Re: Major Jesse Oates...Brother of William Oates??
Thomas R. Oates....
My great grandmother was Erzula Jane Oates Clibourn.Her father was Louis Thomas Oates, and his parents William Oates and Elizabeth (Betsy) Earle Oates.This is documented in the Oates-Sublett Family History.However Charles Oates (pub. 1953) stops by saying that William, Jesse, and another brother (name?) came from NC to Muhlenburg Co KY around 1800. Is William from the James/Jesse/Jethro line?Is Jethro his father?
Lysander Gordon Oates' older sister's is my great-grandmother, who settled in Faulkner County, Arkansas.
Can you clarify this for me?Thanks in advance.
