Oliver arrived in the Valley no later than 1850. Further research is needed to narrow his year of travel and identify which company he traveled with.
He is seen in the Utah Stake City Ward records at the time of a rebaptism on 4 January 1852 with his wife, Catherine Thompson Speed. It is uncertain if they crossed the plains together or if they were married in Salt Lake.
Birth and death dates listed were found in a personal, online family history record (such as Family Tree, Ancestry, or My Heritage), without any accompanying documentation. Further research is needed to verify its accuracy.
