William W.

I am trying to find fairly recent but deceased OLIVERS. These would be Grand-parents (husband's actually). Sarah Elizabeth LOVITT OLIVER and William W. OLIVER, probably in the Norfolk VA area. Part of the problem is we are uncertain as to Husband's father actual name and date of birth - we have conflicting documentation. His name was either Paul or Philip Blaine OLIVER born either 10/20/1891 or 1895 Norfolk, VA (depends on which child's birth certificate you want to believe). He died in New Cumberland PA in 1956. If I can find William and or Sarah, I might be able to find more ancestors otherwise we are at a dead end. thanks for your help.
