William, I am tracing my Odum family but have hit a brick wall with my ggggrandfather John O. Odum. He was supposedly born in 1813 in South Carolina and married in Alabama to Elizabeth Jordan. He moved on to Mississippi, Louisiana and ultimately spent his last days in Nacogdoches County, Texas where he is buried. I was wondering if you may have seen his name or his sister Louisa Odum who married a Yawn. I would love to see how far back you have traced the family. I believe that all Odum's must be related since the spelling with a "u" is not found very often. Look forward to talking with you soon.
