      Red River Settlers - pg 32

      The court of June 1809 for Montgomery (formerly Tennessee) County described the road leading to Nashville road on the south side of Red River near where McCade's road turns off thence the most direct way to Hornbergers old fork across Red River, thence up Jedediah Hall's lane with Watkins and Nelson line to Port Royal road, to and down said road fronting Watkins House, thence the best and most direct way to White's Mill on Spring Creek and ordered that Bright Herring, William White, John Davies, Thomas Dunbar, Moses Oldham, Daniel Taylor, Isaac Peterson, James Bailey, John Henderson, Jedediah Hall, and James Lester be a jury to view the same road.

      The road from Clarksville to Wine Miller's old place on the Nashville Road was to be placed under the overseeing of Henry Smth. Moses Oldham, Sr. was named overseer for the road from Clarksville to the first fork on the Road beyond Farrier's ferry.

      **********************************

      The names of the children seem to be confirmed by this power of attorney filed in Caswell Co., NC:

      Deed Bk Q-95-96: Power of attorney Moses Oldham of Montgomery Co ., TN, husband of Mary [Rice?] Oldham decd sister of John Rice decd late of TN; George Oldham, Jesse Oldham*, Moses Oldham, Joel Oldham, Sally (Sarah) Bennett and Masonrr husband Abram Brantley; Conaway Oldham and Elisha Oldham by their father Moses Oldham - to trusty friend Solomon Debow of Caswell Co. to make choice of parcels of land in TN devised them by last will of John Rice decd containing 5000 A by will to be equally divided between his executors and his brothers, to sue for or to compromise. 9 Nov 1805. Wit: Rol and Peterson, Peter Powel, H. Harelson.

      (Katherine Kerr Kendall, CASWELL COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA DEED BOOKS 1777-1 817 [Easley, SC: Southern Historical Press, 1989]) Apparently, after executing the above power of attorney in Nov 1805, Moses Oldham removed from Montgomery Co. Tennessee to Montgomery Co., Kentucky. See deed of gift cited below.

      In Montgomery Co., TN, in December 1805, there is a document (deed of gift) which specifies that Moses Oldham is of Montgomery Co., Kentucky, not Tennessee:

      Montgomery Co., TN Will Book A, page 197:

      Deed of Gift from Moses Oldham, Sr. to the heirs of James Doherty I, Moses Oldham, Sr., of Montgomery County, Kentucky, give unto Polley, John and all the heirs of James Doherty and Susanna, his wife, by them lawfully born, one negro girl named Seley to be the lawfull property of the mentioned heirs. Given under my hand this 7th day of December 1805. Moses Oldham

      (Laura Willis, MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TENN. DEEDS VOL. TWO, 1797-1804 [Melbe r, KY: Simmons Historical Publications, 1996], p. 80)

      Question: Had Moses Oldham married the widow of James Doherty and thus had custody of the "negro girl named Seley"? More research is needed.

      Tax list of Madison Co., KY for 1799 indicates that a Moses Oldham paid taxes in that KY county for that year. Montgomery Co. KY is one county over (not adjacent to) from Madison Co.

      Earlier Records of Moses Oldham

      In Caswell Co., NC, Moses and his father Richard Oldham Sr. had lived in the same neighborhood, along Stoney Creek, Caswell Co. Reference should be made to land grants made in Orange Co., NC, the parent county of Caswell.

      A linkage of the younger Moses with other Oldhams of North Carolina is loosely defined in this Caswell Co., NC deed, but the abstract is unclear how these Oldhams, except Moses's sons Conaway and Elisha Oldham, are related to each otherrification. His deceased wife was Mary Oldham nee Rice, sister of John Rice, deceased, late of Tennessee. Apparently the other persons named are the children of Moses and Mary (Rice) Oldham (not proved).


      (Comment: Merrill Hill Mosher in RICE PUDDING A LA CASWELL: RESEAR CH NOTES ON ICE, RICHMOND AND ALLIED FAMILIES OF CASWELL CO., NC [Coos Ba y, OR: Published by author, rev ed 1979] writes that Mary Rice was a daughter of Thomas Riceers are usually designated with this Thomas Rice, but the meaning is unknown to her. "Other children: Elisha m. 1791 Ann Collier; Joel m. 1793 Mary Eliz. Pryor Hickman, d. 183 3, Ala; William Higgison see separate sketch; Rebecca m. John Windsor; S arah m. Hugh Gwynn; Marcy m. Francis Nunn; Lucy m1 John Debow m2 John Scoby; Nathan m. Sally (Williamson?) and died in 1802 see separate sketch; Mary m. Moses Oldham; John d. Tenn. 1792 unmarried.

