      Note:
      Chatham Co., NC Deed Book AU, pages 296-299 shows the following:

      Alvis Oldham and his wife Angelett, George Poe and his wife Emily, David Poe and his wife Belle (?), John W. Petty and wife Mary, Robert Poe and wife Mary Ann, Joseph Poe and wife Martha, Elisha Oldham and wife Martha all of Chatham Co., NC to James W. Poe of same - for $200 (including the balance due by note given to James W Poe by Alvis Oldham) - tract of land adj the lands of Alvis Poe, J.J. Poe, Oran Johnson, Robert ____ and others, known as the Beverly Poe homestead, supposed to contain 100 acres - signed
      Alvis "X" Oldham,
      Anglett "X" Oldham,
      Geo W. Poe,
      Emily M. Poe,
      J.W. Petty,
      Mary L. Petty,
      R.H. Poe,
      Mary A. Poe,
      Elisha "X" Oldham,
      Martha J. Oldham,
      D.W. Poe,
      Belle "X" Poe,
      Joseph W. Poe,
      Martha L. Poe -
      wit R.L. Jenkins

      The 1880 census of Elisha & Martha Oldham shows that Martha was born about 1856, so I don't know how she was connected to Beverly & Delany Poe (I assume she was a grandchild of theirs, who was an only child and who's parents are deceased). All of the children I currently know of are mentioned in this deed except for a Mahala J. Poe born abt 1829. It seems a far stretch that Mahala and Martha are the same person, but I am wondering if Martha was the daughter of Mahala.

      If anyone knows more I would love to fill the gap in. Thanks!

      1850 and 1860 Census listed as farmer
      Census:
      Question? Three dwellings from William & Margaret Oldham, was he a son of theirs (brother to Marshall)?

      1880 Census:
      household includes granddaughter Martha Oldham age 2, not sure who her parent is though

      ---------------------------------

      Addend-Errata (son of William) G3-5. ALVIS OLDHAM b. ca 1821 in North Carolina, married ca 1848 to Angletta ---------, b. ca 1827 North Carolina. A farmer in Chatham Co. (this goes through Headley, Stephens, Lucy A., George P., and James W. )

      SINCE THIS IS AN ERROR IN THE RECORD I DIDN'T CONTINUE COPYING THE RECORD AND SO WE NEED TO ELIMINATE ALVIS FROM THE FAMILY. I WILL PICK UP WITH THE ENTRIES.
      --------------------------------------

      From Patsy Hunsucker (phunsucker@email.msn.com) 9/17/98

      In the "book" genealogy, there was a penciled note as follows:

      Addenda-Errata... Over the entry of Alvis as son of Ephraim: son of William Oldham.

      I don't know who made the correction, but it helps eliminate Alvis from the group as one of Ephraim's children.

      Hello, I'm Dan Oldham. I have in my possession the broken tombstone of Alvis and Angelette Oldham. It was in my grandfather's shop when I cleaned it out after his death. He was Albert Oldham, son of Charles Glen Oldham, and apparently felt it worth saving though broken. Alvis S. Oldham 's dates are Feb. 20, 1816-Jan. 31, 1884. Angelette Oldham's dates are July 8, 1826-Nov.28, 1909. I believe her maiden name was Poe, but can't swear it. I live in Atlanta, but frequently return to North Carolina, from where this tombstone and my family come. I can be reached at dano@speedfactory.net if I can be of help to anyone interested in this.
