found by Linda Oliver in Feb. 2012:
My (Sheila Schmutz) interpretation of this posting by Dr. Ward Oliver is that he reviewed LDS microfilms of some will books from Halifax Co, VA and found "In book 32, p 546, Oct 1816, Nathaniel Barksdale and William Oliver made oath to administrate the estate of Thos A. Oliver, dec'd, Thomas Moon and John J. Oliver their securities. This was very near the end of book 32. " [I wonder if that could be Thomas Moore, a possible relative of Elizabeth Moore who is/was the mother of these children?]
"In book 35, p 279, August 1819 there is a suit: Harrison Oliver, Thomas Oliver, and Reuben Oliver by their guardian William Oliver vs Mary Oliver and Nancy Oliver infants by their guardian Francis Moon".
[Note in the 1820 census I found a Major Francis Moore.]
Note that if William Oliver was already appointed in relation to guardianship of Thomas A. Oliver's orphans in 1816, he must have been born before 1795. If the 1820 census below pertains to him, then he was at least 26 in 1820, so born before 1794. It is possible that the 3 boys under 10 and the orphans of Thomas A. Oliver: Harrison Oliver, Thomas A. Oliver Jr., Rubin Oliver. The girl under 10 is ???? The woman over 45 is likely his mother or mother-in-law.