      In a typescript booklet, Nancy R. Roy, THE PHELPS FAMILY OF VIRGINIA AND KENTUCKY AND ALLIED FAMILIES [ca 1960: LaMesa, CA], a Moses Oldham, who reportedly married a Mary Rice, is said to be a brother of Jesse Oldham.

      However, the parentage given for these several brothers (Jesse, George, Moses, Conway, James, Richard, John, and William) is incorrect. The will of Edmund Basye II (Jr.) (qv) indicates Elizabeth Basye is wife of Richard Oldham, but the:cm? To date, no records of a Richard Oldham of the proper time period have been located in Virginia. Where was he?.

      In Caswell Co., Moses received a State of NC grant of land (Caswell Co. DB A-447), No. 231, 17 Dec 1779. It was for 640 A. on Stoney Cr adj William Mitchell, David Hart, claim of George Sims, McKonke

      Reference is made in Caswell Co. NC DB F-173 to the property of Moses Oldham which was near the Haw River and Stoney Creek. The deed dated 6 Apr 1789 was from William Swift to Anthony Swift; it was witnessed by Tyree Harris and Wm Swif



      (Kendall, CASWELL COUNTY DEEDS)

      The entry appears earlier in Land Entries, Caswell Co., NC. The wording is slightly different: [same entry number] Moses Oldham enters 640 Acres of Land lying on the waters of Stony Creek, Including the Improvements he lives on, Runni
      m Compt [compliment]. 26 May 177

      (FHL film 18416 Caswell Co., NC Land Entries. Refer to biography of George Oldham for other Oldhams who entered land on the same date, as well as some allied families.)

      (Comment: According to NSDAR guidelines for eligibility, residents of NC during the Revolution had to take an oath of allegiance to receive a grant of land, and, therefore, their direct descendants are eligible for membership in DAR.e iven to any person who entered a claim for a Land Grant between 1 January 1778 and 26 November 1783... [The law of the time is quoted.]")

      Moses received a subsequent grant: DB B-61 - State of NC - No. 360 - to Moses Oldham 250 A on Stoney Cr adj his former corner, Md Hensley. 29 Oct 1782. (Kendall, op. cit.)

      One of Moses Oldham's neighbors was David Hart, one of the proprietors of Transylvania Company, headed by Col. Richard Henderson. Another proprietor was Nathaniel Hart, whose wife was a sister of the wife of Jesse Oldham, Elizabeth ""ryss and STATE PAPERS OF NORTH CAROLINA for information on activities of Richard Henderson, who headed the Transylvania Company.

      Moses Oldham appeared on the 1777 Caswell Co., NC tax list: Moses Oldham 377-4-6 [?]. He also appeared on the 1784 and 1786 tax list, St. David's District. On the 1784 tax list, St. David's District, Caswell Co ., he is assessed foy.

      In 1789, Oldham sold part of his property:

      DB G-9-10: Moses Oldham of Caswell County to Thomas Foster of same, for 75 pounds, 250 A on Stoney Cr adj Maxfield Henslee being land Oldham purchased of State. 13 Apr 1789. Wit: John Henslee, Stephen Sawyer. (Ibid.)

      In 1791, he sold other property, perhaps in preparation for leaving the county:

      DB H-170-171: Moses Oldham of Caswell County to Daniel Burford for 300 pounds, 640 A on Stoney Cr adj William Mitchell, David Hart, Geor ge Sims, Mc Henslee. 13 Aug 1791. Wit: John Henslee, Thomas Poston [ or Lofton]. (Ibid.)

      The land of Moses Oldham was still being referred to in Oct 1795 ( DB J-52); therefore, he may not yet have removed to Tennessee.

      Another Moses Oldham?

      The Moses Oldham of Northumberland Co., VA (Northern Neck) may not be the same Moses Oldham who died in North Carolina.

      We find some evidence, besides land records, of Oldhams in Southside Virginia. The relationship of the Oldhams of Northern Neck Virginia to those of Caswell Co., NC is unknown.

      MOSES OLDHAM. Moses Oldham is one of the brothers of Jesse Oldh [Sr], (died 1814), of Caswell Co., NC and later of Madison Co., KY. Moses was of Montgomery Co., TN. Moses Oldham of Tennessee was probably named for an earlier Northumberland Co., VA antecedent.

