This page is open to all Oliphant's, to those with an ancestor who bears the name, or to anyone interested in the information provided.

My name is Ben Oliphant and I have been researching these Oliphants for many years. I cannot confirm that all of the information on this page is 100% accurate, but I believe it to be so, or I would not put it on here. If anyone has any questions, suggestions, corrections, information or comments, I would be happy to hear from you at

ps I have, for now, removed the tree's that include James Oliphant, as there is a controversy over if it is the right James (there were two James Oliphants in TN at the time, and it seems they were often confused). Once I sort out the right from the wrong I will put the tree's back on. Thanks.
