Surnames: Lawder/Lawther - Killyleagh
I take it that apart from Jane Weir your tree lived outside of Ireland - U.S.A.? Many of the names on your list are found in Killyleagh and Inch though there are some slight spelling changes. For Instamnce the selling in Killyleagh was Lawther and McCleer was McCleery. Spelling changes were common after people emigrated. Many of the Lawthers listed in the Killyleagh Presbyterian Graveyard had relatives who emigrated to the U.S. The Ulster Historical Foundation in Belfast (uhf.org.uk) has published most of the Ulster gravestone inscriptions and the Killyleagh/Inch ones are in one of their County Down paperback series called
"Old Families of Downpatrick and District, from gravestone Inscriptions, Wills and Biographical notes. To copy all the possibly relevant information would take some time but you can order the copy from either BooksUlster.com or from the UHF itself for about $10.00. I will excerpt the Lawther entries in the Killyleagh graveyard and you can decide if they are possibly relevant.
LAWTHER
Erected by James Lawther of redwing, Minnesota, America, to the memory of his mother Eliza Lawther of Cluntagh, born Dec. 23 1810, died Oct. 20 1833. The above James Lawther, born Aug. 17 1831 died June 21, 1916
LAWTHER
Erected to the mem. of James Lawther of Ballytrim who d. May 7, 1877 aged 62. His son Robert Galt Lawther d. Nov. 21, 1857 aged 9. His son William Lawther d. Jan. 13, 1862 aged 21. Also his wife Sarah who d. Jan. 15, 1906. And his dau.-in-law Rachael d. Feb. 29, 1912. Also his son James d. June 8, 1915. And his great grandson James, infant son of John Lawther, Killyleagh Corporation, d. Jan 31, 1924 aged 2. Also the above John Lawther d. May 23, 1958. Also Rachael, dau. of James L., d. Mar. 15, 1967. Mary A., wife of above John Lawther d. Mar. 18, 1967.
LAWTHER

LAWTHER
In loving mem. of William Lawthere, Cluntagh, who d. June 11 1900 aged 61. His wife Sarah who d. Feb. 13, 1917 aged 75. Their dau. Sarah Anna who d. Feb. 23, 1907 aged 32. Their son John who died in Seattle, U.S.A. Aug. 24, 1918 aged 46. their dau. Margaret Scott who d.Feb. 22, 1931 aged 56. Their son Samuel Stevenson who d. Ap. 3, 1932 aged 52. Their son William James who d. Nov. 14, 1934 aged 56. Robert Lawther d. Jan. 11, 1943 aged 72. Jane Eliz Lawther d. Dec. 18, 1945 aged 77.
There are also Lawther/Moore and Lawther/Ringland gravestones.
KERR
Erected in mem. of Samuel kerr of Shrigley who d. May 25, 1897 aged 65. His wife Eliz. Jane d. dec. 6, 1897 aged 60. Also their son Robert who d. in America Nov. 10, 1884 aged 25. Also their son Charles Kennedy kerr who d. Mar. 14, 1903 aged 28.
If these might be your relatives it would seem likely that there are still Lawthers living in Killyleagh.
Also found were James Lawder, Magheracramoney, Inch but no gravestone there. He worled on the Maxwell estate at Finnebrogue. There is no gravestone in the Inch cemetery. Also Peter Lawder of Drumminmore, Shankill. Tithes 1833.
The 1886 directory for Killyleagh lists W. Lawther, farmer, Cluntagh, David Cleland at Derryboy, James boyd at Clay, Toy, John Scott, Corporation, Rev. J.R.McCleery, presb. minister, Mckee's but no Mackay. There seems to have been a close connection between the Rev. McCleery and the Clelands.
