Odell family

The information on the O'Dell family as I present it here was given to me years ago by a cousin, Robert Odom, a descendant of William Marion O'Dell, brother to my great grandmother, Sara Ann. Robert sent me copies of everything he had including family photos. His was the first contact I had made with any relations on the O'Dell side of my family. His information was invaluable to me and I hope to continue to build upon it.

 

I have not as yet found a birth record for my 3G grandfather, Abraham O'Dell but he was born about 1781 in Virginia, county not named, according to the 1850 Pulaski Co VA census where he is listed as age 69. There is no wife listed with Abraham in the 1850 census, only his two youngest daughters, Elizabeth and Katherine.

 

Although there are several Abrahams in various O'Dell families, I hope that the more unusual name Stephen will provide clues. There was a Stephen O'Dell who was born about 1752 and died 10 Apr 1798 in Shenandoah Co VA. I am told there is a will for him but I have not yet located a transcription. This Stephen was supposed to have been a son of an Elijah O'Dell, born about 1725, and his wife Ann. Any information about this family would be very much appreciated.

 

Virginia land records show acreages owned by Odles and O'Dells in Tazewell, Wythe and Pulaski counties, including one dated 12 Sep 1835 for an Abraham Odle in Wythe Co. The tract of land involved was 128 acres on 'the waters of the New River'. My only clue to his descendants is a transfer of land in 1854 to his heirs, land that is described as on "the east side of New River".

 

Abraham O'Dell died prior to 29 Apr 1854, in Pulaski Co VA, when his household goods were appraised. I have not found a death record or a will for Abraham, however. From the mention of his heirs in the 1854 land deed, he had at least six children, five daughters and one son, Stephen, my 2G grandfather. I have found these siblings and their husbands and families in various Pulaski Co records but the land deed is still the only document I have found that connects them in any way.

 

There are two Abraham Odells in addition to my 3G grandfather listed in the 1850 Pulaski Co census, one 73 years old (wife Sarah) and the other 37 (wife Polly or Dolly). They were enumerated consecutively and I presume them to be father and son. 

 

The Levi O'Dell for whom the 1854 land grant confirmed ownership of Abraham's 33 acres, his wife Susannah and their two children are listed in the 1850 Pulaski Co census, living apparently adjacent to Stephen. A Susan Odell, wife of Levi, is listed among the children of John Nunn (and wife Elizabeth Hurst) in John's will, written 20 Dec 1853 and proved 17 Feb 1861 in Pulaski Co VA.

The inventory of Abraham's household goods mentions shoemaking tools but it's possible, with the low value placed on them, that these were relatively common goods to have on hand. On the other hand, his son Stephen, is mentioned in the 1850 and 1860 census records of Pulaski VA as living with an elderly shoemaker and wife so perhaps shoemaking was the 'family business'.

First Generation

1. Abraham Odell was born about 1781 in Virginia 1 and died before 29 Apr 1854 in Pulaski Co VA.

All of Abraham's six children were born in Pulaski Co or Wythe Co, Virginia since Pulaski was not formed until 1839.

General Notes: A copy of an 1854 deed from the heirs of Abraham O'dell to Levi O'dell lists his heirs as: Harvey Nunn and his wife Nancy, William S. Owen and his wife Elizabeth, Stephen O'dell and his wife Mary, Harvey Hill and his wife Lucinda, Katherine O'dell of the County of Pulaski, and Augustin Cooper and his wife Amanda of the County of Washington, of the one part, all of the State of Virginia and the heirs of the aforesaid Abram O'dell. - from Robert Odom

There are few facts on which to identify Abraham's parents. Because of his naming a son Stephen I am currently looking for any documentation on the family of a Stephen O'Dell (b. abt 1752) said to be the son of an Elijah O'Dell (b. abt 1725, will proved 10 Apr 1798 in Shenandoah Co VA) and his wife Ann.

Abraham was a fairly common name in the O'Dell line and there are several listed in the 1850 Pulaski Co census. My Abraham is listed in the 1850 Pulaski VA census with his two youngest daughters and without his wife. There is another Abraham, age 73, with wife Sarah, age 75. Next to him is another Abraham, probably a son, age 37, with his wife Dolly, age 27. I do not yet know the relationships of these O'Dells.

From VA land grant records: Odle, Abraham, 12 Sep 1835, Wythe Co, 128 acres, on waters of New River; Grants 85, p. 157.

An Abraham Oadle is listed in Grayson Co in 1830 with children of the right age for this Abraham, with one additional son:
Abraham age 40-50, wife age 40-50, 1 son under 5, one 5-10, one 10-15, one daughter under 5, 2 5-10 and 1 10-15.2

 

Occupation: Shoemaker.

Abraham married Sarah Breeding on 30 Aug 1815 in Wythe Co VA. Sarah died after 1830. The naming of parents as Abraham and Sarah in daughter Catherine's marriage record is probably as close to proof of Abraham's marriage to Sarah Breeding as I'll get.

Second Generation

 

2. Stephen Odell (Abraham1) was born about 1817 in Pulaski Co VA, died after 1885 in prob Limestone, Washington TN, and was buried in prob New Salem Baptist Cem, Limestone, Washington TN.

General Notes: Marriage record listed under Stephen Odle.

All members of the family born in Virginia. They lived in Newbern, Pulaski Co VA until just after the Civil War when they moved to Brownsville, Washington Co TN.

In both 1850 and 1860 Stephen resided in Pulaski Co VA with James and Dolly Madison, an elderly shoemaker and his wife. Their relationship, if any, is not known to me.

Stephen apparently died after 1885. I have a copy of letter concerning 1885 taxes for William Odell and his father Stephen Odell, letter dated Jonesboro '87, from cousin Robert Odom. Stephen and Mary are believed by Robert to be buried in unmarked graves in New Salem Baptist Church Cemetery, Limestone, Washington Co, TN near their home. Mary Wohlslagel believes they are buried in unmarked graves in Asbury Cemetery, Washington Co, TN.2

The birth, death and burial information given above for Amanda O'Dell Cooper was recently sent to me by descendants of Agleston and Amanda. If you have any information on this family, please contact me or Carolyn Hurd, Chris Driver or John Hamilton.

 

Agleston and Amanda and their first four children are listed on the 1850 Pulaski Co VA census, enumerated two families after Abram Odle and his two as yet unmarried daughters, Elizabeth and Catherine. The next census in 1860 shows the Cooper family in Washington Co VA. Agleston and his son are both shown on the roster of the 63rd VA Infantry along with other possible relatives. Agleston is then shown as Eglestine (two of many spelling variations found in various records) on the roster of the 105th Virginia Militia, Goodman's Co, as age 42, farmer.

Amanda married Agleston Thomas Cooper on 12 Mar 1840 in Pulaski Co VA.5 Agleston was born about 1821 in Virginia, died after 1880 in prob Washington Co VA, and was buried in prob Gum Hill Cemetery, Washington Co VA.
