I am looking for information about the marriage of Joshua J. Odell (son of Joseph Odell and Sarah (Sally) Lewis) to Mary Robertson c. 1800??They had a daughter, Marie b about 1805 and 3 sons, John, Joseph R. and William.John married 1st Jane McDowell and 2nd Amelia Catherine Reay.Joseph R. married Hannah Phillips (any information on Hannah would also be appreciated) and William married Margaret Orr.The family lived from about the 1820s through to the early 1900s in Hemmingford, Quebec.
Joseph Odell and Sarah (Sally) Lewis lived in Odelltown in a stone house which currently sits on the north east corner of Rte 221 and Montée Guay/Montée Boyce.I had the privilge of being able to have a tour of this (now 211 year old) house 3 years ago.Awesome feeling to be able to walk exactly where your ancestors walked so many years ago.
Joseph Odell was the son of Joseph Odell and Martha Manning.
Joseph Odell Sr. and at least 6 of his 7 sons came to Canada after the war of 1776 and were granted land in what is now the Monteregie area of Quebec, just over the New York/Vermont border.Joseph Jr. built the aforementioned stone house in 1801 which remained in the family until about 1940.Joseph Sr. apparently moved to the Sutton area but I have not further information on him.
if anyone can fill in any blanks, I would surely appreciate it.