      According to some NSDAR records, Moses Oldham, Sr. was born about 1750, Fauquier Co., VA, died after 1810, Montgomery Co., TN. He married ( 1) Mary Rice, in NC. She was the mother of his children. She died before 1804 in Caswell Co.,.saied (2nd) after 1804 in Montgomery Co., TN M rs. Nancy Freeman. (Note: Fauquier Co. was not formed until 1759. The parent county was Prince William Co., and some of the records are missing.)

      (See Installment Two) Continuation of notes on Moses Oldham

      In a typescript booklet, Nancy R. Roy, THE PHELPS FAMILY OF VIRGIN IA AND KENTUCKY AND ALLIED FAMILIES [ca 1960: LaMesa, CA], a Moses Oldha m, who reportedly married a Mary Rice, is said to be a brother of Jesse Oldham.

      However, the parentage given for these several brothers (Jesse, George, Moses, Conway, James, Richard, John, and William) is incorrect. The will of Edmund Basye II (Jr.) (qv) indicates Elizabeth Basye is wife of Richard Oldham. Theren this list of linked Oldha ms, put forth by Nancy R. Roy. For example, it seems Conway Oldham, as indicated by the power of attorney of Moses Oldham, is his son--not his brother.

      In Caswell Co., Moses received a State of NC grant of land (Caswe ll Co. DB A-447), No. 231, 17 Dec 1779. It was for 640 A. on Stoney Cr adj William Mitchell, David Hart, claim of George Sims, McKonkey.

      Reference is made in Caswell Co. NC DB F-173 to the property of Moses Oldham which was near the Haw River and Stoney Creek. The deed dated 6 Apr 1789 was from William Swift to Anthony Swift; it was witnessed by Tyree Harris and Wm S

      The entry appears earlier in Land Entries, Caswell Co., NC. The word ing is slightly different: [same entry number] Moses Oldham enters 640 Acres of Land lying on the waters of Stony Creek, Including the Improvements he lives on, Ru.6 May 1778.

      (SL film 18416 Caswell Co., NC Land Entries. Refer to biograp George Oldham for other Oldhams who entered land on the same date, as well as some allied families.)

      (Comment: According to NSDAR guidelines for eligibility, residents of NC during the Revolution had to take an oath of allegiance to receive a grant of land, and, therefore, their direct descendants are eligible for membership in DAR.ns given to any person who entered a claim for a Land Grant between 1 January 1778 and 26 November 1783...

      Moses received a subsequent grant: DB B-61 - State of NC - No. 360 - to Moses Oldham 250 A on Stoney Cr adj his former corner, Md Hensley. 29 Oct 1782. (Kendall, op. cit.)

      One of Moses Oldham's neighbors was David Hart, one of the proprietors of Transylvania Company, headed by Col. Richard Henderson (qv). Another proprietor was Nathaniel Hart, whose wife was a sister of the wife of Jesse Oldham, Elih "Br.per Mss and STATE PAPERS OF NORTH CAROLINA for information on activities of Richard Henderson, who headed the Transylvania Company.

Ranck and which appears in the online Heritage Quest genealogical database, available through many public libraries by subscription.

      Moses Oldham appeared on the 1777 Caswell Co., NC tax list: Moses Oldham 377-4-6 [?]. He also appeared on the 1784 and 1786 tax list, S t. David's District. On the 1784 tax list, St. David's District, Caswell Co ., he is assessed f0n

      In 1789, Oldham sold part of his property:

      In 1791, he sold other property, perhaps in preparation for leaving the county:

      The land of Moses Oldham was still being referred to in Oct 1795 ( DB J-52); therefore, he may not yet have removed to Tennessee.

      To repeat, the names of the surviving children of Moses Oldham and his wife Mary nee Rice, deceased, are given in this abstract of a power of attorney:

Wit: Roland Peterson, Peter Powel, H. Harelson. (Ibid.)


      The persons with the surname Oldham and the females with married names m ay have been the progeny of the first marriage of Moses Oldham to Mary Rice (deceased by 1804). See biography of Mary's father Thomas Rice, Esq. f or mention in his 180
      4 will of Mary's children, whom he did not list. In the pow er of attorney, Moses seemed to be suing the estate of John Rice, deceased, Mary 's brother, on behalf of Oldham's children's share of 5,000 acres.


      Another Moses Oldham of Earlier Date?

