William Simpson Oldham Sr. (June 19, 1813 – May 8, 1868) was an American politician who served as a Confederate States Senator from Texas from 1862 to 1865.


William Simpson Oldham Sr., was born on July 19, 1813, in Franklin County, Tennessee. Oldham served in the Arkansas House of Representatives in 1838 and was later a Justice of the Arkansas Supreme Court in 1842. He represented Texas in the Provisional Congress of the Confederate States from 1861 to 1862, and was a senator in both the First and Second Confederate States congresses from 1862 to 1865. Oldham died on May 8, 1868.[1]


Oldham County, Texas (established 1881), is named after him.

In popular culture

In Harry Turtledove's 1994 alternative history novel, Guns of the South, a "Congressman Oldham" from Texas is mentioned as sponsoring a bill to re-enslave freedmen in a victorious Confederacy. Since the setting was the time of the 2nd Confederate States Congress, it is likely that Turtledove was referring to Senator Oldham.
