With Jordan Foote signing at W/WT, this creates the very rare feat of 4 generations of one family playing SANFL. Might be one for Spell Check but how often has this occurred?

Recent 3 generation families include the Aish's at Norwood (Peter, his son Andrew and his son James)  plus the Haines family at South (grandfather Colin, his son Peter and then Joseph)

The Oateys have 4 generations of footballers along this line
Ted [PA + WT]
Jack [NW]
Robert [NW]
David [ST]

There was another Oatey that played before all of that line
There was Ted Oatey who played for NA in the 1880s
Perhaps he was related to the other Oateys ?
If he was , that would make it 5 Oateys

Robert Oatey had a brother Peter who played for Norwood

And a great West Adelaide family they are, too.
