I am a direct descendant (great,great, great grandson)of Henry Sion Odom b1755 - d1840 in Marlboro County, SC. He married Martha Snead about 1780. His son, Henry Sion Odom, Jr. married Elizabeth Easterling, and my great grandfather was the third born - Peter E. Odom (1831-1911) Peter served in the 24th South Carolina Infantry Regiment, Company B. His brothers, Henry E. Odom and James Lewis Odom served with him. A fourth brother, Willian B. Odom served with the 21st Regiment of Infantry - South Carolina Volunteers as a 3rd Corporal and was reported wounded and captured alive. I do not know what happened to Peter's three brothers, but Peter survived the war and my grandfather was born of his second wife, Nancy Newton in 1876. Henry Joesph Odom died in 1960. My father was Philip Nelson Odom, Sr.(1916-1980).
