Yes, since that posting I have learned that that is indeed my line. Do you have the names of the children of John Yarboro Oats and his wife, Sarah, then? Or know Sarah's maiden name? I have the census info, but no names (other than Parham Y., now, for one of William's 5 brothers, as I count them from the census).
I have the line (working backward) as William Young Oats m. Martha Patsy Cole (haven't found her parents yet) John Yarboro Oats m. Sarah Stephen/Stephenson Oats m. Phereby Caraway James Oates m. Sarah Joseph Oates m. Elizabeth Wyatt James Oates m. Elizabeth
for the maternal lines, I have:
Phereby Caraway John Caraway m. unk (poss Elizabeth) John Caraway m Margaret Keeling or poss a Rachel John Caraway m. Elizabeth Cannon John Caraway m Elizabeth Kemp
Elizabeth Wyatt John Wyatt m. Rachel Calloway Caleb Calloway m. Elizabeth Laurence William Laurence m. Rachel Welch
I will be glad to send you my source material on this (caveat: mostly at least secondary if not farther from the original). My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
