Olivia was born in Camperdown, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

She married John Leonard ("Leonard") Womboldt on 25 April 1868 in Bridgewater, Kings, Nova Scotia. [1][2]

She married Reuben Boliva in Rhodes Corner, Nova Scotia, on 11 Nov. 1903. [3] On this marriage certificate and the record of her marriage to Leonard, her parents are listed as Isaac and Catherine. [1][3]

She died in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1927.

According to Peg (Oldford) Nelson:

"Hilda lived with Olivia when she was small and thought she was her mother until one day she heard the old man Leonard tell Olivia that Maggie (Nana Beaton) should come and get her own brat. Leonard was old and feeble and probably rather jealous of the attention given Hilda. Hilda adored her grandmother (who also adored her). Hilda (our mother) said that Ruben Boliva was a very kind, dear man.
"Olivia and her sister, Lucretia, were gentle daughters of gentle parents. They were brought up in the fishing village of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Their parents were strict Baptist and many hours were spent learning the bible. Even the school was held in the church, learning bible lessons along with ABC's. Needle work or games were never allowed on the Sabbath Day. Olivia grew up feeling very loved, and this gentle way was passed on to her children and grandchildren."

A story passed on to Peg (Oldford) Nelson by a relative in Rochester, NY, and another Womboldt in Nova Scotia:

"When Leonard's first wife died (Sophia Swicker Womboldt) there were many living children. He and Sophia had 11, but some were grown or died in infancy. However, when Olivia saw the baby, James Henry (born 1866), her heart went out to the whole family. This little guy was dirty and full of sores. She married Leonard. His oldest daughter at the time was almost as old as Olivia."
