[2] Kennedys, a townland in the Parish of Lisnadill and now incorporated into the town of Milford is a townland of about 203 acres. Interestingly in the Freeholder records at PRONI, the only names listed for the Kennedies are Gray, Gillespie, Johnston, Levinstone  and Livingstone – not OLIVER.

[3] John Oliver John OLIVER (1764-bet 1796-1798). His birth date is based on the fact that his parents married in 1794. He had two sisters, Mary & Elizabeth who were “of the Kennedies”. Son of Joseph OLIVER (1727-1798).

[4] Thomas Prentice He shows up as a witness: http://www.thesilverbowl.com/documents/1796Apr1-OLIVER-SCOTT.html The PRENTICE family and the OLIVER family often seem intertwined in their business dealings.
