      Jackson H. Oldham Sr. is the youngest son of Tyree and Nancy Oldham of Pendleton County, Kentucky. Tyree was a son of Jesse Oldham (son of Richard Oldham and Elizabeth Bayse) and Elizabeth Simpson of Madison County, Kentucky.

      Jesse and Tyree are listed at Fort Boonesboro with Daniel Boone's original settlers to that area. Jesse and Tyree were with Daniel Boone when Indians attacked Fort Boonesboro in 1775. Jesse is also known as growing the first "recorded" corn crop in the state of Kentucky as found in court records in Madison County, Kentucky. Jackson was raised on the Oldham plantation at Falmouth, Kentucky, which was once a 1000 acre tract that was purchased by Tyree Oldham in 1816 from Henry Clay. Tyree built a stately Virginia style brick home across the river in Shoemakertown about 1825. The plantation had 22 slaves at one time as recorded in the Falmouth courthouse records. The family also ran the Oldham Ferry and the Gist Mill on the Licking River at Falmouth. The home was just torn down in the fall of 1996 because of flooding.

      Jackson married an Elizabeth Watson (daughter of Joseph Watson) in Kentucky and had four children: James M. born 1839, Anna O. born 1841, William born 1844, and George Samuel Oldham born 1 Feb 1845 died in 1878 in Pendleton Co, Kentucky. Elizabeth died in 1845 in Pendleton County, Kentucky. George stayed in Kentucky with his mother's people. It is through George's descendants, in a deposition, we learn who Jackson's father actually was. Jackson moved to Lawrence County, Arkansas, where his brother William had moved (thought by some to be his father, but most likely raised by William after his mothers death). Then married Sarah Ann McCarroll (daughter of James McCarroll and Mary Beasley) on 22 Jun 1846 in Lynn, Lawrence, Arkansas. They had the following children: Mary born 1847 died 1860; Thomas N. born 1849 died 1870; Jackson Henderson Jr. born 8 May 1850 died 1911; Martha J. born 1853 died 1887; Sarah "Emma" born 1855 died 1922; Henry Clay born 1856 died 1928 (married Sarah Mahala Ketner); and Ella D. Oldham born 1858 died 1860-1870. Jackson Sr. served as a Deputy Sheriff for Lawrence County for many years and served in the New Hope Baptist Church. William, his brother, married Ann Wilkerson in Kentucky, sister to George W. Wilkerson of Lawrence County, Ark. William, known as a Deacon church starter, and Ann moved to Phillips County, Arkansas

      After Sarah died, Jackson married her sister, Melissa McCarroll, on 13 Oct 1862 in Eaton, Lawrence County, Arkansas and had the following children: Mary A. born 1864; Henderson V. born 1866; and Harvey Oldham born 1866. Jackson died of a heart attack under a tree on September 9, 1886 while looking for a man.

      More information on the descendants of the Oldham family can be found in "The Descendants of Nathaniel and John McCarroll" written by the late John Richard McCarroll of Waco, Texas.
