First: Bruce (15209 A05) and Fountain (25236 - A07) are both in
Second: Bruce is descended from Benjamin ODOM (1758-1822 Barnwell Co
Fountain is descended from Archibald ODOM (1759-1845 Pulaski Co GA)
Third: Benjamin ODOM's granddaughter Martha Ann ODOM (dau of Benjamin
Jr) m. David D. HOLMAN and they moved to Randolph Co., GA in

Barnwell Dist. SC m. 1827 Martha ODUM.. Emigrated to Randolph Co. 1833; moved to
Cuthbert 1836. Martha Odom was the daughter of Benjamin Odom, Jr. (m. Jane
McCreary). Benjamin Jr.'s brother Michael is alleged to be my (I didn't enter
who "my" is) ancestor. Their father was Benjamin Odom (b. 1758)" I guess this
was from Bruce since it matches his information.
