*daughter, Sarah D. Oaks, is not named in the 1850 census because she had married Henry Addison Jefferson on 08/31/1848 & had her own household
**last child, John Oaks, isn't listed in 1850 census because he wasn't born until 1852 in Pittsylvania Co, VA {per the Pedigree Resource File at familysearch.org}

Wash Hedrick's purchased the Joab Oakes house & all the surrounding farmland from one of the Oakes children in the late 1870's. He donated the land the Museville Christian Church & cemetery are located on. After the death of Wash & Emma Hedrick, the property went to their daughter, Louise (Hedrick) Hodges. Her granddaughter now lives in the house.
