OATES, James - {from The Westville (Okla.) Democrat) Wednesday, March 17th at about 2 o'clock p.m. James Oates, one of the best known of the citizens of Cincinnati, passed away as a result of a stroke of paralysis. He had lived in that town for over 40 years and had been one of its best business men. He came to Cincinnati soon after the war between the states and opened a wagon shop which gradually developed into a large wagon factory and machine shop, employing sometimes as high as 20 helpers. He was a man of strong convictions and firm purpose. He was at all times a strong Republican and never failed to support his party's principles when the time and occasion arose. This gave him prominence as a politician and he was among the leaders of his party in Washington County. He was one of the party that accompanied Walker in his famous filibuster to Nicaragua and narrowly escaped death in that futile raid. When the war between the states opened he became a federal soldier and was twice wounded in the course of his service. At the close of war he had advanced to the rank of Captain. A few years ago he retired from business and concluded to take a much needed rest. He was known as a manufacturer of the best wagons in the country. He was a machinist without a peer in the county but age and hardships of the years bore upon him, necessitating his retirement.
