      Jan,

      I am Dolly Dale Oldham Orr in Texas, researching the Oldham's of Monroe C o., KY. I am an amateur genealogist but have been editing research data for the Census Bureau for 20+ years.

      I enjoy your Rootsweb WorldConnect site and believe you have done a wonderful job in getting the Oldham data together and in one place.

      I think there may have been an error in recording the marriage of Lemuel Shockley & Elizabeth L."Betsy" Oldham of Barren Co., KY:

      "Betsy... b. 25 May 1763, d. bef. Jan 1837 Lemuel...b. 16 Sep 1783 (20 years younger than Betsy), d. 12 May 1841 m. 30 Aug 1810"

      (Betsy m. at age 47, had her first child at 48, her last child at 64 and died at age 64)

      "Samuel Shockley m. Elizabeth Longmire "Betsy" Oldham m. 30 Aug 1810"




      LDS-IGI 7726402-33: Samuel Shockley m. Betsey Oldham, 10 Aug 1810, Barren Co., KY



      The will of Elizabeth Oldham, d. bef Jan 1837 indicates she may have died unmarried:

      ELIZABETH OLDHAM WILL

      Name: Elizabeth OLDHAM Date Written: 10 December 1837 Date Probated: January Term 1837 Brother: Tarpley OLDHAM heirs; his dau. Elizabeth OLDHAM [late SHOCKLEY] deceased; John OLDHAM, Charles OLDHAM, George OLDHAM, Sarah B. OLDHAM (la te Sarah B. PEDIGO, decd); William OLDHAM, Susanna T. OLDHAM (late Susanna PAGE); Rebecca C. OLDHAM (late Rebecca C. CARTER); Richard OLDHAM, Bishop OLDHAM, James T. OLDHAM, Caleb OLDHAM, Mary Ann OLDHAM, Louisa T. OLDHAM.

      Heirs of Sarah E. PEDIGO, deceased: George E., Charles T., William F., Elizabeth T. and Mary C. PEDIGO. Executors: Charles and William OLDHAM. Witnesses: Henry HAYES, Thomas BALL, Joseph READ. Slaves: Griffin

      - Barren Co., KY Will Book 3, p. 116. http://cgi.rootsweb.com/~genbbs/genbbs.cgi/USA/Ky/BarrenWill



      Could Lemuel and Samuel Shockley be the same person?

      Could Lemuel/Samuel have m. Elizabeth L. "Betsy" Oldham the daughter of Tarpley Oldham instead of Elizabeth Oldham, the sister of Tarpley Oldham?




      I don't know if Betsy (dau of Tarpley Oldham) is a relative but it seems that she lived in Monroe Co., KY (as did her sister Susannah) at the same ti me as my Oldham's:

      1. Richard Oldham (b. c 1805 KY)
      + Martha A. (b. 1824 TN). Their children: Susan M. (1843 KY-) John T. (1845 KY-1915 Monroe Co. KY) Charles A. (1848 KY- ) L.J. (f) (1850- )

      2. John T. Oldham (1845 KY-1915 Monroe Co. KY)
      + Lucy A. Kidwell (1849 KY-1915 Monroe Co. KY) d/o John Kidwell (1825 Tompkinsville, KY-1911) & Catherine Bird Tooley (1829 Monroe Co. KY-1901)

      . 3. Charles Alfred Oldham ( 1877 Monroe, KY-1947 OK)
      + Effie Susan Strode (1892 Monroe, Ky-1965 OK) Twin of Ethel. d/o Charles Thomas Strode (1856 KY- 1939 Monroe Co, KY) & Vestina Ellen McMillin (1868 KY- 1933 Monroe Co, KY)

      4. Lester Marrs Oldham (1918 Monroe Co. KY-1984 OK)
      + Opal Truby Labor (1920-1998 OK)

      5. (Me)



      The LDS site has a Charles Oldham & Judith C. as possible parents for my Richard (b. c 1805). I found them on the Monroe Co. KY Census, Precin ct 4 and Charles seems too young to have been Richard's father but the ages ar e so different from one census to the next. I think they may have been brothers instead of father and son.

      The questions in the census records above were not meant for you. I simp ly copied a worksheet but thought I would leave the questions to help clarif y the data.



      I have been taking a closer look at Tarpley Oldham, b. 1765 VA, brother o f Elizabeth "Betsy" as a possible father for Charles and Richard...from his marriage to Polly Cabaniss. Do you know what happened to Charles and Rich ard Oldham? I can't seem to find anything on them.


      I started this as a simple error question about Betsy and Lemuel Shockley...sorry if I rambled.

      If you have anything to add to any of this I would appreciate it.
