The Jackson Henderson OLDHAM Family

Pendleton Co., KY and Lawrence Co., AR


The OLDHAM family of Lawrence County, AR has a very proud heritage. Jackson's ancestors were among the first white settlers in the state of KY. They mingled with well known men such as Henry Clay and Daniel Boone.   Jackson's father, Tyree, and grandfather, Jesse,  were with Daniel Boone in 1775 at what is now known as Fort Boonesbough.

Tyree Oldham purchased 1000 acres of land from Henry Clay in Pendleton County, KY and created a Plantation at Falmouth, KY. 

Jackson was the son of Tyree and Nancy Oldham of Pendleton County, KY.Henry Clay Oldham Family
