I am so happy to see so many Oilers researching our name. I have just begun and would love o find out info about where our name decended from. Most of my immidiate family is from Va., Wva, and In. I have the NEW WORLD BOOK OF OILERS and have found this reference but do not know how to use it for I have just started on the net two days ago; Naturalization Applications for Montgomery County. Crawfordsville, IN: Geneal. HistoricalSoc. 1979. "John arrived in the New World in 1828. Pg. 62."
again if anyone would be so kind to help out a newcomer to geneology it will be most appriciated.
