"The fourth brother, John/ married Sarah Brabson, of a creditable family, and had children by her M-hich came to age, Hans, James, and Francis, sons, and Mary and Helen, daughters — of whom more in due time. He was a prudent person, and painfull man ; lived to a good age, and died,^ much lamented and beloved of all that knew him ; was laid in a vault at the church of Mullaghbrack, in y* County of Armagh, which he had prepared for himself and family."
