Probate abstract from the PRONI wills site:

Letters of Administration of the personal estate of Thomas Leckey late of Trinaltinagh County Londonderry Road Contractor who died 29 November 1892 at Kilrea were granted at Londonderry to James Johnston of Drumsara said County County Cess Collector a Creditor. (By Order of Court).

Trinaltinagh is the same townland as is listed on the 1887 marriage certificate so it seems to tie the two Thomases together. It’s in the parish of Desertoghill.

This may be the dead Thomas’s wife with 2 children in the 1901 census:

Same household in 1911:
