Does anyone have a connection to an Oliver family living in Gwennap, Cornwall in 1861?

Thomas Oliver age 23
Martha Oliver age 22

All were born in Cornwall and were living with Martha's mother Alice Carlyon at the time.

Hello everyone,

Last year I posted (I thought :-\) quite a long reply to all of you. I have been absent from the site for over 6mths and have just noticed my reply never made it. I have read that this can happen with posts of considerable length. I  apologise for what must have seemed rudeness on my part.

I hope you are all making progress........I'm not!!  :)

warm wishes,

Wendy (Melbourne)

Hi Alli,

Firstly please accept my apology for not replying sooner.

I passed on your information to my 2nd cousin who is delighted with what you have found. She has sent a reply indicating how happy she is to at last have the information she has long waited for. You have made her day!!

On behalf of us both......a big thankyou for taking the time to help solve a mystery!!!   :)

Another 'Rootschat' kind soul.

All the best and many thanks again Alli,

Wendy.............Melbourne, Aust.

Hello D,

Why indeed!!!

This is a very helpful site and it is hard to imagine anyone choosing not to be a part of it.

I thank you for taking the time to reply. You confirmed my thoughts.

All the best with your searching,

Wendy........Melbourne, Aust.

PS: After viewing your names of research, I shall never complain about my 'John Price from Wales' again.   :-\
