A-1. History

     Barangay Oltama was a very quiet and lowly place, with only a few
households and inhabitants. Based  from  stories  I heard from the old
folks who were the pioneers in this place, their  ancestors  came from
the province from the north, the ilocos provinces  and  La Union. They
migrated to this place,  cleared and cleaned the  forest  lands  which
became their homestead. The cultivated theae land, planted their crops,
and after  a  few  years they took possession of these land worked out
for the necessary papers/or ownership of these lands. 

     Formerly, this barangay was only a sitio of Barangay Cabaruan. It
was originally  called  maybe because  it  is  located on forest hills.
Sitio Talocatoc was presented  in  formerly  called  Barrio Council of
Cabaruan by two councilmen, barely 7  years after 1965. The population
of Talocatoc had increase,  alongside with the same development in the 
community. So  when  Barangay Captain Esteban Borgonia,  the  Barangay 
Captain  on  thar time,  had seen that the population to Talocatoc had
increased  and  met  requirements  of becoming a separate barangay, he 
consulted  the  two councilmen and residents in sitio regarding in the
proposal to make Talocatoc a separate barangay.

     Since  the  residents  were  very  interested and enthusiastic to 
aquire for their selves  a place they may call their own, a resolution
was  passed by the leaders of this place which was approved on January
27, 1972.  Thus,  Barangay  Oltama was created under the leadership of
Cecilio Tomines,  Everisto Lagundi,  Ildefonso Manipon,  and Hugo Agas.
The  name  Oltama  was  called  after  the  name of 3 prominent sitios 
comprising the barangay, namely OLUA, TALOCATOC and MACAPENG. The late
Don Cecilio Tomines  was the first Barangay Captain of Oltama, and his
first  Councilmen  were  Hugo Agas,  Teotimo Lagundi,  Ester Estabilio,
Jose Buenavista, Godofredo Estabilio and Fernando Facun.
