0live (0llive) Dixon was born in 1800 in Monroe County, Virginia. She married Jack Stover, but no record has been found of the place or date of the marriage.

The 1850 U.S. Census for Madison County, Indiana, shows 0live, her husband Jack Stover, and six children living in Madison County. The children were Elijah 27, Gorsay 16, Henry 12, 0live 9, Mary 6, Eunice 3. The close feeling she had for her one brother and two sisters is shown by the naming of her children - Henry, 0live, and Eunice. The U.S. Census shows that all the children of Jack and 0live were born in Virginia (now West Virginia) . Therefore, 0live and Jack apparently stayed in (W) Virginia until 1848 and then migrated to Madison County before 1850. The 1851 "Summitville, Indiana" letter shows she was living there at that time.
