Hi, I am researching the Odell family.I have an Amity Dean who married first Cornelia Frances Odell, and then after she died, married Sarah Amanda Odell.I believe these two women are sisters.Their parents names are Henry Odell born 1829 and died bef 1911 and Nancy E ? born Jul 1832 and died bef 1905.They both lived in Morris County, NJ for most of their lives (in Rockaway and Jefferson).
Sort of by process of elimination (in the 1860 census, I found an Arthur Odell living 2 houses away from Henry), I find both Arthur and Henry in the 1850 census living with their parents James Odell and Jane?.James Odell was born around 1800 in New York and his wife Jane was born about 1797 in New York.James lived with Arthur in 1870.
On a side note, Henry Odell is living next door to Daniel E Odell in the 1870 census in Pompton, Passaic, NJ.In the 1850 census, the children of James and Jane are:James, Henry, Arthur, Mary, Sarah, Jane, John, and Isaac.
This is where I am stuck.If I believe that Daniel is also James and Jane's child, he was also born in NY.I just cannot find where they were born in NY.Any information would be greatly appreciated.Thank you.Stacy
