Who are the parents of George Washington Oliver in Lincoln or Macon Counties North Carolina? George Washington Oliver was born 1825, and died in 1863. I have plenty of civil war records, census listing his wife ( Mary Nancy Hopkins) and children. But the dispute is whether his parents are Thomas (born 1775) and Rachel C Oliver (born 1779) (OR) if his father is Joseph Oliver (born 1795) with an unknown 1st wife prior to Joseph's documented marriage at age 41 with Martha Patsy Rhodes in 1836. I have Joseph's death and estate sell in 1855 listing GW Oliver purchasing a few items, and it is speculated that GW and Joseph are brothers, but no documented support for this. It would make more since that George Washington Oliver is his child. If I can find proof of Thomas Oliver's death between 1820-1830, that would help solve this mystery.

I also have wondered about G. W. Oliver's ancestry. He's my 3rd Gr-grandfather.

Family records show birth in Lincoln Co., NC.

I'm wary of internet info, but several of Ancestry's family record hints, have

George Washington as father and Abigail McKee as his mother.

Just something else to work on

I have a George Washington Lay in my family. He is Mary Essie Webb's Grandfather. Mary is the mom of Lottie Mae Lay. Bowman B. Oliver is my Grandfather, Paul Oliver's brother.
George W. Lay is Guss Lay's father. The father in law of Mary Essie Webb Lay.  Essie Webb Lay is the mother of Lottie Mae Lay. Lottie married Bowman B. Oliver. They had three children Wm B Oliver, Bobby Oliver and Gwen Oliver.   Lottie and Bowman are both deceased. Lottie was  my father's oldest sister. Essie Webb Lay was my father's mother and my grandmother.
