I have been researching the Oliver Family of Pennsylvania for the better part of ten years. I have been able to trace my family back to 1800 and possibly earlier than that. I believe the family lived in Essex County New Jersey, prior to coming to Pennsylvania, in about 1822. Pictured above is the oldest Oliver Family picture I have, It is my great- great-grandfather Arthur Oliver and his family.
Most of the information I have found has been dates. I would like to learn more about the lives of the Oliver Family members. This site is a work in progress, so if anyone has any information on the Oliver Family, from Pennsylvania or New Jersey, I would love to hear from you. Try the links I have included for some helpful web sites and books to aid you in your genealogy hunt.
All you need is a few names and dates and the pieces of the puzzle will start to come together. Remember your local library is also a great source of information.
If anyone has information about my Oliver Family and would like to share it with me, please contact,
