      Estate of George W. Oldham, administered by Thomas J. Oldham. No will included in the estate paperwork. Died Intestate

      Macon Co. Times Newspaper article: George W. Oldham came to Smith County, Tennessee from Virginia about October or November 1805. They arrived on Peyton's Creek in Smith County and settled at the present Herbert Sloan place about three miles north of Monoville and two miles south of Pleasant Shade. When they arrived in Tennessee, their second child, Polly Ann, was about nine months old. We are sorry that we do not know who the oldest child was, but suppose it was a daughter, Judy, who later married Nelson Davis.

      Dempsey and Moses Odum also lived in Smith County, Tennessee

      * Cal's Column *
      " Ordered that Joseph Shaw be Overseer of the road from Oldham's Cabbins (Cabins) to the Indian Boundary, and that the same hands living between said Cabbins and the Indian line work under him." We are not quite certain as to where Oldhams wethe Indian Boundary lay to the east of Smith County and formed perhaps a part of the boundary of the county. We would judge that this Oldham family was the first of the name in Smith County, and there is some indication that Oldham's Cabins were on Snow Creek, just above the present Elmwood. We hope to have more information on this branch of the Oldham family.

      We have some information on the George Oldham branch, came from Virginia in 1805 and settled at the present Herbert Sloan place on Peyton's Creek. The family is of English origin and the name came from the earlier spelling of " Old Home,d to Oldham, as it is now spelled.

      George Oldham came out of Virginia in October or November, 1805, with his wife and two children, the younger of whom, a daughter, Polly Ann, was only nine months of age. Mrs. Oldham was a Miss Sutherland prior to her marriage. She had adaao have been the ancestor of all the members of that family still living in North Middle Tennessee.

      I am looking for any information on George Oldham born before 1783 and was married to Celia Jane Sutherland born before 1784.

      I have alot of information that can be added. What is the best way to send it to you. I put my Genealogy Page on my registration. Maybe you can update this website with that info? I need to buy the Family Tree Maker software again. Only records I have now are on the webpage. I hope that the new software will let me "download" into the software so I can update everything. Do you happen to know if I can do this or not? I don't want to start all over!
