  • Notes 
    • Source: Garry Oaks : 4 marriages I will tell you what I know of him to tide you over until you can get hold of H.L. Oak's work. Jonathon was born in Skowhegan, Maine Aug.21, 1717. Jonathon had 4 wives and 16 children in all. From about 1766 he was referred to as "Captain" in the official records; "...This would indicate service in the French-Indian wars [and] ...he fought with Wolfe at Quebec and was employed to make the fallen hero's coffin." It also talks of an island in the Kennebec river that is (or at least was in 190 0) still named after him. He died (it appears) in 1784. When written in 1900, Capt. Jonathon Oaks had some 5000 descendants.
