In this family tree, I am absolutely indebted to the research done by Harry Nicholson in his History of the OLIVER family, Lismullydown and Stragrane, Co. Tyrone. As well as the work of Maria Beattie.

NOTE: In this version of this tree, no living members have been included. Wherever there is someone for whom I do not have a death records, and whose birth is after 1911, I have recorded them as Possibly living. They may not be. I expect that readers will update me if they know more. Also, I have only annotated the first and second generation, because I am unable to find the time to do all of it right now. Hopefully, I will be able to do it soon.
