I am interested in the Oakley family (however spelled; particularly Oakley, Oakeley, Okeley, de Okeley or other variations).
In the U.S., my interests include the: Long Island and Westchester, NY Branches; also Maryland and Virginia. In the U.K., they include Shropshire and other Counties in England.
A current research need relates to marriages of three different Thomas Oakleys to three Martha Sherwoods; all of the Westchester, NY branch. The literature reports three such marriages within a 25-year period starting in the late 1700s-- which seems highly unlikely.
Other families of interest are the: Earl, Gayman, Kellogg, Langstroth, Lewis and Pfister families.
My file of this currently approximates 9,500 persons and extends backward in time to the 1400s.
I look forward to exchanging information with others on a no-charge basis if such information includes citations of its sources and especially if it includes biographical or other notes as well as usual vital statistics.
