The Killynure entries all tie into the JACKSON's line of OLIVERs and have been entered into the family tree. They are all we can find in some instances as a result of the wills being destroyed in the fire in Dublin in 1922.

OLIVER, Margaret

Drumenny, Co. Tyrone

Widow. Proved at Armagh by Andrew M’CARTNEY of Drumenny & Abraham HARKNESS of Drumconvis, both executors of Co. Tyrone, farmers. Effects ₤5.1 shilling

It may be that the spelling of "Drumconvis" is wrong -- perhaps it should be Drumconan or Drumcorran/Drumcorrin/Drumcorn -- strictly across the co. border into Glendermott, co Londonderry -- and next to Killymallaght. Thanks to Dave

Mitchell for the suggestion.

1892 Jan 24


Killynure, CO. Armagh

Wife of William OLIVER; granted 23/02/1892 to Mary Anne MULLEN of Killynure, spinster. Effects ₤54

NOTE: Oliver snippets –  a William OLIVER had an illegitimate child (Sarah) by Anne MALLON. Is there a connection? He died 1873. At this point I am guessing this to be the Wm OLIVER b. July 27, 1828 - cousin to Eliza OLIVER.

1892 Feb 14


Urney, Co. Tyrone

Farmer. Proved @ Londonderry by John James OLIVER of Creggan, Farmer & Rev Matthew NEIL of Sion Mills Presb. Minister in said County. Effects ₤187
