Thanks for any information on these family names, most were from Morgan County. Looking for information on my Grandmother Lucy Ann BAIN OAKS, May have been Lucy Elizabeth Ann BAIN, nick name (Diecy), Family records not very clear. Born February 23, 1846 in Morgan County, Died on January 24, 1890 in Cullman County. Lucy Ann BAIN married Isaac Columbus OAKS on January 13, 1864. Who was her Mother and Father? I've been told they were William and Sarah MORTON BAIN. We think she was Indian or part white, maybe all white or at least raised by white people. Isaac C. and Lucy Ann had 13 Children, some Born In Morgan Co, The Rest Born In Cullman Co. Isaac C. OAKS, the younger of at least 4 sons of James Wilson and Nancy C. Blanton OAKES. James Wilson OAKES born on June 12, 1800, died on February 26, 1885 and Nancy C. BLANTON born on May 27, 1807, died on April 15, 1878 were Married on October 26, 1823 in the old Cotaco County Alabama (later named Morgan County in honor of one of the Morgan family members) they remained in Morgan Co. Both buried in Key Cemetery in Morgan County at Gandy's Cove, East of Falkville Alabama. James Wilson and Nancy C. Blanton OAKES had at least 6 daughters. Would like to hear from descendants of the the following great aunts and uncles (grandfather's sisters, brothers). These People were in an area from Oakes Hollow to Gandy's Cove in Morgan County, Just East of Falkville Alabama. Margaret Malachi OAKES married Murdoch McKenzie HOLMES on October 26, 1853. Jane OAKES married William COZBY on October 7, 1856. Mary C. OAKES married James V. COSBY on February 19, 1854. Sarah E. OAKES married John T. DRINKARD on December 23, 1858. I have no marriage record on Cathorine and Malinda OAKES. James Wilson and Nancy C. Blanton OAKES had at least 4 sons. John OAKES married Harriet J REA March 14, 1889, son or grandson?, family records not clear. Samuel J. OAKES married Amanda C. BAKER on September 16, 1865. Joshua OAKES married Mary E. HOMES on February 6, 1857, (Mary's E HOLMES' father seems to have been A.J. HOLMES). Isaac Columbus OAKES married Lucy Ann BAIN on January 13, 1864. Joshua and Mary E OAKS, Isaac C. and Lucy Ann OAKS Moved to Cullman Co. before 1880. Civil war records changed the spelling OAKES to OAKS, in this area they are the same family. Hope to hear from descendants, of the the following aunts and uncles (my father's sisters, brother) most of these people were born in Morgan County and married in Cullman County Alabama. Ella E Oaks and Caleb KING married February 11, 1886. Emily E. (Jennie) Oaks and Sidney E. HAYS, married August 24, 1890. Aunt Jennie and Uncle Sidney Hays had at least 5 children 4 (known) girls: Georgia, Harvy, Emma, Annie, and I think 1 named Susie, 1 boy: Henry, who had at least 1 child, a daughter and maybe a son. Joanna T OAKS and Tramby L LIVINGSTON, married Oct 30, 1890. They had a son named Leo. Charley C OAKS, no one remembers if Uncle Charley was ever married, I think he was, he died at age 23. Mollie Coffer OAKS and WW ALLEN married Dec 13, 1902. They had at least 1 child. Eunice ALLEN daughter of Mollie Oaks and WW Allen Is buried in Lawrence Chapel Cemetery at Fairview AL, beside her mom. Mollie Oaks Allen died January 31, (family records say 1906, head stone says 1904)? and Eunice 1902-1906, has fresh flowers on their graves, so I think some one knows of them. I would like to meet these family members of aunt Mollie Oaks ALLEN. Any help in locating my cousins will be greatly appreciated, thanks. My grandmother Lucy Ann BAIN OAKS died on January 24, 1890, when my father was 10 months old. My grandfather remarried later that year to Mary Josephine KELLER from Blunt Co. on August 21, 1890. They had 9 more children, in the fall of 1900 they moved to Rogersville in Lauderdale County, North Alabama where their last two sons were born , a few years later they moved to Ethridge TN. near Lawrenceburge. I knew the aunts and uncles that moved to TN. Isaac C. and Mary J Keller OAKS are buried there. Most of their children and grandchildren remain in this area. 512, 16th Terrace NW Birmingham AL 35215
