Olivers of Wind(Winn) Parish
Posted by: Bunny Oliver Date: May 23, 2001 at 07:44:17
  of 18896

I am seeking info re my husband's g-grandfather, Dr. James P. Oliver. When a small baby in late 1837 or early 1838, his parents, Thomas and Elizabeth Holt Oliver, moved to Wind(Winn) Parish, La., from Tennessee. In 1857, James P. began the study of medicine with Drs. Wright & Merideth of Columbia, La. He entered the medical department of the University of Louisiana and graduated about 1860, then began a practice in Morehead Parish. He returned to Wind Parish where he married Catherine Ann Haddox, daughter of Thomas J and Mary King Haddox.

I have no info on Dr. Oliver's parents or siblings. Whatever you can share will be welcomed.
