My gggrandfather Charles Henry Oliver was born Aug 5, 1829 in Lincoln Co, TN. He must have been in Carroll Co, TN before removing to Franklin Co, AR somewhere around 1840 - 1845 because his wife Mary Catherine Moffet was from there. She was the daughter of Elijah Simpson Moffet and Mary Katherine Green ( daughter of Moses Green of Carroll Co, TN ) Charles and Mary ended up in Scott Co ( not sure of the year ) and they moved on to Wise Co, TX in 1878. I have not been able to connect him to any of the other Oliver men in Franklin, Logan, or Scott counties as yet, nor have I been able to find anything other then his pension papers that links him to Lincoln Co, TN. He is my mystery ancestor at this point. Mary Katherine Moffet married Milton Braly ( Brawley ) after Elijah died and then she married Amos Waddle after Milton died. She died on the way to TX and Amos took her back to AR to bury her, or so the story goes. All three of her husbands were in Carroll Co, TN in 1830.
