I am seeking information about my great-grandfather, William M. Odum. William married Ellen Jane Bridgeman in Washington County, VA. Sometime after 1880, William, Ellen and their children headed west with the intention of settling in Oklahoma. Two different sources have named William as being murdered during a train robbery, and being buried in Little Rock, Arkansas. Thereafter, Ellen and most of the children returned to Virginia; a few children remained in the Arkansas/Oklahoma area. If anyone has information regarding how William met his end and/or where he is buried, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone has photos of these kinfolk and would be willing to share, please scan the photo in .jpg, .gif or .pdf format and email the photo file to: firstname.lastname@example.org
. Thanks very much!
