About Oliver Thomas Edward Fitz-Patrick

As the story goes, Oliver Thomas Edward Fitz-Patrick, Esq., came to Texas from Ireland circa 1885. He bought sheep from a Mexican Ranchero and Comancheros later stole them back from him. In the interim, he met Pheobe Lucretia White who was visiting from California. The Whites had settled west of San Antonio, Texas in the 1840’s. Colonel John Adams White later moved from Texas to Stockton, California where Pheobe had been born in 1873.

Oliver and Phoebe fell in love. Oliver felt that it was necessary to return to Ireland and settle his accounts before entering a marriage. He promised Phoebe that he would come back for her. Seven years later he returned. They were married in August of 1893 at St. Marks Church in San Antonio, Texas. They then rejoined her family in Ventura County, California. They had three children, Mary, John, and Olivia.
