Mrs. Hollowell's findings were VERY important to me as it allowed me to
link up with William Odeon/Odium/Odon/Oden who was the Mariner who bought
Land in Norfolk in 1651 as my earliest ancestor. Of particular interest is
the fact that, as a Master Mariner he was literate and his son William II
was also as indicated by the gift of books from him. Since William Odeon
was the signed name on the original will (see Mrs. Hollowell's photostat)
I must assume he himself spelled it that way and not some clerk's
interpretation of William's pronounciation. This is very important.
Isn't it wonderful when we all work together!
I'm fascinated by your line in that you seem to include so many different
spellings of Odom. I'm finding it helpful in my combined database to enter
everyone with a last name of Odom - i.e. William Odeon Odom, Wiley Odum Odom -
as it's easier to look for matches.
Question though. I don't see your email address (buckspike@...) on my list of
participants. Did you test out as part of the A group?
