James Oldham, b. 1820, Virginia married ca. 1851 in Augusta, Georgia, Louisa Duval, b. c 1834, Maryland. They had children: Charles (1852), Agnes (1855), James M. (1859), Stillborn baby (1861), Mary (1863), Laura C. (May 1866), Francis (1867), Virginia (May 1870). This family is listed in 1860, 1870, census Augusta, Richmond, Georgia. In the 1860 census also listed in the household is mother of James Oldham, Sarah Oldham, age 61, born in Virginia.

My grandmother married in Savannah, Georgia in 1896, John M. Oldham b. 17 Dec 1869 in Augusta, Georgia. He died 19 Feb 1904 in Thomasville, Georgia. John worked as a printer for newspapers and printing companies.

In 1880 Washington, Wilkes County census, In St. Joseph's Orphanage two Oldham boys are listed: Francis Oldham, age 12, works as a printer and John Oldham, 8, pupil.

In 1880 James Oldham and his mother, Sarah Oldham, are listed living in the Richmond County Poor House.

In 1888 thru 1891, James M. Oldham, cigarmaker, and John Oldham, printer are listed in Savannah, Georgia city directories. Also, in Savannah, 11 Feb 1887, Francis Oldham died at St. Joseph's Infirmary and is buried in Catholic Cemetery in Savannah.

Are these three men all from the family of James Oldham and Louisa Duval?

In 1900 James M. Oldham, (born Nov. 1864) is living with his wife and children in Macon, Georgia. John married my grandmother in Savannah in 1896 and they left Savannah and were in Ware County, Georgia in 1900. From there they travelled to Thomasville, Georgia where John worked for a newspaper until his sudden death in 1904.

If anyone has any information that helps prove this is all the same family, I would like to hear from you.

Thank you.
