I am also looking for Oaks in Tishomingo and Prentiss Counties in Mississippi. My husband's grandfather, James Marcus (Mark) Wilson married Verlon Oaks. I was wondering if you had ever heard of her. My husband does not ever remember seeing any of her family.

Verlon Oaks born July 15, 1888 MS died December 03, 1964 buried in Allenline Community cemetery,Mississippi ,Prentiss County.
Prentiss County MS was once part of Tishomingo Co. MS

Notes for James Franklin Oaks:
Served in Confederate Army, 26th Mississippi Regiment, Company A. Wade Oaks has official record of his service as well as a copy of a letter written by his son, Lycurgus Morgan Oaks, relating some stories of the war to a relative. I also have a copy of his Confederate Pension Application. It contains his age, time in Mississippi, location at time of surrender (Danville, Virginia), and his signature with James, Jr's. signature as witness. His military record shows him in numerous battles as well as time in Way Military Hospital, Meridian, Mississippi. He was captured February, 1861, with his regiment during his first battle at Fort Donelson, Tennessee. He was in a Union army prison, Camp Morton, in Indianapolis, Indiana, until a prisoner exchange at Vicksburg in September, 1862. Most of the early battles were in central Mississippi with the later battles in Virginia.

On a lighter note, I have a copy of a court record where he and William Walker were fined $2 each for fighting in the town of Jacinto (county seat of old Tishomingo County) on 1/25/1847. He was 20 years old at the time.

Shown on 1850 Tippah County, Mississippi, census, age 24, in Division 2, page 447, dwelling 756 with his brother - John Wesley age 22, his aunt - Eleanor Norton age 55, and his sister - Martha age 15.

He and wife report born in Tennessee. He was next door to his brother-in-law, William Marion Harp and near his father-in-law, Wiley Harp. In his household were wife, Adaline, age 31, and children: Mary age 7, Jane age 5, Lycurgus age 3, and Stafford age 8 months.

Shown in 1870 Tishomingo County, Mississippi, census in Highland, page 7, dwelling 41. Last name spelled (Oko) on census index and appears to be spelled (Oks) on census. Shows his age as 43 and wife, Rachel, as 41. Children listed are Mary E. age 17, and Jane W. age 15, Lycurgus age 14, Stafford L. age 9, and James age 7. James and Rachel report born in Tennessee with all children born in Mississippi. Storment family are neighbors.

Shown in 1880 Tishomingo County, Mississippi, census in Beat 5, page 2, dwelling 12. Shows his age as 55 and wife as 52.

Shown in 1900 Tishomingo County, Mississippi, census in Beat 4, ED 115, sheet 2B, dwelling 33. His age is shown as 74. Wife's age is shown as 71. Daughter, Mary Ellen, is shown in household, age 47, as well as Walter Storment, age 26, shown as boarder. James and Rachel report parents born in North Carolina***.

Wife is in household as age 81 as well as daughter, Mary Ellen, age 57. Shows Rachel Adeline as mother of 5 children with 5 living. James and Rachel report parents born in North Carolina***. Lycurgus Oaks and family are next door.

***James' brother, John, and other siblings, report parent's birth in Virginia except one sister who reported father born in Maryland and mother in Virginia. All other records point to Virginia. Since James was about 15 when his father died and the family moved to Mississippi as well as of an advanced age when this was reported, this is assumed to be an error with Virginia as the correct birthplace.

Generation No. 6

40. James McKenney Oakes49,50, born June 03, 1795 in Virginia51,52; died October 17, 1841 in Coffee County, Tennessee in Beech Grove area near Norton fork of the Duck River53,54. He was the son of 80. Laban Oakes and 81. Susannah McKenney. He married 41. Jane Norton October 04, 1820 in Virginia or Rockingham County, North Carolina (needs verification)55,56.
41. Jane Norton57,58, born May 02, 1796 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia59,60; died Abt. 1849 in Union County, Mississippi (was a part of Tippah County until 1870)61,62. She was the daughter of 82. Henry Wilson Norton and 83. Frances Norton.

Notes for James McKenney Oakes:
Wade Oaks has a copy of James Oaks' will. It has Obadiah Freeman, and his son, Isaac W. Oaks, as executors. Attesting were Thomas A. Brown and Henry Hamaker. It leaves the plantation known as the Douglas place, on the Norton branch of the Garrison Fork of the Duck River in Coffee County, Tennessee, to his family. It also mentions the disposal of the property known as the Harp place, no location given. It is dated 1/7/1841. I'm not sure of date of death. Also have copies of several land transactions for James Oaks and Hesikiah Oaks. Earlier records are in Bedford County which was shortly afterward absorbed into the new Coffee County. James bought land from Henry W. Norton and also from Hesikiah who was the executor for James Burke, from whom Hesikiah had earlier bought land. These purchases were in 1830 and 1831. Names are spelled Oakes on some documents and Oaks on others. In 1842, Isaac W . Oaks, as executor for James Oaks, sold land to William McDaniel. Witnesses were Meredith Norton, Robert B. Carlile, and an illegible name. This should have James Oaks' death between the will date and the 1842 land sale date. Date of death shown on my records was from a handwritten copy of a copy of a family Bible. The Buchanan family gave me the date from their handwritten copy. They said the Bible had been in the Gammel family and later with the Storey family, descendants of the Gammels. I do not know if it still exists. Original purchase from Henry Norton adjoined land of James Burke, William Norton, and ? McBride.

