I am a descendant of Joseph OATMAN and Christiana POPE through their daughter, Susannah OATMAN who married John PITMAN.
A George OATMAN, Floyd County, is listed in the 1820 Indiana Census, 3 Males less than 10, 1 male age 16-25, 2 males 26-44, 2 females less than 10, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 16-25, and 1 female over 45.
George OATMAN served in Capt. French's Co. - 5th Regt. Indiana Militia, enlisted May 11 1812, discharged June 10, 1812.
On February 10, 1815, George OATMAN of Harrison Co., applied for patent of the SW portion of section 19, Townshiup 2 (see reference #04529 of Jeffersonville land entries index)
George OATMAN was a Campbellite or Christian preacher and one of the earliest preachers in Floyd County.
George OATMAN's will (either dated or probated on February 22, 1822) is on pages 47-50 in Will Book A (1819-1830), Floyd County, Indiana.
You've probably already got all this info but thought I'd send it along!
This info is from a genealogy on the PITMAN, SNYDER, OATMAN families and I've lost the cover page.I met someone on the internet who offered to copy it for me and I sent her money to do so....it also has a copy of the ferry boat license issued to Joseph OATMAN in1808 and signed by the territorial Governor, William Henry Harrison....interesting stuff.
I wonder if anyone has ever connected our Joseph OATMAN to the OUTMAN family in New York.I'm sure there is a connection somewhere.
