F N B OLIVER, Eleanor SASSER, 1860 census @ Waukeenah

The 1860 US census shows Ferna Napoleon Bonaparte OLIVER living at Waukeenah, Jefferson Co FL. His occupation is overseer, he was born 18-teens probably GA. His wife was Eleanor SASSER, born about 1827 GA. They have their eldest 3 children with them, Mary (old enough to be in school; ages not given, only names), John T, and Clara Margaret born 1858 Screven Co, GA.

Although I know little about either parent yet, they were in FL after 1858 and before 1860. Their next child Lawton was born FL about 1861-2, and possible more children: Joseph J born about 1865, Anderson Peeler born about 1867-8, although those next two may have been born in GA as was the youngest I know of, Syvia or Syennia, born 1869-70.

By 1878 they're in Henderson Co, TX. I have no idea of the eldest two children's whereabouts. Clara definitely made it to Texas and married there.

Has anyone a line on who were the parents of Fern and Eleanor? Or an idea where they were during the civil war, the period 1862-1878; 1870 census?

I recently have been able to prove that FNBO was the first child of John Goodwin Oliver and Temperance Outlaw thru a handwritten 1850 family tree of a relative of Prescott Key which discovered by a member of the Outlaw family. It now makes sense to me because Temperance Outlaw brother Edward V Outlaw first child is named Meshack Napolean Bonaparte Outlaw. Names too close to be a coincidence.

I was wondering if you have any family history you could share with me as it relates to John Goodwin Oliver. I have been at a roadblock with JGO for quite some time. Most of the records in Georgia were burned during the cival war.

My GGG Grandfather was Phineas Oliver, younger brother of FNBO. We beleive Temperance died in the child birth of Phineas. If you are a reletive of FNBO and have had your DNA done, I would like to see if we are a match.
