Oliver Royal married Augusta Relief (Vincent) Royal December 21, 1892 in Twin Mounds Co., KS. Augusta was the daughter of William E. and Nancy S. (Young) Vincent. Oliver and Augusta had five children and one stillborn: Eunice, Malissa, John William, Oscar Eugene, and Rhoda Ellen. Augusta died at the age of 81, Oliver, at 84.

Oliver was the youngest son of John W. & Catherine (Cantonwine) Royal and the grandson of Charles and Mary Magdalena (Scholl) Cantonwine. Charles, the patriarch of the Cantonwine family, immigrated to America from Prussia in 1806, arriving in Philadelphia, Penn., aboard the ship Orlando. The ship's passenger list shows "Chr. Kuntentwine, single man." The name Kuntentwine later evolved to Cantonwine, and Charles appears to be the only surnamed Kuntentwine/Cantonwine to immigrate to America. Eight or so years after his arrival in Philadelphia, in about 1814, Charles married Mary Magdalena Scholl, daughter of Charles Jacob & Margaret (Fuhr) Scholl, in Bedford county, Pennsylvania.
