I am also a descendant of
Dempsey Odum My 4th great grandfather
Moses Odum 1824-1876 My great great great grandfather
Jacob Isaiah Odum 1854-1904 My great great grandfather
Lora Sidney Odum Sheppard 1898-1972 My great grandmother
Anna Ruth Sheppard Lewis 1921-2006 My grandmother
Carl Glynn Lewis 1947-1987 My father
I would love to compare notes sometime!
I wish my grandma Anna was still alive. She had stories about Dempsey, but I am too young to remember. I will have to get together with some of my family and record them or write them down so they are not lost.
