James Odom's Timeline


James was born between 2 June 1849 and 1 June 1850, according to 1860 U.S. Cens., Newton Co., Miss., pop. sch., dwelling 951, family 961, “Frederick” [Shadrack] Odom household. The surviving copy of the census is not the original. Rather it was one of two handwritten "duplicates" that were made for sending to the state and federal authorities while the original copy was to remain locally where local families could check their data for accuracy. Errors of the Shadrack/Frederick type abound on those recopied returns.
