      The Olive family has given it's name to a number of roads in southwest Wake County. This lovely rural rise decorated with wild raspberries and queen Anne's lace, on a once dirt road, holds the remains of a few of this family. Just up the road is a cluster of new schools and a number of subdivisions. The road has been paved and more urbanization is soon to come.
