James Lowe Settled in "Olive"(?)
Posted by: Sandra A. Miller Date: June 16, 2001 at 09:14:37

I'm confused over the different places with the word "Olive" as a part of the name. I have seen "Olive Green", "South Olive", "Mt. Olive", and plain "Olive". Can anyone help me?

In the 1887 History of Noble County, Ohio (Indexed) on page 320, it says, "James Lowe was the name of the first settler at or near Olive." Where would this have been? I believe James Lowe was my ggggg grandfather. (I have been able to find his grave in the Lowe Cemetery in Sharon on the land that was the farm of his son Robert and Robert's daughter Mary Ann Lowe Manifold. His body had been moved from the area in which he had lived.)

I would appreciate any information.
