I'm new to this forum and would like to know where the connection between Oliver and William was made. I have read here that Melissa (Haley) Holifield, a second cousin once removed from me, posted that she has traced back to an Oliver who was the father of William but gives no references. I have lost Melissa's e-mail or I would contact her directly.
The family tree that my family has had has been in the family for 30+ years and at the time it came into our posession William of Chatham count NC was as far back as it went.
So where was the source of the connection between William and an Oliver.
