My gggrandfather SOLOMON O'DELL married Amanda Phillips.
Their daughter LUCINDA married MYLUS LEAKEY at Mr. Lukins house in Caldwell County Mo. on April 29, 1882 by Rev. W.C. Maggart P.C.
A family member of my fathers sent a tin-type photo of Lucinda. We had it copied and sent it back.
My father was raised in Wyoming and was not close to his relatives - so I had no idea who Lucinda was
That was the start of my interest in family history - 1971
To this day the following is all the information that I have on Solomon. Amanda and Lucinda
I have info from Caleb (Jr.) back .
