I have written the author, Margaret Oliver and the letter came back "addressee unknown...unable to forward". Does anyone know how I can contact her or even if she is still living...I am a descendant of John Oliver from Cades Cove Tenneessee and I would really like to have one of these books...Thank you Suzanne McElwee

I bought mine at the Cades Cove Gift shop in the park about 15 years ago.

There is a copy on amazon.com for 195.00. I believe the bool was written by Hugh Oliver.

I know Hugh Oliver died some years back, and I think his wife may be dead by now. They were up in late retirement years when i bought my copy from them some 10 years ago. You might try searching the Cades Cove bookshop for a copy. I know the Smokey Mountains/Gatlinburg Welcome Center had copies for sale about 4 years ago.

Thanks to all that replied...such fast response!! Actually I received a direct e-mail from Margaret Oliver herself and after talking with her by telephone today I am happy to report that she is alive and well!! I ordered copies of the book from her and will be glad to get them...I was in Cades Cove over the Memorial Day weekend and the Welcome Center doesn't have any of the books and says they haven't had for quite some time. I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time and was able to participate in the laying of a wreath on John Olivers grave commemorating him being in the War of 1812. again, thanks to all who emailed me and replied thru this forum.

To everyone who has emailed me asking for Margaret' s address and phone number...I am not sure if she would appreciate me posting it here. She does read this list, so if you want her to contact you, just post a request to her here. I had a great conversation with her by telephone and really enjoyed talking to her. Suzanne
