Jan,

My name is Jennifer Turner Milo and I am a descendant of William W. Purvis . In the Oldham page, there is a 2nd generation - Winston Purvis with no mention of any brothers and sisters. >From my research, there was at leas t one other brother -- Edward Louis Purvis who was born July 4, 1806, died April 30, 1887 and married Mary Ann Martin on Feb 14, 1839. Mary Ann was born Oct 26, 1810 and died July 16, 1890. >From their union there were other children, etc.

I don't know if you are interested in adding this to the Oldham page. If so, I will be glad to send you any additional generations from Edward Loui s down to my great grandfather George Francis Purvis who married Genevieve Hortense Corinne Browning. Their daughter married a Turner and together they had three children.

Please let me know. My email is jtmilo@earthlink.net and my phone numb er is


Thanks,

Jenny

Comments: Rebecca DeWill Oldham, wife of John Jefferson Oldham, and her daughter Zadie Leota Oldham moved to Randolph County, Arkansas at some date. Zadie was a teacher and she married James William Smith at Maynard, Arkansas in 1902. She did not have any children, but raised Eric Jennings Smith. All indications are that she was an excellent and loving mother to Eric and gave him a very good education for that time. Her mother lived with the Smith family until her death on Jan 22, 1929. Rebecca is buried next to James Smith in the Johnston Cemetery which is located near Reyno, Arkansas.

In 1939, Zadie married a Norm Synder and moved back to IL. I do have a few pictures of Zadie and Rebecca should you have an interest in them. Just let me know how to get them to you. Zadie is the step-grandmother of Shirley Smith Spencer and Winnie Smith Weaver, both are still living. My wife is Paula Spencer Hicks, daughter of Shirley.

OLDHAM, Zera Newton Or Ninevah (I3967)
 
28122 Zera Oldham located in Carroll County some years before the War Between the States, his people having migrated from North Carolina. There were known relatives in the Kosciusko area; and the two family groups continued to "claim kin," though I have never known what the relationship was, or in what generation. Estelle Oldham of the Kosciusko branch married the celebrated William Faulkner of Oxford. The late Dr. Frank Smythe of Memphis told me his mother was of the same branch; so we claimed kin. The Winona branch has produced no famous citizens. There are also Oldhams in Middle Tennessee, who trace their ancestors to North Carolina. Dortch Oldham of Nashville and I were unable to find closer ties than that, although he carries the Oldham nose, a recognizable family mark. So much for the general family background; no systematic genealogical record has come to my notice.

Great-grandfather Zera had two sons: Great-uncle Dan, who went to Texas, and Zera Newton, my grandfather, born August 16, 1845. In 1861, at age sixteen, he enlisted in Zollicoffer's infantry Brigade, CSA. He told me that his outfit engaged in numerous "skirmishes" (he never called them battles) until his captain, somewhere in East Tennessee, gave him and another private verbal furlough (nothing in writing) to return home and put in a crop. On fording a creek, they were taken into custody by two of General Nathan Bedford Forrest's scouts, marched into camp, and given mules to ride. Not only a brilliant tactician, Forrest was also an effective recruiter. Z.N. Oldham was with Forrest on his famous raid of Federal-occupied Memphis, and he finished the War with Forrest.

After being mustered out, "Big Papa" acquired 160 acres in northeastern Carroll County, with a few acres in Montgomery. The location lies between Scotland Baptist Church and Columbiana Methodist on the old county road. There he constructed the standard dogtrot home of the yeoman farmer, with his bedroom in Carroll County, warmed by a fireplace and chimney in Montgomery. Industrious, frugal, and progressive, he developed his acreage. There were fertile fields and pastures, and extensive orchard, and a productive family garden. He also operated a cotton gin and grist mill on the place.

Zera Newton married Mary Margaret Bennett. They were favored with seven sons and one daughter, whom they reared in the conservative Christian ethic of the Victorian Period. From eldest to youngest, they were: Joe, Sim, Will, Lillian, George Daniel ("Gig"), John Bennett ("Captain"), Jesse Walker, and Benjamin (died in infancy.)

Jesse Walter married Hattie Stafford, daughter of John L. and Mary Jane (Davis) Stafford. I was their first child, born August 16, 1909. My sister, Juanita, came December 7, 1911, and died in 1983.

And that is the article in its entirety. No, as far as I know this is not my line. I have information on them because of same surname (Bennett) and location. Possibly, if we get back another generation or two, there will be a connection.

Will let you know when I get the page done. Sure hope this helps!

Finally got "Cher" (Cheryl) Oldham (Orville's oldest daughter) to join our "list". I sent her invite, but she only has computer at work, not at hom e. She's a bit of a "strange bird" but my former sister in law, so we get along gre at. Have invited her down to Palm Springs whenever she can get here, so will t ry to get what info I can from her when she arrives AND make sure she sees our s ite to get her hooked. And she said she would look for pictures & bring them. T hose "bible" pictures actually came from Orville's brother Wilber's wife, (th ey had no children, so Orville's kids were "in the will") and were left to the Oldh am kids (Cheryl, Jenny, Jeff & Scott).

