Wow what a coincidence! I am surfing looking for my great grandmother whose name was Julia (America) petrey. My great grandfathers name was Joseph Oakes. The infomation I have is that America as they called her, was born July 18, 1890 at Crab Orchard, Ky. My mother is Violet (Oakes) Swaffar from Oklahoma. I have lots of information about the Oakes side but almost nothing about America except that she was a full blood Indian and couldn't speak english.
I would love to swap information- maybe the same person.

Janet, I have America Petrey Oaks' death certificate. She was born 24 March 1820 and died 23 May 1930. Female, White, Widow. (not Indian or Other) Father is listed as Thomas Petrey, mother is listed as Nancy (looks like Joury, Jonry, Young, bad handwriting.) But records show Thomas married Nancy Young in Tenn. America married Josiah Oaks- s/o Adam Oaks & Jemima Bolton. America would be too old to be the Julia America you are searching. I have no information for a Joseph Oakes. But children of Josiah and America did go to Stroud, Stroud Co. Oklahoma. Do you have any Dishon, Turnbull or Lay surnames in your files?
I do have a Julia Ann Oaks d/o James Oaks & 1st wife Malinda Wardlow. Julie Ann Oaks married my Great-great grandfather John Andrew James. James Oaks md 2nd to Martha (Clark or Catherine) Petrey. d/o Isaac Petrey & Matilda Adkins. I believe James Oaks & Martha C Petrey family went to Howell Co. Missouri and are buried there in Oak Grove Cemetery

Hi
Very interested in your posting. Josiah Oaks, born 6 Mar 1845 to Adam and Jemima Bolton Oaks, is a brother of my great grandfather, James Franklin Oaks. I have Josiah married America Petrey, born 24 May 1850 Ky, on 3 May 1868 in Lincoln County, KY. I show John Edward Oaks, the youngest son of their 12 children was born 18 Jul 1890 in KY and died Jun 1949 in Oklahoma City. I show he married Nettie Griffin, but I have no information for Nettie. I show Josiah Oaks died 1922 and America died 1930, both died in Lincoln County, KY and both are buried in Ephesus Cemetery in that county. I would appreciate any information that you would provide for my family history. I have a rather extensive file for my Oaks line, and will try to provide as you request..

Hi
Great to hear from you. Nettie Griffin was my grandmother.She was married to John Edward Oakes, son of Josiah Oakes and America Petrey. Nettie was born 6-18-1892 and died 12-8-1979. She is buried in the Stroud Oklahoma cemetery aong with John. I don't have very much information on Nettie's side either. John was married prior to Nettie to Deliliah Anderson. Deliliah was married previously to J.L. Anderson and all the information I can get is about 3 children. There was a Zola who married a Hubbard who was a Baptist minister and they lived in Crab Orchard and Broughton-town community, then moved to Tenn. before she died. Another child was Hazel Reynolds of Stanford? The last child was named Tessie - don't know anything about her.
I have just started researaching this side so any help would be appreciated. I also would love to have any information you have on the Oakes side.