      The Moses Oldham of Northumberland Co., VA (Northern Neck) may not be the same Moses Oldham who died in North Carolina.

      We find some evidence, besides land records, of Oldhams in Southside Virginia. The relationship of the Oldhams of Northern Neck Virginia to those of Caswell Co., NC is unknown.

      Married Mary Rice, a sister of John Rice, who died in Caswell County, North Carolina in 1804 and by his will devised property in Tennessee to his children then living in Montgomery County, Tennessee. He served as a soldier in the Revolutionary army and made claim to the United States Congress for said service. He and several of his brothers emigrated from Fauquier County, VA prior to the Revolutionary war, to Caswell County, North Carolina where he was married to Mary Rice, a sister to John Rice who died in Caswell County about the year 1804. Moses Oldham was then living in Montgomery County, TN and was living there as late as 1810.

      Moses Oldham went to the new country of Tennessee from NC. he and his sons and Negroes went out a long way from the settlements into the cane brakes and located and began clearing up a farm.

      subject: Some Notes on Moses Oldham of colonial North Carolina

      Here are some notes I have collected over the years. If you feel like editing them, then use the notes as you wish. I strongly suspect that Jesse Oldham, Moses's brother, was of the area around Fauquier Co., VA, perhaps Prince William Co. or Stafford Co., where MANY of the records have been destroyed. Or, maybe Culpeper Co.

      MOSES OLDHAM. WIR00996. Moses Oldham is one of the brothers of Jesse Oldham [Sr], (died 1814), of Caswell Co., NC and later of Madison Co., KY.

      One Moses Oldham was of Montgomery Co., TN. Moses Oldham of Tennessee was probably named for a Northumberland Co., VA antecedent. Refer to biography of the older Moses Oldham.

      According to some NSDAR records, Moses Oldham, Sr. was born about 1750, Fauquier Co., VA, died after 1810, Montgomery Co., TN. He married (1) Mary Rice, in NC. She was the mother of his children. She died before 1804 in Caswell Co., NC) after 1804 in Montgomery Co., TN Mrs. Nancy Freeman. (Note: Fauquier Co. was not formed until 1759. The parent county was Prince William Co., and some of the records are missing.)

      The children of one Moses Oldham of Kentucky are listed in W. H. Miller's HISTORIES AND GENEALOGIES, were:

      George, Jessee, Moses [b. 1777], Joel [m. 2nd Christiana Tarpley], Sallie, m. Mason Bennett; Liddy [m. Abraham Branthy], Conway, Elisha.

      (There are a good many errors in Miller's work, particularly concerning the various Oldham families of Kentucky. Based on preliminary research, we believe Miller, the compiler, mixed up families of Madison Co., KY with those of early Jeffer,. A living descendant of the Oldhams of Louisville, KY and environs maintains that those Oldhams of Jefferson Co. KY came directly to Kentucky from Virginia. The Oldham families of Caswell Co., NC 1777 to about 1796 probably came from the area around Fauquier Co., VA--not proved--to Orange Co., NC, part of which became Caswell Co. NC in 1777. There are many deed entries in Caswell Co. to give good identification for the Oldhams--and their associates--in that part of North Carolina, many of whom later migrated to Madison Co., KY after the American Revolution.

      This is a reference to a Moses Oldham of North Carolina: This needs to be confirmed as of July 2011.

      Moses military service: Soldier, NC Rev. Army. Proved by cert. of payment to Matthew Jones for clothing furnished Moses Oldham. Ref. Rev. Army Acct. ACC of Com. Office War of Rev. 1777-1783, Book D., p. 53; from NC.

      (Texas Soc of NSDAR, THE ROSTER OF TEXAS DAUGHTERS REVOLUTIONARY ANCESTORS, Texas: 1976, p. 1607)

      The names of the children seem to be confirmed by this power of attorney filed in Caswell Co., NC; the listed children seem to have given power of attorney to their father, Moses Oldham. This abstract is not absolutely clear.:

      Deed Bk Q-95-96: Power of attorney Moses Oldham of Montgomery Co., TN, husband of Mary [Rice?] Oldham decd sister of John Rice decd late of TN; George Oldham, Jesse Oldham*, Moses Oldham, Joel Oldham, Sally (Sarah) Bennett and Mason Bennett her husband, Liddy Brantley and her husband Abram Brantley; Conaway Oldham and Elisha Oldham by their father Moses Oldham - to trusty friend Solomon Debow of Caswell Co. to make choice of parcels of land in TN devised them by last will of John Rice decd containing 5000 A by will to be equally divided between his executors and his brothers, to sue for or to compromise. 9 Nov 1805. Wit: Roland Peterson, Peter Powel, H. Harelson.