Have you ever had any contact with the gal in Long Beach, CA (re: Cheste r Jackson daughter, I think her name is Ann Cantrell?). I think he had do ne alot of work on the family. Will try to get the creepy ex-husband Jeffrey Micha el Oldham to get in touch with her. By the way, he said he might contact you, so y ou might encourage him to do the contact also. He is in Huntington beach so not t oo far. I keep in touch with him, only because we have common children, Sharon

Individual: Oldham, Joses County/State: Shelby County, Indiana Location: Brandywine Twp Page #: 363 Year: 1850

For the first name in this entry, the person who indexed the record was uncertain about the transcription due to difficulties in deciphering the original records.

Betty Randall Notes: Joses had interest as a partner in the milling business of Barngrover and Judkins, and also owned lots in the town of Fairland, Indiana. Could Joses have lived around Briensburg, Kentucky or some town with a similar name? There is a Briensburg Kentucky but it is near Paducah on Tennessee River in Marshall County, Kentucky. Iona Hayworth remembered hearing of such a place in connection with her grandfather.

There is quoted a will of one Cornelius Dabney, in which he names his son-in-law, Christopher Harris, later of early Madison Co., KY but previously of colonial Albemarle Co., VA and I seem to remember, Louisa Co., VA.


Will of Christopher Harris, dated February 20, 1794; Probated March
4, 1794

"In the name of God, Amen. I Christopher Harris being through the
abundant mercy and goodness of God, tho weak in body, yet of perfect
understanding and memory, do constitute this my last will and
testament, and desire it should be received by all as such.

Imprimis: That I will and desire that my first children, viz: Dabney
Harris, Sarah Martin, Robert Harris, Mourning Jones, Christopher
Harris and Mary Jones should have the following negroes, (excepting
thirty pounds out of my son, Dabney's legacy, which is to be paid by
the executors of this part of my will for the use and benefit of my
wife, and other children) viz: Ritter and her children, Pomp, Moses,
Alice, George, Betty, Lucy and Deephy, the above negroes, to be
divided agreeable to Cornelius Dabney, Sr. I will and I do appoint
Foster Jones and Christopher Harris as executors of the above part of
this will, and as to the balance of my estate, I direct that just my

The house where I live I direct shall be furnished, which together
with the tract of land whereon I live, I leave to my dear and loving
wife during her life and at her death to my son Overton Harris.

As to the balance of my negroes, David, Cato, Fanny, Stephen and
Eady, together with my house hold furniture, stock of every kind and
plantation utensils I desire that my wife may have the whole benefit
of them during her life or widow-hood, and if she should marry the

Albemarle County, together with the stock that is thereon, I direct
shall be sold, and that my sons James and Samuel Harris, shall
receive of the money as much as Colonel John Miller and Robert Rodes
shall judge the land to be worth that I willed to my other sons, viz:
to be made equal to them.

As to my three daughters, viz: Jane Gentry, Margaret Harris and
Isabel Harris, my will and desire is that Jane Gentry should receive
ten pounds, and Margaret and Isabel Harris to have fifty pounds
apiece out of the balance of what my Albemarle land, and the profits
arising from that place, and if that should not be sufficient that it
sahll be made up to them out of any personal estate that my wife and
executors after mentioned shall thingk best.

As to my lands on Licking waters my will is that if they are obtained
it should be sold and equally divided amongst my last set of children.

And I do appoint my dear and loving wife, with John Sappington, and
John Harris to execute that part of my will that respects my wife and
her children. As witness my hand and seal this twentieth day of
Frbruary, one thousand and seven hundred and ninety four.
Christopher Harris (seal)
Witness: Hartly Sappington, Richard Sappington, Joseph Wells

At a Court held for Madison County on Tuesday, the 4th day of March
1794, this will was proved to be the last will and testament of
Christopher Harris, by the oath of Joseph Wells, Hartly and Richard
Sappington,witnesses thereto,and ordered to be recorded.
Test, Will Irvine.

Tuesday, March 04, 1794.
On motion of Foster Jones, Christopher Harris Jr., Agnes Harris, John
Sappington and John Harris the executors therein named, a certificate
is granted them for obtaining a probate thereof in due form, they
having first made oath, and together with John Miller, James Berry,
Willliam Jones, William Irvine and Joseph Pelpithier securities,
entered into and acknowledged their bond in the penalty of two
thousand pounds, conditioned as the law directs."
********************************

In the will which speaks for itself he styles the children by his
first wife, his "first children," and those by his last wife
his "last set of children," and refers to the will of Cornelius
Dabney, Sr. (father of his first wife ?) He appoints Foster Jones and
Christopher Harris (his son-in-law, and son) executors of the first
part of his will applying to his first children and his wife (Agnes)
and John Sappington and John Harris (his son) executors of the part
applying to his last wife and her children.

There has been quite a bit of discussion concerning this branch of
the Harris family, so I thought that I would post the will of
Christopher Harris. Hope this helps someone.

Jan, sometimes I think I'm smarter than I am. I omitted my foster grandparents when I sent this file earlier. Hope it didn't cause you any extra effort. Are you familiar with this site? Is there any coordination between your OLDHAM site andsehis Ohio County Kentucky site? I find many problems with this site info but have also gained much info from it. For instance, It says that my grandmother's grandfather, Burgess FAUGHT, is the illegitimate son of a FAUGHT daughter and Lorenzo EARP. Lorenzo is Wyatt EARP's uncle. Two of Wyatt's older brothers were born in Hartford, Ohio Co., KY. Unimportant but interesting. http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=2006-ohio-co-ky Thnks again, 
FAUGHT, Uva Bell (I39337)
