Michael W. Brown notes 1996: Family tradition says he served in the Revolutionary War with his father at the battle of Guilford County Courthouse, NC. He came to age in Madison County, Kentucky when he came onto the tax rolls. Most likely the first three children listed are not his oldest children.
William Miller History pg 480: "Tyre Oldham acquired lands in Madison County, KY as early as 1798 and made several deeds to lands in said county, in which his wife, nancy, joined and his names appears on the Clark County records in 1807.
