I have worked on my branch of the Odendahl Family for 15 years. MY Branch starts with 2 brothers William & Peter that married 2 sisters Clara & Cecilia. They all come to America from Colone Germany in 1853.

Please e-mail me and let me know if you think we have a connection.

Thank you.

Surnames: Odendahl
I'm a descendant of the William Odendahl you mention.

I have some info on his son Robert and descendants.

My line is:
William, Robert, Hubert, Rollis (my Dad who passed away last December).

Are you the daughter of Francis and Lola? If so, we may have met many years ago.

NEW E-Mail address!

Yes I am Francis & Lola #2 daughter. I don't remember much about your family EXCEPT that when we were at your house when we were on vacation your cat had kittens and our mom thought it was a good learning experience and made us watch the birth.

I have been working with Lamberts grand daughter Teresa on the family history. I have worked on the Odendahl for 15 years. Lola and I went to Carrol Co Iowa and found a bunch of Odendahls that belong to Roberts oldest brother John Edward.

I saw on the Social Security Death Index that Rollis had died in December. My mom didn't know about it. Can you give me any detail? (I don't mean to be insenitive)

My dad Francis died of a massive heart attach on Jan 28, 1986. (the day the Challenger blew up) He had never had heart trouble. He was only 56 years old.

If you write me back please use my new e-mail as listed above. I have a lot of stuff on the Robert Family. I am sure that I have more old people info then young people info. Young people seem to multiply.

Thank you for answering me. We do have the same great grand parents.

Terry

I can't seem to find an email address for you on these pages.

Mine is markodendahl@mediaone.net

If you send me your email addr I will send you some updated info on dad's branch of the family tree. I'll have to check with my siblings if they mind sending birthdates, etc.

I've been using Family Tree Maker software, but it will let me export data to a standard format.

Here is my new address. Please send info on your family as I have misplaced my Hubert, Agnes file. I am sure I don't have dates and places that I would like anyway If you have them.

Thanks a bunch.
Later.

Hello Terry. My great grandmotherm Martha, married an Odendahl in the early 1900's. If my memory serves me correctly her maiden name was Henchman (sp??) but she also came from Koln. My great grandmother had two children Martha and Fredrick. Perhaps we are somehow related. Great grandma came through Ellis Island and lived in Newton or Fredon NJ for a while and later moved to and settled in Jersey City. Have you seen her in your lineage anywhere?

Many thanks.

Rob

I can't find any relationship to your Grandmother. Most of our Odendahls settled in Iowa or IL - the onto Minnesota.
Good luck in you hunt!
