I have been trying to find more info on the family.
I was born In Kentucky.the family as I was told was from Chillicothee Ohio via England and France.My Grandfather was Lyman Oliver.
My understanding is Richard Olliver dropped 1 of the l's to help him get a job her in the states after he came. Don't really know if it's true or not.I have seen his gravestone in Kentucky and it does have 2 L's he died in the early 1900's.
My father died when I was 12 so I don't have much info on the family.
