Abraham Odom Jr.
- I am also sending a copy of this to the NOA group.This is a letter on a follow up of Seybert and Isaac Odom from Georgia and Barnwell, South CarolinaJimmy, this is all the notes I have on Abraham Jr. Below that is notes I have on Isaac Odom who was the father of Seybert Odom. That is why I think Seybert is father of our Isaac. He named his son after his father. The last being part of a will of Seybert Odom.Seybert died in 1824 so Isaac had already before this will was written. I think he probably was dead when Benjamin went to Miss. with Malachi. Benjamin was 17 at the time if the birth year is correct. By the state census records the birth year would be correct. So I think Isaac died real young. That left Benjamin an Orphan. It is said that Isaac was married to Indian Sally. They may or may not have been married.I have a copy of a paper sent to me by Helen. It says that at the University of South Carolina there are some papers on the Odom and Turner Families. Seybert is listed in these papers. "land records, wills, and bonds resettlement of Seybert Odom and John Turner estates: correspondence with relatives in Georgia, Miss. and Texas; and genealogical information.I sure wish we could get a hold of the record????It says the author is Odom Family and the titile is Papers of the Odom and Turner famillies. Description 117 itemsControl No: ocm31523380I do not know if we could get a copy mailed to us or a inter Library loan. I have never used this source. Maybe you could ask Helen is she knows how to do this. We might could get them to make copies and mail them to us. Helen said she was waiting to hear from someone of this but I never heard any more. I will be glad to call the library and find out if they will send us copies if no one knows of another way. Let me know.BrendaNotes for Abraham Odom Jr.
From: Floyd H. Lawson, November 1998
Abraham Odom is shown as being at the battle of Cowpens, South Carolina,on 17,Jan. 1781,His Daughter, Elizabeth Lovica Odom, M. John Manasco, Sr.
Their son, James Knox Polk Manasco, married the dau. of William Manley Rutledge, and his wife, Nancy Ball Lawson-Martha Ann Rutledge. There is a story about James Knox Polk "Uncle Polk" Manasco and his brothers-in-law, James Daniel and William Rutledge avenging the death of William Manley Rutledge. The latter was killed by Joe Smallwood, 1866 in a conflict when William Manley had gone to a store along with his wife, Nancy Ball Lawson Rutledge. Joe was drunk and was trying to coerce William Manley to imbibe with him;William Manley Rutledge refused. Joe struck William Manley between the shoulders with "brass knucks" and William Manley apparently mounted his horse along with his wife and William Manley fell from his horse a short distance from the place of the fracas. So,his two sons and son-in-law avenged his death by going to his home and shooting him-dead. Neither of them knew whose bullet hit him. Abram Odom was in SC as early as 20-Jun 1780, as that was the date on which his daughter, Elizabeth Lovica Odom, was born in that state.
