I'm sorry but haven't been able to do much research during the last 12 months due to work committments and work travel.Hope to be able to start again after the first of the year. Jennett MacKinna and James Oakley were my 4Great Grandparents.I do know that according to the Revolutionary War Pension filing book, James, VA line born in Amelia Co., VA.- lived there until enlistment with father (Thomas, SR) his father moved to Henry Co,VA during the revolution.James lived there 3 years after the revolution (1782-1785), then moved to Rockingham Co.,NC for nearly 20 years, then to Williamson Co for 3 years and then to Maury Co., TN (1809-10 est)until death. I have several old deeds and land grants for Oakley family land in Maury County and a certified copy of the will of his son Stephen who died October 1850 and is buried on the homeplace with James and Jennett.I know from tax records that James lived next to Thomas, SR and Thomas Oakley, Jr. in Henry County, VA in 1782. I believe that Thomas Oakley, SR is father and is buried somewhere in Henry county.Also from other sources yet to be verified Thomas was probably married to Ann Gouch in Henrico Co VA and some of his children are said to be Richard, James, Thomas Jr., and William.James and William came to Tennessee via Maury County.I believe that William's decendents went on to Hickman and Dickson Countys.Another possible son of Thomas may have been Benjamin who also lived in Henry County.My grandmother (Lizzie Oakley) had a complete Oakley bible with all the generations listed from Ireland to her generation.Lost the bible sometime when she moved into a nursing home in Winchester, TN.By the way the Oakleys have a history of long lives.James lived into his 90's at a time most die early.His greatgrandaughter (my grandmother) died at age 105.Anyway the old stories that I remember from her is that they left after a famine (potato?) and came to Virginia as an indentured servant. Don't remember exactly what trade but would venture a guess as either a carpenter or blacksmith.That's all I know.If you find out anything please let me know.
