Oakley Plantation was founded by Dr. Stephen Duncan during antebellum times. Oakley was one of several Duncan family plantations in Issaquena County. Dr. Stephen Duncan was a resident of Natchez but had considerable holdings in Issaquena County including Homochitto, Carlisle, Holly Ridge, Oakley, Reserve, Duncannon, Middlesex and Elleslie plantations. Duncan's son, Henry P. was a resident of Issaquena County and was enumerated in the 1860 Issaquena County Federal census. Dr. Duncan died in New York City during 1867. Oakley Plantation was probably still in the Duncan family during 1880, as they retained much of their southern property holdings after the Civil War.
