Joseph F. OLIVER, 29, b.
AL was listed in the 1860 census as a teacher. Listed also was Martha,
26, b. AL; Georgiana, 5; Catherine, 18; and Frances, 8. Joseph was most
likely the son of John and Elizabeth (Phelps) OLIVER; Catherine and Frances
were orphans of Joseph and Mary Oliver of Conecuh. In Sept. 1863, Martha
Ann OLIVER, widow of Joseph (who was in Co. H, 23rd AL Inf.) filed a claim
for a pension. Does anyone know what became of Martha and Georgiana OLIVER?