James Oaks' Will transcribed from copy:

James Oaks of the County of Coffee and State of Tennessee do make and publish this my last will and testament hereby revoking and making void all former wills heretofore made by me. First I direct that my body be decently interred in said county in a manner suitable to my condition in life as to such wordly estate as it has pleased God to intrust me with. I dispose of the same as follows - First I direct that my debts and funeral expenses be paid as soon as possible after my decease with the first monies that come into the hands of my executors. Secondly, I do give and bequeath to my beloved wife two horses, two cows and calves, all the household and kitchen furniture, a yoke of oxen and cash and what few hoggs (sp) I have to be her right and property to help raise my children. Thirdly I bequeath to my beloved wife the plantation known by the Douglas place to provide and raise the children on for fifteen years after which time it may be sold or divided among my lawful heirs. I devise that the Harp place be sold as soon as it can be done for cash but if there should not come money enough into the hands of the executors after collecting my debts and selling all the stock except which I have given to my wife then and in that case I want the Harp place sold to the best advantage and the proceeds applied to paying off the debts. If it should not be sold, I want it rented out and it ???? or divided among my heirs when the other land is. Finally I advise for the Black woman, Lucretia, to be hired out after the expiration of this present year and the ????? Jim as soon as he is large enough both to be hired out yearly until the land is sold or divided among the heirs and I want my beloved wife to keep the ??? little girl named Rose until the division of the land to help raise the children and then all the negroes and their increase and the proceeds of hiring and the proceeds arising from the sale or ???? of the Harp place if there should be any all equally divided among my heirs.

i. Isaac Wilson Oaks67,68, born August 29, 1821 in Tennessee69,70; died December 21, 1845 in Tennessee? (Death date is not confirmed. Later records may dispute.).

Notes for Isaac Wilson Oaks:
The 1840 census of Coffee County, Tennessee, appears to have Isaac Oakes in the household of his father Jas Oakes by matching the number and ages of children.

Undocumented family records show his death to be in 1845.

The 1850 census shows several Isaac Oaks in various states. An Isaac Oaks, born 1821 in Tennessee, is shown in the household of Micheal and Sarah Oaks north of Apple Creek in Greene County, Illinois. He is too old to be a child since Micheal was born in 1810. An uncle.......perhaps? The only Isaac Oaks in Tennessee was in Anderson County born in 1827 and married to Mariah.

In the 1860 census, an Isaac Oaks is still in Greene County, Illinois, in the White Hall precinct, apparently with wife, Elizabeth, and in household with Elizabeth Evans, age 78, Nancy Evans, age 50, and Elizabeth Wilson, age 70. Micheal and Sarah Oaks are in Vermillion County, Illinois.

Labon Oaks, born 1801, is in Hancock, Illinois, in the 1860 census.

There is no Isaac Oaks on the 1870 census that appears to be the same as the Illinois Isaac.

80. Laban Oakes107,108, born Abt. 1763 in Orange County, Virginia109,110. He was the son of 160. James Oakes and 161. ?. He married 81. Susannah McKenney April 04, 1793 in Halifax County, Virginia111,112.
81. Susannah McKenney113,114. She was the daughter of 162. James McKenney.

Notes for Laban Oakes:
James Oakes will gave 25L to Laban, 25L to Hesikiah, $3 to Josiah, and the bulk of his property to the younger son, James, probably by a later marriage. This was in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. Records show Laban buying land from his father in Pittsylvania County. Later records show land bought in Halifax County, Virginia. He married in 1793 in Halifax County and later sold land in Halifax County in 1795. He also sold land on 7/20/1795 in Henry County, Virginia, to Samuel Lane of Dinwiddie County. Witnesses were Archibald Murphy, M. Kelley, and Dutton Lane, a well known Baptist minister (whose wife was Elizabeth Oakes). I can't find any records after this until his son James buys land in Bedford (later Coffee) County, Tennessee in 1830.

Abstracts of Henry County, Virginia Deed Books V & VI:
Pg. 29. (207-208). 20 July 1795 Labon Oakes of Co. of Henry to Samuel Lane of Dinwiddie
Co for sum of 120L sells land on shole banks of the River. Wit: Archibald Murphy, Mason
Kelley, Dutton Lane. S/Labon Oakes. Prov. 26 Oct. 1795. (note: Dutton Lane was Baptist
minister)

The 1790 federal census for Virginia and the area that became Tennessee were lost; however, Laban Oaks was in Virginia after that per marriage and land records.

There is no record of Laban Oaks on the 1800 census; however, the federal census records for Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and other areas were lost.

