      Phoebe was born 22 February 1785, in Carteret County, North Carolina from "Pioneers of
      Wiregrass Georgia". She is a daughter of Ada Weeks, apparently born before
      Ada, daughter of Silas Weeks and Zilar Hunter, was married. Ada married John
      Osteen about 1787. Phoebe was possibly raised by Ada's brother Theophil
      Weeks and his wife Ann Osteen, sister of John Osteen. (Phoebe is listed as
      illegitimate child of John Osteen and Ada Weeks in "Families Remembered The
      Burnett, Prevatt, Walker, Stonecypher and Other Allied Lines of Northea
      Florida and Georgia", by John Albert Burnett page 122. This has credence as
      no bastardy bond was posted, there was a close relationship between the Week
      and the Osteen families and that John Osteen and Ada Weeks later married.)

      Phoebe and John were probably married about 1798 in probably Macintosh
      County, Georgia. Phoebe is buried in Swift Creek Church Cemetery, near Lake
      Butler, Union County, Florida. Her headstone is marked "Phoebe O'Steen
      Weeks". (Swift Creek Cemetery is at Zion Baptist Church.)

      In ancient records, the name is generally found as Osteen, not O'Steen.
