While researching the local Oats I came accross something I thought other Oates would want to know.
1860C - Levi OatsGunsmith
B: abt 1832 VA
Living in Plain, Kosciusko, Ind.
I noticed on the WV Division of Culture Online Records that:
A Levi Oats marriage was overlooked.
Go to site, Marriages, Put ' Ours ' as a last name search, oppen up his marriage record,All the way at the bottom of the page #47 is:
Sept 5(?)Levi Oats 24, marryingRuth E. Haggerty 17, his parents Peter & Sarah Oats, Gunsmith occupation
Somewhere online, perhaps at Findagrave ? someone else had pointed out a HS for a Peter Oats which is probably this father.
My wife is desended thru another Peter Oates who stays in Hardy County and is about 30 years younger than this Peter Oats.
