I am researching my Odom line and trying to prove each generation. I am particularly interested in Wills, Family Bibles, etc. for any of the following:
1. Elijah Samuel Odom family (b: 17 Sep 1816 Emanuel or Laurens County, GA; d: abt 1870, Emanuel Co GA; married Rutha Goff on 29 Oct 1835, Laurens Co GA)
2. Archibald Odom family (b: 07 Sep 1796, Emanuel Co GA; d: 17 Aug 1873, Emanuel Co GA; married Isabella Elizabeth Anderson on 05 Jun 1821, Emanuel Co GA)
3. Proof of Archibald’s parents. Some say they are Archibald H. Odom and Mary Polly Clinch. Archibald: b: 17 Feb 1781, Marion Co SC; d: before 12 Dec 1815, Pulaski Co GA)
I have the partial family Bible records for Archibald Odom, Revolutionary Soldier, as per his online Revolutionary War Pension Application and Bounty-Land Warrant Application File, but would like to have a copy of the entire family Bible record if more exists.
Please note that the title page and copyright date page of any Bible must be included to prove the validity of the Bible record.
I completed an application online, but am not sure it submitted properly.
Thank you for sharing your questions. We have one person in the NOA who is related to Archibald, and one person who is related to Elijah Samuel.
I’ll make sure someone familiar with these family lines gets your message.
