I am seeking information on the eldest son of Joseph OATES and Elizabeth WYATT, John who was born in Perquimans County in 1720. I am looking for any Deeds or land transactions or court records which may prove his relationship to Joseph Oates. I am hoping that Duplin's will books my list his will. His brothers James and Jethro died in 1766 and 1781, so hemight have died in between that date. He married ELizabeth Blount in 1742. I want to see if his eldest child's name is Joseph.

My gggggrandfather, Frederick SMITH is listed in the 1810 NC Duplin Co. census. His children included Christian, Frederick, Susannah (m James McDonald/McDaniel), Elisabeth, Mary Ann and others. There is also a Christian Smith listed in the same census--Frederick's father? The family moved to Indianna after 1810 and to Lawrence-Randolph Counties in Ar. before 1830. We think Frederick, Sr. may be of German ancestry. (Christian was born 1802 and Susannah in 1812.) Any information most gratefully appreciated! chorton
