Heaven knows what I pressed for this to come up on my screen (from 2013), but come up it did!  The photos are just fabulous and I’m intrigued by the fact that his mother was Mary Ann HARRIS, that he came to Canada and it sounds like he came to Saskatchewan if his death in 1916 was in Manitou.  There is a Manitou Lake and a village of Manitou just north of Watrous.  Could he be the first of our Olivers to come to Saskatchewan?

Hi Shane,

 

What a lovely photo.  How did I manage to miss that  one during all the years I have trawled through Ancestry.  Hope you and all `cousins` out there are keeping well.

 

Regards,   Irene

Great photograph Shane.   I was beginning to think we had exhausted all the available history on the Oliver's.  It's good to see there are some gems still out there.

Bye for now - Linda

Hi All,

Whilst surfing the ancestry public trees I discovered this old picture attached to the tree of ancestry user 'uisenberrywashburn'.

The older gentleman towards the back of the group with the long beard is Jason Oliver. The lady far left, holding a baby, is his daughter Nora, and between them Nora's Husband, David Oke.

Jason was born in Fawler nr Stonesfield in 1834, son of William and Mary Ann (nee Harris). Jason had two elder sisters Sarah Jane and Emma, and also a younger sister Ann.

Records appear to show that he and his family were one of the first Oliver's to emigrate to Canada in 1879.

I'll do a more digging but it seems quite a large family followed.

Anyways, I thought the picture was quite something, one of our earliest born Oliver's to be captured in a photograph, I think the picture is 1900-1910.

Thanks!

Shane
