Comments:   Wow! So many Oakes out there. I wonder how many of us might be related. How do you figure that out, anyway? I don't know of too many Oakes by me, and my knowledge of my immediate family pretty much goes dark before my father, Robert Oakes, Sr. I know very little about my grandfather, Joseph Oakes. Both are from here in NJ. Another tidbit: in a town nearby called Bloomfield, there is an historic mansion called Oakeside. A family headed by a David Oakes is said to have lived there in the 18 and 1900s and owned and operated a wool mill in the area. There are many Oakes graves in a cemetary not far from the mansion. I've been unable to determine whether my family is related. Something else: I read in a book on name origins that Oakes came from the old English meaning: dweller-at-the-oak-trees. Anyway, nice to meet you all. Get in touch if you'd like.

Where are you from: Beaverton Oregon
How did you hear of this site: I found this simply by luck!

Comments:   I am looking to find my ancestors - My dad - Lester R. Oakes was born in Huntsville Alabama - Son of John Dolphus Oakes and I believe Lucille Champion. I believe John moved from the Rome, Georgia area to Huntsville. I believe my grandad would have been Jesse W. Oakes - married to Betty Bell. Jesse would have been born about 1860, I believe in England.

Any help you could provide would be most appreciative. I am looking for any information - My Dad passed awhile ago and it has dawned on me recently that there is a huge, rich and vibrant past that I have missed. My dad moved to the west coast when I was quite young - so I never did connect with the relatives. My dad , Lester , also married once before to I believe Ruth McDonald? Also - John Dolphus had 2 wives as well.. ah well.. again, thanks for any help.

My daddy's mother was Edna Pearl Hill. They all lived in and around Worth,Tift,Doughtery,Crisp,Turner,Dooly,& Houston County in Georgia. I was raised in Warner Robins,GA the home of Robins AFB, GA. This is in Middle GA. about 18 miles south of Macon,GA. I just wanted to know about my kin folks on my daddys side. I didn't know much about them because my daddy's daddy died in 1918 during the flu epedemic. He was a baptist preacher administering to the sick. I knew he had a 1st cousin in Alabama named John Oakes and a 1st cousin named L.A. Oakes in Georgia, but that's all. My daddy had kin on his mother's side named Hill. I think the Hill's and the Oakes were related somehow. Didn't mean to write so much. Sure would like to hear from you folks. Mary

Comments:   Hi gang!

I'm back! I have learned a lot since the last time.

I am now looking for David Oakes b.1798 Humpback Mtn., Morganton, NC. d.1860(information on his parents)and any information on my father, Billy R., who just died in April of last year in San Antonio, Texas. He sometimes used Billie or Bill. m. Frances Pillar. Where and how is she? I wrote her but got no answer back and am worried.

Also, I would enjoy hearing from you. Oh, and don't be afraid to click on those links on my webpage, they are slow loading, but worth the wait. I also am on Rootsweb's WorldConnect with even more information so use their search engine.

Sincerely, Diana.

Comments:   Interested in Oakes family history - there seem to be 3 or 4 main lines, but they'ree tough to trace. My aunt did a lot of research many years ago - Thomas Oakes came from England in the late 1600's (I believe), settled on Long Island. Family moved to Digby, Nova Scotia during Revolutionary War, as they remained loyal to England. Some Oakeses are still there.

I have been trying to research my own line for decades, and I am convinced the only way to do it is to link up all the Oaks/Oakes families and see where we fit. Earliest known name was Selah Oaks, 1830 Susquhanna Co., Pennsylvania. Contact me.
