There were many Francis Olivers and I haven't collected much on them. I've only been trying to document my own line (Durrett, Caleb, Simeon & Henry Shelton Oliver).

Some corrections, Caleb Oliver married Nancy White (d/o Thomas White on Sept. 10, 1792. There License and Bond were applied for on the 5th as recorded in Orange County, VA Courthouse. Caleb and Nancy's children were: Tabitha Oliver who married Bartley Higgenbotham, Thomas White Oliver, Henry Shelton Oliver (my 4th great-grandfather), Sarah S. Oliver (unmarried), Winston Oliver, Nancy Oliver who married (1) Benjamin franklin Hull (2) Matthew Peters, John J. Oliver, Milly Oliver who married Asa Mann, Simeon M. Oliver (my 3rd great-grandfather), Martha Oliver who married Richard thompson, Samuel Oliver, and Rachael Oliver who married Thomas cotten. My great grandmother was a descendant of Henry Shelton Oliver and her husband, my great-grandfather, was a descendant of Simeon Oliver.

I'm still trying to verify all of this by collecting Estate records and such. Any documents you find pertaining to this family, I'd love to get access to or at least the proper reference to the courthouse record books which the documents are located.

I don't know much about Durrett Oliver. I am very interested in where he died (Orange County?) so I can go after his Estate Papers which would show his heirs like Caleb Oliver. I am also trying to locate Nancy white's father, Thomas White. I can't find where he died either, so I can locate his Estate papers. any help would be appreciated, and I'll keep a lookout for Francis Oliver information.
