I was seeking information on a James Odom, b. 1857.He is found on the 1870 Lawrence County Census with my Bowling/Boling family, Hudson M. Bowling/Boling.It shows that he was 13 at the time of the census.I was wondering if the two families connected and how they connected.
I did find a Daniel Odom whose son's name was James but not certain if this is the same James listed on the census.
Our Bowling/Boling and Wood families there in Lawrence County Alabama are originally from Georgia.
If you have any information on these families I would be grateful for any help you could provide us.
