I'm searching for a Laura Garris who married a Frank Odom They had eight children. I've been told they were from Conway although this could be incorrect. The only dates I have are their fourth child born 1901 and their last child born 1914. Frank died around 1914. If you have this name listed in your family would love to hear from you.

Frank Odom was named Franklin W. S. Odom and he was
married 3 times in Northampton Co., NC. His brothers were
Emery Preston Odom who lived and died near Severn, NC and John Henry Odom who lived and died near Conway, NC.
They had a half sister whose father is unknown to me. The 3 boys' mother was Mary(Polly) Odom b. ca 1828 and d.ca 1903 in Northampton County, NC. The father was Etheldred Garris who died in 1862. Evidently Mary Odom and Etheldred Garris did not get married. He did provide support for them in his will. I am trying to figure out Mary Odoms parents. I believe her father is Isham Odom who died about 1848. I would like to know more about Franklin Odom and his family.

I have a Lloyd Garris b. 1912 in Northampton Co., NC which might be him as son of Henry Garris & Ida. Would it be possible to send the names with their information such as born/died/when/where that is in it. This is a treasure. I am at chgeagle@yahoo.com Dr. Charles H. Garris

I think I found this family Henry Pinckney Macajah Garris m. Ida Mae Bridgers , sons Henry Thomas Garris and Lloyd Daniel Garris m. Eva Alberta Lassiter, they had a daughter Mary Linda Garris who was a professor at Duke U in Durham, NC. Interestingly she was a professor of Hemotology-study of blood in man, my sister Mary Lou Garris has a Masters Degree in Hemotology and wrote a College book "Blood Groups in Man" and taught at U of California in Palo Alto, Ca where her husband is an electrical Engineer for Hulett Packard, computers. I would appreciate the information from the family Bible. Charles
