One of my ancestors was a man named Hugh Montgomery who was born December 25, 1800 or 1801 in County Tyrone. However, I found several newspaper articles about him in the Belfast Newsletter, and two of those articles mentioned that he was from "Grange, Armagh". His wife was from near Markethill, County Armagh and all their nine children were born at Oona Bridge (Carrowbeg Townland, County Tyrone). So I am unfamiliar with Grange, Armagh and need some help, if possible.

Here are the two newspaper articles I am referring to.

One, a marriage announcement for one of his daughters in “The Belfast Newsletter”, published Belfast, Monday morning, February 27, 1871, under “Marriages”.

EWART-MONTGOMERY—February 22, at the First Presbyterian Church, Armagh, by the Rev. Jackson Smyth, assisted by the Rev. Mr. Lindsay, Drumbanagher, Robert, only son of John Ewart, Esq., Tullyhappy, near Newry, to Anna Eliza, eldest daughter of Hugh Montgomery, Esq., Fairview House, Grange, Armagh.

Two, a death announcement for his wife Jane in the “Belfast Newsletter”, published Belfast, Saturday, June 30, 1883, under “Deaths”.

MONTGOMERY—June 27, at San Francisco, Jane, the beloved wife of Hugh Montgomery, Esq., formerly of Salters Grange, Armagh.

My research on has suggested that Salters Grange and Grange, Armagh are connected like this: Salters Grange is a townland in the Grange (ONeilland West portion) Civil Parish in the ONeilland West Barony in County Armagh.

Was there a Fairview House in Salters Grange? Did houses have names assigned to them back then? How does one find more information about the Montgomerys in Salters Grange? What about the Fairview House?

Thank you.
