383      GEORGE6     (Oscar5Benjamin4, George3, John2, Johannes1), son of Oscar Oatman, was born in Jefferson County, New York.  His date of birth, death and name of his wife are unknown.


The 1830 census of Jefferson County, New York, lists a George Oatman as the head of a household containing one male under five and one male aged 20-30, with no females.  If this is the same family, it would place George's birth date in the vicinity of 1800-1810, with the small child being his son George, born 1829.


Although George is not listed in the 1851 census of South Norwich, he is living there in 1861 with his son Warren and his family.  He apparently died between 1861 and 1871, as he is not listed later.


A George Oatman is listed as being on the Board of Overseers of Highways in Oxford County, Ontario, on January 1838, but it is unknown if this is the same George Oatman.

Another source lists Almira and Hosea's children as:  Elijah, Niram, Lovicia/Louisa, Lydia, Hosea, Jr., and Washington, which conflicts with census and other records.
