The son of Jesse & Mary Skaggs, born in Fayette county, West Virginia.
He married Arminta Bailey, the daughter of Thompson P. and (Isabel) Elizabeth Bailey, in Mercer county, WV on 24 Nov 1886. They gave thier ages for this record as 26 & 16, and Oliver's occupation as "carpenter". The ceremony was performed by J.B. Greever.
Four children were recorded born to Arminta and Oliver in WV Births, in Mercer county, 1888, 1890, 1895, 1898, these are listed on the memorial of Arminta.
The 1910 census at Fruitland, Canyon, Idaho has a transcription reading OJ KAGGS and his family, though the names are misspelled the wife and children and their ages match with other census records of West Virginia and Oregon. Three sons on this census have birthplaces given as Idaho.
Oliver's occupation is written as "Farmer" on these birth records for his children. His death record from Oregon gives "Farmer" in the occupation space also.
His parents are not given on this record (UNKNOWN); but their names were written in the ledger of marriages from Mercer county, West Virginia.
