Oates Family Genealogy Forum
My 23 year old daughter forwarded your post from 2006 on a geneology website. Well, we must be related. My grandmother was Laura (her name on her birth certificate I believe was Laurel) Oates (Gaulton) and my grandfather was Edward Oates. Their daughter, Edna, was my beloved mother who passed away in March of 2002. One of my grandparents was from Hearts Content and one was from St. John's Newfoundland. Isabella Caroline Hughes was my great grandmother maybe? I've always known that Hughes was a family name on my grandfather's side but forgot the exact connection over time. Edward Oates passed away in Brooklyn I think in Dec. of 1961. You mentioned in your post the year 1971. I was born in May of 1961 and I know Edward passed away when I was about 6 months old. The year of his death then is definately 1961. Laura is also buried in Brooklyn and passed away I think in May of 1981 which was also in your post. I would love to hear from you. I have always had an interest in geneology and would like to learn more. I am really hoping that you are at this same email address. You can email me at this address: email@example.com
Hoping to hear from you,
