Diane,

The Samuel Oliver you named was not the father of the children you have listed. He was their grandfather. Samuel was b. abt. 1720 and was a Revolutionay Soldier. He fought at the battle of Charles Town (Charleston, SC) and was taken prisoner and died in prison abt. 1781. Most of the children you listed were born after that date, therefore, cannot be the children of Samuel.

I have these children being of Samuel's son, James, b. 1750 SC and d. 2 Oct. 1802 Abbeville, SC. He was married twice and the first two children (James and John C.) were by the first wife, Mary ____. The others were by the second wife, Margaret CHEVES.

I have lots of information on the family from there on down. I descend from James' son, John C. Let me know what information you want/need.

Phyllis (Oliver) Abbott, GA

Phyllis,
Thank you for setting me straight, between Samuel and James.
When I look back at what I typed I see the error. I should have said that Samuel and Elizabeth had son James. James and Mary had the eleven children. What information I received came for the LDS Church site. I would love to hear from you, so we can compare notes more. Do you have anything on Jane (Jennie) married to John Boatwright? I see that you live in Ga., we live in Jax Fl. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Diane,
Are you, by chance related to any of the Oliver's from the Jax., Maxville, Baldwin or Starke area? If so that is my line also.
Good hunting,
Irene Oliver Flowers

Irene,
I don't know YET if I am. I live in Orange Park, 5 minutes from Jax.
I just started on the Oliver's and the only thing I know is some names and that Jane (Jenny) Oliver married my
ggggreatgrandfather. They lived in Abbeville, SC, moved to Washington County, Ga. His name was John Boat(w)right,
the time frame is abt 1750 - 1860. Jane's grandfather was Samuel
in Abbeville, her father was James, born abt 1750. She was born abt 1800 in Abbeville, SC.
Does that fit with your line?

Hi Diane,
I don't have those names. However, I don't go that far back yet. Here is my home page if you would like to look around and see if you recognize anyone.

Phyllis,

I'm a great-great-great grandson of Samuel Oliver, one of James Oliver's (of Abbeville) last children born, apparently named for grandfather Samuel. As I understand it, the three youngest children were turned over to an aunt after James died. The aunt and family moved to Gwinnett, GA. I've been to Samuel's grave several times in Loganville. I don't live far from there.

Best,
Erik OLiver

Diane,

I am a descendant of Samuel Oliver, Jennie's brother. We should compare notes!
