I am trying to find the name of Oliver Amos English's wife and the mother of his only child, Ora Evelyn [ENGLISH]. It is possible judging from the census entries below that his wife may have Ora Lena ? Orlena ? or something similar ??
I'm wondering if Oliver married in Stone Co AR as he was living with his widowed father in Benton Co AR in 1900 and return there by 1920.........???
If anyone has any information to share about Oliver, his wife, or his daughter I would deeply appreciate that information. Kathye

Oliver Amos ENGLISH was the youngest of the 6 children of William Joseph ENGLISH and Rebecca [WILSON] who married 21 Jan 1867 in Benton Co AR.
Rebecca [WILSON] was the daughter of Hardy H. WILSON and Elizabeth [PETRO]who lived in Benton Co AR from 1850 to 1870+
William Joseph ENGLISH was the son of Joseph INGLISH and his 2nd wife Anne [SHELTON] who married 09 Nov 1835 in Hempstead Co AR.He was their only child as Joseph INGLISH died 17 Feb 1836 before William Joseph was born in Oct 1836.
Anne [SHELTON]was the daughter of Jesse SHELTON and Rachel [MARRS] who married 22 Jan 1805 in Logan Co KY. Jesse and Rachel died in Clarksville, Red River Co TX.
After Joseph INGLISH died 17 Feb 1837 in what is now Lamar Co TX, Anne moved to Arkansas where she 2nd married Andrew YOUNG when Joseph was still a baby. Anne and Andrew are reported to have had 2 sons but I have not been able to find Anne, Andrew, Napolean or Thomas on any census to personally verify this. These 2 sons are: Napolean born abt 1838 AR and Thomas born abt 1844 AR.
