John Odell was New York born but a Michigan transplant about the time of the Civil War to the Brownsville, Haywood Co., TN area, marrying his Kentucky born bride, Kate about 1865, I assume in Kentucky. Their son Jeff D. was b. @ 1866/7 in Kentucky and daughter Maud A. was b. in TN 1871. I would like to know more about Kate, i.e. her maiden name, her parents names, where she was born. Census info. indicates she was born about 1846. She died about 1912-14 in Memphis, Shelby Co., TN buried alongside her husband in the Elmwood Cemetery. If anyone has access to obituaries for Memphis, perhaps there would be some record of her pre-married life in Kentucky listed in the details. Any help would be most appreciated.
