Surnames: Oliver, Irvin, Barksdale
I have been researching the Oliver Family. My great-grandparents were Bettie Ann Irvin and Addison Herman Oliver. Addison was believed to have been born in Dan River District of Pittsylvania County, Sutherlin, Virginia October of 1850. Addison was a slave. After the Emancipation Proclamation, Addison took the name of one of his owners and was freed. I'm not sure of his wife's birth place. She may have been born in Halifax County, Virginia. The family lived in Pittsylvania County, Sutherlin, Virginia which is at the edge of Pittsylvania and Halifax Counties on the Chaney family property.

One of the Oliver's daughters, Mary Elizabeth Oliver married Barney Barksdale in 1900.

Mary Elizabeth Barksdale born in Halifax County, Paces, Virginia in August of 1886. She was daughter of Jefferson and Marie Barksdale. Mary E. Barksdale married George Thomas Oliver, one of the Oliver's sons in 1908.
