    It is possible that his father is Daniel Oliver born 1775 In Worchester Co, MA who reportedly had a son named Philander born 1805 in Canada and an older son Daniel Pomeroy Oliver in VT, but I think it is more likely his father was Clark Oliver, brother of Daniel Oliver, Sr. because Leonard had a son named Clark.