      (Katherine Kerr Kendall, CASWELL COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA DEED BOOKS 1777-1817 [Easley, SC: Southern Historical Press, 1989] p. 200)

      Moses Oldham and his reported father Richard Oldham Sr. had lived in the same neighborhood, along Stoney Creek, Caswell Co. Reference should be made to land grants made in Orange Co., NC, the parent county of Caswell.

      A linkage of the younger Moses with other Oldhams of North Carolina is loosely defined in this Caswell Co., NC deed, but the abstract is unclear how these Oldhams, except Moses's sons Conaway and Elisha Oldham, are related to each other.ldamined for clarification. The deceased wife of Moses Oldham was Mary Oldham nee Rice, sister of John Rice, deceased, late of Tennessee. Apparently the other persons named are the children of Moses and Mary (Rice) Oldham (not proved).


      (Comment: Merrill Hill Mosher in RICE PUDDING A LA CASWELL: RESEARCH NOTES ON ICE, RICHMOND AND ALLIED FAMILIES OF CASWELL CO., NC [Coos Bay, OR: Published by author, rev ed 1979] writes that Mary Rice was a daughter of Thomas Rice (C.B.e
      er states that these letters are usually designated with this Thomas Rice, but the meaning is unknown to her. "Other children: Elisha m. 1791 Ann Collier; Joel m. 1793 Mary Eliz. Pryor Hickman, d. 1833, Ala; William Higgison see separate sketch; Rebecca m. John Windsor; Sarah m. Hugh Gwynn; Marcy m. Francis Nunn; Lucy m1 John Debow m2 John Scoby; Nathan m. Sally (Williamson?) and died in 1802 see separate sketch; Mary m. Moses Oldham; John d. Tenn. 1792 unmarried." This information should be checked against original records, or at least abstracts of same.)

      In a typescript booklet, Nancy R. Roy, THE PHELPS FAMILY OF VIRGINIA AND KENTUCKY AND ALLIED FAMILIES [ca 1960: LaMesa, CA], a Moses Oldham, who reportedly married a Mary Rice, is said to be a brother of Jesse Oldham.

      However, the parentage given for these several brothers (Jesse, George, Moses, Conway, James, Richard, John, and William) is seemingly incorrect. The will of Edmund Basye II (Jr.) (qv) indicates Elizabeth Basye is wife of Richard Oldham. Tst call into question this list of linked Oldhams, put forth by Nancy R. Roy. For example, it seems Conway Oldham, as indicated by the power of attorney of Moses Oldham, cited above, is his son--not his brother.

      In Caswell Co., Moses received a State of NC grant of land (Caswell Co. DB A-447), No. 231, 17 Dec 1779. It was for 640 A. on Stoney Cr adj William Mitchell, David Hart, claim of George Sims, McKonkey. (Kendall, Deeds, p. 25).

      Also on Stoney Creek was Henry Williams (qv) and John Hensely, Maxfield Hensley or Hinsley, Thomas Hart's old line. The Caswell Co. deed book A -251 summarizing the patent of State of North Carolina No. 81 mentions "an agreement line line between Hensley & Moses Oldham, claim by Spencer." It was dated 3 Mar 1779. (Kendall, Deeds, page 15)

      Deed Bk B, p 61 State of NC - No. 320 - to Moses Oldham 250 A on Stoney Cr adj his former corner Md Hensley. 29 Oct 1782. (Kendall, Deeds, p. 40)

      Reference is made in Caswell Co. NC DB F-173 to the property of Moses Oldham which was near the Haw River and Stoney Creek. The deed dated 6 Apr 1789 was from William Swift to Anthony Swift; it was witnessed by Tyree Harris and Wm Swift.

      (Kendall, CASWELL COUNTY DEEDS)

      The entry appears earlier in Land Entries, Caswell Co., NC. The wording is slightly different: [same entry number] Moses Oldham enters 640 Acres of Land lying on the waters of Stony Creek, Including the Improvements he lives on, Runningmtment]. 26 May 1778.

      (FHL film 18416 Caswell Co., NC Land Entries. Refer to biography of George Oldham for other Oldhams who entered land on the same date, as well as some allied families.)

