About Our Family Research
Both of my parents are deceased, and I am the oldest living member of my family. We know very little about the Oaks branch, and I am curious about where the Oaks family came from. My Dad's name was Thomas Stanley Oaks, son of Isaac Newton Oaks and Pearl Ann Pugh. I was told that Grandpa's mother was a French/Spanish lady from Canada named Goss, or something that sounded like that. My great-grandpa's name was Henry Oaks, and he died in Vandalia, MO. Lived past 90.
