Looking for the deaths of the parents of Martha "Mattie" Odom. She as born in Dec in 1881 or 1882. It has been told through family that Mattie's mother (I don't have any information on her mother or father as far as names go) died when she was very young and that her father passed not long after her mother. I do know that she completed up to second grade in school, so I was thinking maybe her father was alive until then. At that time, she went to live with her aunt in uncle in Houston County Texas for the 1900 census.