      (Comment: According to NSDAR guidelines for eligibility, residents of NC during the Revolution had to take an oath of allegiance to receive a grant of land, and, therefore, their direct descendants are eligible for membership in DAR. "Antc Service is given to any person who entered a claim for a Land Grant between 1 January 1778 and 26 November 1783... [The law of the time is quoted.]")

      Moses received a subsequent grant: DB B-61 - State of NC - No. 360 - to Moses Oldham 250 A on Stoney Cr adj his former corner, Md Hensley. 29 Oct 1782. (Kendall, op. cit.)

      One of Moses Oldham's neighbors was David Hart, one of the proprietors of Transylvania Company, headed by Col. Richard Henderson (qv). Another proprietor was Nathaniel Hart, whose wife was a sister of the wife of Jesse Oldham, Elizabeth.r to Lyman C. Draper Mss and STATE and COLONIAL PAPERS OF NORTH CAROLINA for information on activities of Richard Henderson, who headed the Transylvania Company. Also to the Filson Club publication called Boonesborough by George W. Ranck and which appears in the online HeritageQuest genealogical database, available through many public libraries by subscription.

      Moses Oldham appeared on the 1777 Caswell Co., NC tax list: Moses Oldham 377-4-6 [?]. He also appeared on the 1784 and 1786 tax list, St. David's District. On the 1784 tax list, St. David's District, Caswell Co., he is assessed for 890n

      In 1789, Oldham sold part of his property:

      DB G-9-10: Moses Oldham of Caswell County to Thomas Foster of same, for 75 pounds, 250 A on Stoney Cr adj Maxfield Henslee being land Oldham purchased of State. 13 Apr 1789. Wit: John Henslee, Stephen Sawyer. (Ibid.)

      In 1791, he sold other property, perhaps in preparation for leaving the county:

      DB H-170-171: Moses Oldham of Caswell County to Daniel Burford for 300 pounds, 640 A on Stoney Cr adj William Mitchell, David Hart, George Sims, Mc Henslee. 13 Aug 1791. Wit: John Henslee, Thomas Poston [or Lofton]. (Ibid.)

      The land of Moses Oldham was still being referred to in Oct 1795 (DB J-52); therefore, he may not yet have removed to Tennessee.

      To repeat, the names of the surviving chldren of Moses Oldham and his wife Mary nee Rice, deceased, are given in this abstract of a power of attorney:

      The following is found in Caswell Co., NC Deed Bk Q-95-96: Power of attorney - Moses Oldham of Montgomery Co., TN, husband of Mary Oldham decd sister of John Rice decd late of TN; George Oldham, Jesse Oldham, Moses Oldham, Joel Oldham, Sa)nd Mason Bennett her husband, Liddy Brantley and her husband Abram Brantley; Conaway Oldham and Elisha Oldham by their father Moses Oldham - to trusty friend Solomon Debow of Caswell Co. to make choice of parcels of land in TN devised then by last will of John Rice decd containing 5000 A by will to be equally divided between his executors and his brothers, to sue for or to compromise. 9 Nov 1805. Wit: Roland Peterson, Peter Powel, H. Harelson. (Ibid.)

      The persons with the surname Oldham and the females with married names may have been the progeny of the first marriage of Moses Oldham to Mary Rice (deceased by 1804). See biography of Mary's father Thomas Rice, Esq. for mention in his 1fsdren, whom he did not list. In the power of attorney, Moses seemed to be suing the estate of John Rice, deceased, Mary's brother, on behalf of Oldham's children's share of 5,000 acres.


      Another Moses Oldham of Earlier Date?

      The Moses Oldham of Northumberland Co., VA (Northern Neck) may not be the same Moses Oldham who died in North Carolina.

      We find some evidence, besides land records, of Oldhams in Southside Virginia. The relationship of the Oldhams of Northern Neck Virginia to those of Caswell Co., NC is unknown.

      Henry Williams and Priscilla Oldham m. 22 Jan 1729/30 NFPR [North Farnham Parish?] (The bride was widow of William Oldham., p. 150)

      (MARRIAGES OF RICHMOND CO, VA.....),

      Please share additions and corrections, as no family history is ever complete. Tennessee did not become a State until 1796. Earlier records may be found in North Carolina. I am told that the University of North Carolina has digitized the many volumes of State and Colonial Records of North Carolina. Use google.com to search. As I remember, each volume has a date on it. I have used hard copies of the colonial records and have found some personal letters in there concerning persons I study both in Granville Co. NC and later in Boonesborough, now in Kentucky, but earlier of Virginia.

      Good luck.
