. He married Mary Anne - widow of Dr. Clarendon HYDE - and they had sons William & Joseph.
 Mrs. HAMILTON Probably the mother of Joseph OLIVER’s first wife Jane HAMILTON. Her husband was James HAMILTON. SOURCE: Deed settlement 1804 August 31 DEED: 567-358-381199
