|Gayle Foster||RE: Martha Ann (Oakes) Nichols|
I never heard of any Indian Blood, on the Oaks side. On the Nichols side, some think that George Washington Nichols, Sr. mother, (we think her name was Sarah) might have been a Tennessee Cherokee.
Do you know who has the original of the photo of Martha Oaks Nichols? I sure would like to have a better quality scan. The one that I have is a VERY small file, and yields a poor quality print.....
My email is email@example.com if you would prefer to use that.
|Gayle Foster||RE: Louisa Kirby #66534217|
Nichols and Oakes ---
I am also related to Oaks/Oakes so I guess we are distant cousins. I am descended from Martha Oaks Nichols, daughter of John Oaks and Elizabeth Barton.
Question.... Do you know where they were in 1840? I haven't found them on census.
What is your family legend about their move to Benton County?
Hope to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org

|Sharon Kay Henry-Steuber||The Wrights|
First I would like to thank you for your time and effort you have put forth in this project. A well rewarded one, fun, and spiritual.
I am Sharon Henry Steuber, Alex and (Nancy) Florence Stanley Wright are my maternal great grandparents. I would like to link a few generations and would you mind transfering
Florence #24573829 and Alexander Wright #24573846 to me?
I know the Oakes are related, the came from Tennessee with my gg grandfather, Iredell Wright. How is Florence Stanley Wright related to the Oakes. Florence is the daughter of Elijah Stanley. I do not know her mother's name. Can you help me with that? My father (Sam Henry) is buried in Alabama and the Wright's are his maternal grandparents. My father's sister, Aunt Florence Henry, is still alive and tells me about the farms, the Oakes, where they moved from etc etc. Is there any information I can help you with? Which family are you interested in?
Thank you so much. God bless you today and always.

I'll let you know if I have anything new to add to Sarah's bio.
I love finding "new" cousins!!
|Gene Collins||Oakes/Collins Genealogy|
My name is Gene R. Collins. I was seeking data on the Oakes Family of Virginia or Oakes families/relatives with Virginia connections and located the "Find A Grave" Website.
My second great-grandmother, Christine Ann Oakes, was the daughter of William "Old Bill" Oakes and Sarah/Sally Phraley. Christine Ann married Brice Collins. Christine Ann's brother, John Randolph Oakes, Sr.'s daugather, Mary Ann Cornelia "Neil" Oakes, married Brice and Christine Ann's son, Zelphini Calvin Collins, my great grandfather. In other words, my great-grandparents Collins were first cousins. Also, the marriage of Mary Ann and Zelphini made John Randolph Oakes, Sr. my second great-grandfather.
My Oakes and Collins research has been extensive. The data I have list Sarah as William's second wife and Ruth Smith as his first. My earlier Oakes/Harrison data is a just a little different from Cheri's, but basically the same. It is back to the 1500s. I have William "Old Bill' Oakes as being born on 07 Jan 1780 in King William, VA He was born to Daniel Oakes, born abt. 1757 in King William, VA and his wife Catharine. I do have a copy of the original deed for the land purchased in Callands/Worlds, Virginia by Daniel in 1785. It is written in Old English and I believe it states the land was paid for in sterling. Sarah applied for a permit or authorization to build on the Tomahawk Creek in 1857. Sometime later she and her two sons, James Alfred and John Randolph did build a grist mill along the Tomahawk on what I believe to be a section of that land. She operated the mill for 25 years. Christie Ann was one of her heirs. I was born in one of the houses on the land which Christine inherited.
I have been in contact with Virginia Doss Oakes in Blairs, VA and Jane Oakes in Abingdon, VA. We have exchanged and compared data/information and a few Oakes/Collins photos.
If anyone is interested in exchanging and comparing/verifying genealogy data/information, you may contact me at: email@example.com

|Hank Rogers||Moses Kirby/Joab Oaks House|
Hello, I wonder if there weren't two homes that get confused...the Virginia magazine article give a different account from my ancestors home.
My ancestor, Wash Hedrick, bought the Joab Oaks Home & all surrounding farmland from one of Oaks children in the late 1870's. He donated the land the Museville Christian Church & cemeteries are on. After the death of Wash & Emma Hedrick, the property went to their daughter Louise Hedrick Hodges. Her granddaughter is who lives in the house today.
|Freda||Winfield Scott Oakes in Bluff Cemetery|
I went back out today and looked. I found Minnie's stone and there are no other Oakes buried in that area. There are stones on both sides of her and they are not Oakes. Now in front of her stone there is a large area where there are no graves but no indication of burials either. Most of the time if there is a grave with out a marker the grass is different and the ground will sink in, this is not the case around any of the ground around that area. Is there anyway he could be buried in another cemetery? The records for Bluff are not always complete so he could be there somewhere but he is not buried anywhere around Minnie. I am sorry if sometime I run across his stone I will post it.
