I have an OAKS, Lyman F., b. 1821 Hamburg, Erie Co., NY. He was the son of OAKS, Lyman b. 1797 Worcester, Otsego Co., NY and CLARK, Eunice b. 1806 Danby, Rutland Co., VT. The elder Lyman was the son of OAKS, Samuel b. 1771 MA and SHAW, Mary "Polly" b. 1775. (Samuel and Polly also had a son named Samuel so that would tie in with the younger Lyman having an Uncle Samuel).
Now I'm also aware of an OAKS, Lyman b. Jul 23, 1807 in MA or NY. He was married to TOBEY, Nancy b. Jan 26, 1814 Addison Co., VT. He was the son of OAKS, ? and BANCROFT, Lucinda b. Nov 22, 1774 MA. I don't have further information on the ancestry of this line. And if anyone can give me a listing of OAKS, Lyman and TOBEY, Nancy's children, I'd be MOST grateful.
