Dear Bill Rowan,
This is my second try...lost my first message to you!
Anyway, I would also be very interested in any data that you may have re: the Oathout's. My great grandfather was Augustus Pinkney Oathout & Anna Marie Tibbets was my ggrandmother....and I've never had a clue where my ggrandparents were buried. Thank you! All of the ones that I know about are buried in the Westerville Cemetery at/near Westerville, NE. Not much town anymore.
I've never heard of Cottage Grove, NE from anyone....Have heard of Barada and Verdon...but not C.C. Anyway, my grandfather was Charles Franklin Oathout/Rosa Jane (Gobel) Oathout my grandmother. I never knew them, they died before I was born. They are buried in Westerville Cemetery, as well as my mother & father, Charles Frederick Oathout, and Bessie May (Cox/Booknau) Oathout, and 2 of my brothers, Dick & Roger, and my father's aunt, Maude May (Gobel) Haney (sister of Rosa Jane Gobel) & husband Isaac Haney. Also, the Booknau people, which are almost non-existant on the I-net. Sarah Jane Booknau adopted/foster parent (?) my mother abt. 1906 and is buried in L.A., CA. And, most or all of her family are buried in NE.
I'm sorry, but can't answer your question re: the Oathout brothers who ran a blacksmith shop in Cottage Grove. I do know that my grandfather, Charles Franklin Oathout was a blacksmith, I was told.....in Westerville...maybe also in C.G.,NE.
I would be interested to know how you found the burial locations of the Oathout's, etc., in Harris Cemetery. I tried on the I-net, and came up with only 6 people (I didn't know any of them).
Also looking for any Haney info, as well as Hansen, Grant, Gobel, & Booknau.
Think the children are: Charles Franklin, Fancis Martin, Wm. Jennings, Calvin, & Ida Lillie Oathout. Yes???
Charles F. is my grandfather. I don't have any of Augustus' relatives; brothers, sisters, mother, father, etc.
Hoping we can help each other,
Thank you,Julie (Oathout) Wilmoth
