|Christopher Oliver and Eleanor White were married 15 March 1818 in the parish of Tweedmouth. To date, little else is known of them.
In the 1861 Belleville census, they were living with their daughter, Catherine, and her family in a one-story frame building. I have been unable to trace their whereabouts after that date.

According to the Oliver family Bible, Christopher married Eleanor on 27 May 1816, whereas the marriage register states 15 Mar 1818. This creates one of two problems with James. Was the date wrong for his birth or was he illegitimate? The other problem: was he even a member of the family, as he doesn't appear in the parish registers with the rest of the children.
