The below house in Cleveland County NC is where my 2xgreatgrandparents William Cathey
Wolfe and his Wife Phoebe Lee with daughter Era Wolfe lived. This was an Old Oates House
he bought as explained in the first email.  I have further in these papers my Great Uncle
Forest Wolfe Wrote that his daughter Era and son William Ivey Wolfe ran a post office out of
this house for a while. Also they had many slaves that lived in the house and the bottom floor
was used to store grain.  -

HI,
I'M MELANIE OATES MALONE FROM COLUMBUS,  GA, LIVE IN ALABAMA, DAUGHTER OF ROBERT J OATES, MARRIED TO MARGIE LEE FORTUNE,

HIS FATHER WAS ROBERT H OATES OF COLUMBUS GA, MARRIED TO MAYCIE ROUSE,

HIS FATHER WAS WILLIAM OATES, MARRIED TO MARY WILLIAMS,
FROM EMANUELE COUNTY, GA.

I HAVE A DATES ETC ON THIS LINE OF OATES IN GA. NOT A LOT, HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY MOTHERS SIDE FOR THE PAST 2 YEARS.

I HAVE WOLFE'S FROM NC AND I HAVE A PAPER WRITTEN BY A GREAT UNCLE, ABOUT MY 2XGREATGRANDFATHER WM CATHEY WOLFE,

WHO BOUGHT 2 TRACTS OF SPECULATION LAND IN CLEVELAND COUNTY, NC, BETWEEN
NEW HOUSE AND LATTIMORE,

NEAR
REHOBETH METHODIST CHURCH, WHICH IS IN SHELBY NC. HAVE LOTS OF RELATIVES STILL IN THAT AREA.

  IT GOES ON TO SAY THAT WM CATHEY WOLFE, IN 1874 BOUGHT PART OF THE OATES LAND AND MOVED HIS FAMILY INTO THE THE OLD OATES HOUSE ON MUDDY FORK CREEK, A BRANCH OF BUFFALO CREEK..

HE (MY GREAT UNCLE) SAYS HE BELIEVES THERE WERE ABOUT 700 ACRES IN THIS TRACT.
  AM VERY INTERSTED IN WHICH OATES THIS WAS, AND DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA ON THIS?
  VERY IRONIC MY WOLFES, ON MY MOTHERS SIDE AND THE OATES ON MY FATHER'S SIDE MAY HAVE CROSSED PATHS MANY YEARS AGO IF MY LINE OF OATES CAME FROM THIS LINE IN NC.

JUST LOOKING OVER SOME OF YOUR NAMES YOU HAVE, THERE ARE MANY OF THE SAME NAMES IN MY OATES LINE SUCH AS ROBERT,
JAMES, RON, WILLIAM, ETC.

LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU.

THANKS
MELANIE OATES MALONE

BTW I HAVE CHEROKEE BLOOD ON MY MOTHERS SIDE.
THAT IS WHY THE SIGNATURE LINES BELOW
EXCEPT FIRST ONE IS LAKOTA SIOUX.
JUST LOVE IT>>>>>>
WE ARE ALL RELATED!!!
