Mrs. Ada (Weeks)O'Steen was a charter member of the High Bluff Baptist Church in present Brantley (then Wayne) County, when it was formed on June 30, 1819. Mr.O'Steen was baptized into the same church May 11, 1823, and on November 8, 1823 they were dismissed by letter to join in organizing the Kettle Creek Baptist Church in what was then Appling County, Georgia (But which became WareCounty in 1825). Due to the loss of the latter church's records their subsequent church membership cannot be traced.
John O'Steen, late in life made a move with his family to Columbia County, Florida. He is shown in the 1840 census of Columbia County. John O'Steen died in Columbia County on Feb. 15 , 1841. Ada (Weeks) O'Steen after the death of her husband moved in with her daughter, Easter Robinson, who lived in Camden County, Georgia. Ada (Weeks) O'Steen is shown living with her in the 1850 Camden County census. She is thought to have died between 1850-1860. John O'Steen, and Ada (Weeks) O'Steen exact places of burial are not known.
There has been some controversy for several years over Phoebe O'Steen's birth being before John and Ada's marriage. During the colonial period it was very common for couples to live together and even has some children before their actual marriage. Such couples were recognized as man and wife who later marry when a minister was around. Ealier researchers upset over this birth incident before marriage have concocted several stories about Phoebe O'Steen . One was that she was a half sister of Ada Weeks-this is not true. Another is that she was a relative living with the family-also not true. Illegitimacy was a sticky issue in the colonial period. A bastardy bond would have to had been posted for any illegitimate child. Carteret County, North Carolina records are quite extensive and no such bond exists for Phoebe O'Steen. She was the daughter of John O'Steen and Ada (Weeks) O'Steen that they had prior to their marriage.
There has been some controversy as to who are the parents of Phoebe. She is shown as other family member living in the household of Theophilus Weeks and Ann O'Steen when Theophilus applied for his Revolutionary War pension.
It has been said that Phoebe O'Steen Weeks is really the daughter of John O'Steen and Ada Weeks (sister to Theophilus). and that Ada died young and Theophilus took Phoebe into his house hold to finish raising, which would explain her name being Phoebe O'Steen Weeks. It could be that she was adopted. Nothing has been proven!!
Ada Weeks was the daughter of Silas Weeks and Zillar Hunter. She was baptized Jan 30, 1819 in the High Bluff Primitive Baptist Church.
Ada's brother Theophilus is buried at the Old Providence Baptist Church, Lake City, Columbia, Florida. OLD PROVIDENCE BAPTIST CHURCH, 904-755-1648, HIGHWAY 245, LAKE CITY, FL 32055
