[1] Henry COULTER

[2] Carrickastuck. There are deeds going back more than a hundred years connecting the COULTERs with this land. SEE: http://www.thesilverbowl.com/maps/Carrickistuck.html

[3] Alexander BELL "He was a much respected lawyer practising in Dublin." He was the son of Thomas BELL and Eliza CHARLETON of Killin & Philipstown, Co, Louth.

[4] Catherine TRACY. The TRACY aka TREACY family had long had an interest in this land and connections through leases with COULTERs and DICKIEs. It would not be surprising if there had been an intermarriage of the two families at some point. A James TREACY was a trustee mentioned in the 1851 deed wherein Henry COULTER of Carrickastuck pledged to take care of his brothers and sisters after the death of their father, Ralph COULTER in 1850.SEE: http://traceyclann.com/files/louth.htm  for mentions of Catherine Tracey, 26 June 1843,
