Joseph Oates married Elizabeth Wyatt, dau of John Wyatt and his wife, Rachel Calloway. She was the daughter of Caleb Calloway, Justice of Albermarle County, Speaker of the first General Assembly of N.C. and an original settler of the region before 1662, and his wife, Elizabeth Laurence. Elizabeth, the dau of William Laurence and his wife, Rachel Welch, was born in Nansemond County, Virginia, in 1655. All of these families were identified with the early colonial period of North Carolina history. Joseph Oates migrated from that section with his sons, James, John, and Jethro, to the section along the boundary between New Hanover and Johnston Counties, which afterwards became Duplin and Dobbs Counties. Haywood R. Faison Manuscript.
The death Joseph Oates has been given as 1747, although North Carolina Grant Book, page 303 shows a grant of 100 acres 7 Oct 1749 to Joseph Oates, between White Oak and Pond Branches...North side of Goshen Swamp. Other deeds bear out the fact a Joseph Oates had land transactions into the 1790's. Therefore, it is assumed he lived to a ripe old age, or there were two men by the name of Joseph.

Note: One of the first settlers from Virginia, he was in the Albemarle region of NC by March 1661 where he witnessed a deed. He was one of the representatives to the First Provincial Assembly in 1669. He was one of the original Justices of the General Court of North Carolina. He was Speaker of the General Assembly prior to 1699. Reportedly he was active in the Culpepper Rebellion and a member of the Parliament in 1677. Conner's Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. I, page 26 says, "Caleb Calloway's career shows that he was a man of ability and force of character. He was one of the very first settlers in North Carolina; a prominent planter and lawyer from its very beginning. Caleb Calloway became a large landowner and a man of importance in the new settlement. His name is found again and again in early records." Some say he was born in Wales or was of Welsh descent. Caleb and Elizabeth had 9 or 10 children. Caleb and son Joshua appear on tithables list taken by James Cole, January 1702. Caleb Calloway's will is on microfilm at the NC Archives: North Carolina Original Wills, 1663-1790; S.108.196.

Edmund Calloway was in Virginia prior to May 11, 1639, when his name appears on a deed for land in Charles City County. His sons were Thomas, Stephen, Richard, and Peter.
On February 27, 1665, his son, Thomas Calloway, was granted a patent for 766 acres of land on the north side of the James River, between Flowerdew Hundred and Powell's Creek, for transporting 16 persons to Virginia. He was the father of Stephen, who was granted lands in Lower Norfolk in 1652; Richard (c. 1640 - 1688) who was a member of a jury in Isle of Wight County in 1664; William; Benjamin; and Caleb, who witnessed the oldest deed on record in North Carolina in 1661.
His son, Caleb Calloway (c. 1640 - 1706), was a resident of Albemarle County in North Carolina by 1661, when he and Thomas Weamouth witnessed the deed of Kilcocanen, king of the Yeopin Indians, which gave George Durant the tip of land on Albemarle Sound, thereafter known as Durant's Neck. In addition to planting tobacco, he worked as a cooper, building the hogsheads using for shipping the leaves. He was active in the outbreak of the Culpepper Rebellion and a member of the Parliament in 1677. He was prominent in the affairs of Albemarle, serving as a Justice of the Perquimans Precinct Court between 1693 and 1699, Speaker of the Assembly of North Carolina prior to 1699, and Overseer of Roads from 1704 to 1706. Caleb married Elizabeth Laurance, the daughter of William Laurance and his wife, Rachel Welch.
"Will" Laurence married Rachel Welch in 1655. Their children included the following: Elizabeth, born 24 December, 1655; Will, born 20 July, 1661; Rachell, born 16 April, 1665; John, born 14 March, 1667; Hannah, born 1 December 1669. Hannah married Isreal Snelling. This Laurance family information was given to us by Carolyn Nelson, a descendent of Hannah Laurence.
The births of eight of Caleb and Elizabeth's nine children were recorded in the Old Berkeley Register: William (1671-1692); Dorothy (born 1674); Caleb (1676-1687); Joshua (born 1679); Mary (born 1681); John (1684-1687); Karhale (born 1686); and Elizabeth (born 1689).
Only one son was alive at the time of Caleb's death in 1706 in North Carolina. In his will he mentions as legatees: son Joshua (to whom the plantation is given), daughter Rachel and her husband John Wyatt, granddaughter Elizabeth Wyatt, and his wife Elizabeth. The name of the county was not listed, but the property given to Joshua was on Yeopin River in Chowan County.
