I'm looking for the ancestry of Oliver TISDALL. He was born in Ireland (where?) about March 1824. By 1857 he was in the U.S. For most of his life he was employed as a servant (butler). I think that my Oliver was illigitimate. So the TISDALL I'm looking for would probably be his mother. On every document and census that I've seen it says that his mother was born in Ireland and there's a slash through any column pertaining to his father. Oliver married Caroline EDWARDS (b. England). I'm not sure where they married. Their children were: Oliver, b. 8 Jan 1857 m. Mary CRAWFORD Elizabeth, b. 4 Aug 1859 m. William SHAW Emma, b. 8 July 1861 m. Albert SHAW Jane, b. 16 Nov 1863 Missing from 1865 census d. young ? Charles b. 14 July 1866 m. Jeanette McINTOSH Does anyone know anything about this family?
