This book covers seven generations of Oldfields, beginning with James, Sr., who was born about 1762 in England and died in 1849 in Indiana. James was married to Deborah Jackson, b. about 1767 in England. Deborah also died in 1849 in Indiana. James and Deborah, with their three children, Ruth, James Jr., and George, immigrated to the U.S. from London, England, probably in the summer of 1824. James was in his early sixties at the time, and James Jr. was twenty-one. This book is presented in the Modified Register System and has been compiled mostly from primary source documents. It is enhanced with interesting historical background and, when possible, short biographical sketches of some of the Oldfield descendants. Photos of early descendants are presented in the book. Also, maps showing relevant locations are included to assist in understanding the movements of the descendants. A fullname index is provided as well. The index lists women under their married names as well as their maiden names.
