The Muscogee (GA) Enquirer of November 9, 1842, shows Rhoda Odom, wife of John Odom,Sr., as having died October 25, 1842, in Russell Co., AL. It shows her age at death as 67 years and 10 months. I obtained a copy of this death notice from Auburn University, which has microfilm of the Muscogee Enquirer.
I am a descendant of John Odom, Jr., brother of the Aaron Odom who married Martha Bailey. I saw an obituary of Aaron Odom in. I think, a Methodist publication, which said that he had served as an Alabama state legislator for a time.
