St. Charles County
|Death: ||Jan. 28, 1897|
Information from Warren "Lindey" Shaw.
Oliver was the son of Joseph F. & Ruth M. Penn) Abington.
His siblings were:
Keziah Ann (1827 – 1876)
Catherine E. (1830 – 1910)
Fanny (1833 – 1856)
George M. (1837 – 1920)
William P. (1839 – 1920)
There is a question about Oliver's middle name. Was it Perry or was it Penn, his mother's maiden name. Lindsey, his gg-grandson, has his death certificate, which shows his name as Oliver Perry, his pocket watch, which also shows his name Oliver Perry, & his marriage record to Jane A. Hughes (Lindsey's gg-grandmother), which shows his name is Oliver Perry
Oliver married Jane A. Hughes in Vernon, Nevada Co, MO on March 12, 1860.
Their children were:
Joseph Y. (1861 – 1888)
Thomas Hughes (1864 – 1949)
George Oliver (1865 – 1943)
Edward Lee (1867 – 1955)
Fanny (1869 – 1873)
Virgil (1874 – 1897)
Harry (1876 - 1899)
On July 10, 1860, within four months after they were married, Oliver & Jane were living on a farm in Cuivre, St. Charles Co, MO. Their post office was Wentzville. Oliver was 29 years old, & Jane was 21. They owned real estate valued at $1600 and personal wealth valued at $600. Oliver's brothers, George, age 23, (a farmer $1600 - $400), & William, age 20, (a laborer $800 - 300) lived with them. Two other men, Alfred Fanning & Wm. Mense were also part of the household.
They apparently were living on the same farm on Aug. 21, 1870. Oliver was 39, & Jane was 30. She had given birth to:
Oliver's brother, George, age 28, was still living with them.
Their daughter, Fannie, died in 1873. Jane gave birth to two more children, Virgil in 1874 & Harry in 1876. Jane died in 1876, possibly during childbirth or shortly thereafter. Joseph died in 1888. Jane, Virgil, & Joseph are buried on the farm.
Oliver's second marriage was to Nina B. Wood in St. Charles Co, MO on Jan. 14, 1880. They had a son, Carl C. born on Mar. 15, 1886/1887.
On June 19, 1880, Oliver & Nina lived in Doniphan, Ripley Co, MO. Oliver, who worked as a miller, was 48 & Nina was 30. Oliver's three sons from his previous marriage were with them: George (14), Virgil (6), & Harry, 4. Albert J. Green, a minister, age 26, lived with them.
Some time later the family moved to Poplar Bluff, Butler Co, MO.
Nina died in 1892.
Oliver & Jane's son, Virgil, died on February 22, 1897, the same year as Oliver. Their son, Harry, died on May 6, 1899.
