OLIVER, George S. Topeka circa 1910 African-Amer.

Am seeking further information on the parents and siblings of my grandfather George S. OLIVER, African-American, born 1875 in TN, found in 1880 Census in Wabaunsee County, KS with parents John, b. 1843 TN (d. 1931 KS) and Harriet, b. 1858 TN (d. 1937 KS). They are listed as mulatto in KS census, and lived in Maple Hill.

Need name of first wife of George - married in KS, they had a son, Jewell Stillwell OLIVER b. 17, Apr. 1899 (do not know where he was born) but I know they lived in Topeka and he worked as a chauffer for a family named AUERBACH, and operated a billiard parlor at 404 Kansas Avenue (no date), Bell Telephone 513.

Am also interested in siblings listed in various census records from KS:
George H (or John) b. 1874 TN
Birdie or Berdie (f) b. 1879 MO (later m. Walter GLEN)
Bartley S (f) b. 1881 KS
Amanda (f) b. 1883 KS

Some of his siblings lived in Topeka.

Thank you,

Denise
