95        GEORGE5     (Benjamin4, George3, John2, Johannes1), son of Benjamin and Bethia (Smith) Oatman, was born ca 1786 in Washington County, New York.  The dates of his birth and death are presently unknown.  He married Elizabeth Winslow.


The "Index of Awards on Claims of the Soldiers of the War of 1812" [1969] lists a George Oatman, who submitted a claim for military clothing and equipment used in service, and was allowed $14. 


A George Oteman is listed in 1810, Rodman, Jefferson County, New York, with one male under 10, one male 26-45, one female under 10, and one female 26-45.  The 1840 census of Adams, Jefferson County, New York, lists George Oatman in a household consisting of one male 10-15, one male 15-20, one male 50-60, one female 10-15, and one female 40-50. 


If this is the same George Oatman, Elizabeth was dead by 1850, as in that census George, age 63, born Vermont, a mason, is living in Adams, and with him is Pamelia Richards, 49, also born in Vermont.  Lacking necessary dates, it is uncertain whether these are all the same George.