The 1810 federal census of Tennessee was lost except for Rutherford and part of Grainger counties.

A Laban (Labon) (Ladoc) Oaks was shown on the 1810 Federal Census of Logan County, Kentucky, page 186 and in a Barren County, Kentucky, court record in 1809. This Laban is age 26-44 as is his wife. There are 4 males under age 10 and 1 age 11-15. There are 3 females under age 10, 1 female age 10-15, and 1 female age 16-25. Logan and Barren counties are just above the Tennessee line. This could not be the Laban in Illinois who was born in 1802, but it could be the Laban from Virginia who was born about 1763. The Laban in Illinois could be his son.

I can not find Laban Oaks (Oakes) on the 1820 census.

Laban Oaks, born 1802 in Tennessee, married to Mary Berthena is buried in Friendship Cemetery in McDonough County, Illinois. This Laban is shown on census in the area beginning in 1830 in Pike County, later in Hancock County, and later in McDonough County as late as 1880. An Isaac Oaks was nearby in 1830. Laban and Berthena lived near Charles Washington Parker and wife, Rebecca Oaks Trowell Parker. Mr. Parker's birth was Bedford County, Virginia (same area as the Oaks) in 1811. Rebecca was born in Anderson County, Tennessee, in 1818. They married in Marion County, Tennessee, in 1840.

A Laban Oaks married Sarah Stapp in 8/15/1823 in Jefferson County, Alabama. By age, this could be the same Laban who later appears in Illinois, but I have no other information.

I have been unable to directly connect these three possibly separate Labans to our line.

Marriage Notes for Laban Oakes and Susannah McKenney:
Surety was James McKenney. Susannah signed own consent. Minister was Thomas Dodson.

Child of Laban Oakes and Susannah McKenney is:

161. ?

Notes for James Oakes:
There is no record of James Oakes on the 1790 census or the 1800 census but most of the Virginia records were lost for both censuses.



Children of James Oakes and ? are:
80 i. Laban Oakes, born Abt. 1763 in Orange County, Virginia; married Susannah McKenney April 04, 1793 in Halifax County, Virginia.
ii. Hezekiah Oakes173,174, born Abt. 1765 in Orange County, Virginia175,176; died in Probably Coffee County, Tennessee.

Notes for Hezekiah Oakes:
Hezekiah Oaks was shown in Jackson County, Tennessee, tax rolls in 1802. William Lusk, a neighbor later in Coffee County, Tennessee, and a surety at James Franklin Oaks' marriage in Tishomingo County, was also shown. A William Harp was there also. Hesikiah reappears in Bedford County, Tennessee, (later becomes Coffee County) in 1830 purchasing property.

The 1790 and 1800 federal census records for Virginia and the area that became Tennesse were lost. The 1810 federal census for Tennessee, except for Rutherford and part of Grainger counties, was lost.

I can not find Hesikiah or James Oaks (Oakes) on the 1820 census anywhere.

Hesikiah Oaks appears in the 1830 census of Bedford County, Tennessee, as age 50-60. Also in household are 1 male 15-20, 1 male 5-10, 1 male under 5, 1 female age 40-50, 2 females age 20-30, 2 females age 15-20, 2 females age 5-10, and 2 females under 5. James Oaks is also in Bedford County.

Hesikiah Oakes appears in the 1840 census of Bedford County, Tennessee, as age 70-80. Also in household are a male age 10-15 and females 1 age 60-70, 1 age 20-30, 1 age 15-20, and 1 age 10-15. James Oakes and his family are nearby in Coffee County, Tennessee.

The 1850 census has Hezikiah Oaks age 42 in Whitley County, Kentucky. He shows born in Tennessee. Also in household are wife, Martha, age 36, born in Tennessee. Children are Narcissa, James, William, Elizabeth, Isaac, George, and Lewis. All children show born in Kentucky. Same census has Hezikiah Oaks age 38 in Knox County, Tennessee. He shows born in Tennessee. Also in household are wife, Luiza, age 27. Children are Racheal, William, Jane, Parlena, and Sarelda. All children show born in Tennessee. Next household to them in Knox County is Elizabeth Oaks, age 60, born in Virginia, with Mary Oaks, age 34, and Squire Oaks, age 7. Ages make these clearly not the same Hesikiah Oaks, but either could be a son.

The 1860 census has the same Hezikiah in Whitley County, Kentucky, with additional children, John J. and Harvey. A Hezekiah Oaks, age 19, is shown in Union County, Tennessee, in the household of Jacob Turner, as a laborer. A Hezekiah Oaks, age 40, is shown in Corina, Randolph County, Alabama, with wife, Amanda, and children: Erasmus, Tiritha, and Sarah. This Hezekiah shows birth in Georgia.

By 1737, Charles had surveyed for himself, 400 acres of new land. In July 1736, he was accused of trespassing by a Henry Willis. In September 1736, John Cuddin claimed Charles owed him two pounds for a mare he sold him. Both cases were dismissed. In 1738 he appeared on a delinquent tax list in Orange County.
