Oates Sons Petition to Court
Lorene (Tillery) Houk is a descendant of both the James Oates and Jethro Oates lines by the marriage of fifth cousins James Seavy Oates (1809-1863), son of Steven and Elizabeth (Shipp) Oates, grandson of James Oates, and Mary Mariah Oates (1815-1885), granddaughter of Jethro E. Oates, in Sampson Co., N.C. in 1834. Later, they and their children, Fannie, Eliza Catherine, Jesse, and Nancy Jane, moved from Henry Co., Ala. to Shelby Co., Texas. Jesse was killed during the Civil War.
Most noteworthy of Lorene's genealogy work was the discovery of the fourth petition, that of a fourth son of Joseph Oates (1697-1747) during a trip to Salt Lake City.

These documents prove that there was a fourth child, a son named Joseph. More than likely then, the Joseph Oates in Sampson County and Bladen County, as late as the 1770's was the son. The father apparently died in 1747, as written in Minnie Speer Boone's book. Assuming that Jethro's petition was made at the same time as John's in 1749, then Jethro Oates probably was born in 1728, rather than 1732 (conclusion of John Martin Oates, Jr.), since he would have "arisen to full age" (21 years old) in 1749.
