Hi Fiona, Reps usually does mean the person died and the property awaiting settlement. I checked for a will but there was none.
No children born to Samuel Woolaghan at RootsIreland anywhere in Ireland. RI only has two Woolaghan births in Tyrone, both early 19th century and at Sion Mills. No marriages to anyone in Ireland whose father was a Samuel Woolaghan. No Woolaghan or Watters born or married with Killywoolaghan as an address. No deaths for Samuel Woolaghan at any of RI, IrishGenealogy or GRONI. Samuel is the only Woolaghan in the Parish of Ardboe in the GV. He is the onlt Woolaghan in Ardboe. There are only ten Woolaghan entries (several being the same person, I suspect), and two Woollaghan entries, in the whole of Tyrone, all the others being from Urney Parish. There is only one Woolaghan in Ireland in the Tithe Applotment Books at the National Archives website and he is in Co Wicklow. However, the more spelling friendly FamilySearch website has 14, most spelled Woolahan, but none in Co Tyrone. These are the church records available for the Parish of Arboe and may all be viewed at PRONI, a much easier propect than bearding the clergymen of each church for a quick peek: ARBOE, COS LONDONDERRY AND TYRONE C.I. Arboe (Armagh diocese) Baptisms, 1775-1813 and 1824-71; marriages, 1773- 1812 and 1824-45; burials, 1776-1813, 1827-1900 and 1905-06; vestry minutes, 1773-1833; list of the poor, 1789 and 1794; census, 1775; confirmation lists, 1775, 1828, 1833, 1837, 1840, 1843, 1870 and 1873; indexes to baptisms, 1775-1871, and marriages, 1773-1845. Baptisms, 1871-; marriages, 1845-; burials, 1907-; vestry minutes, 1834-; tithe applotment, 1826; register of vestrymen, 1870-; preachers’ books, 1845-62 and 1869-. MIC583/10; D1278 In local custody P. Ballygoney Baptisms, 1848-1937; marriages, 1845-1936; committee minutes, 1891-1997. Session minutes, 1850-1915; Committee minutes, 1848-69. MIC1P/448 In Presbyterian Historical Society R.C. Arboe [or Ardboe] (Archdiocese of Armagh) Baptisms, 1827-80; marriages, 1827-81. MIC1D/34 Are you actually looking for a Samuel in particular, Fiona? Because your best bet is really Castlederg if it is just the surname you are chasing. There is virtually nothing on poor old Samuel of Killywoolaghan! (And I suspect a Woolaghan of Killywoolaghan is probably a spurious name anyway!) Sorry I can be of no more help to you.
