I am looking for information about the Odom family from the Orangeburg area. My grandmother was Leila Bolen Odom and my father was Murray David Odom. Please let me know where the "old" Odoms are buried. I have heard some are buried in Springfield and around that area. I would appreciate knowing the name of the cemetaries where they are buried.

Also, does anyone in the Springfield area know the exact burial place of EDWARD BOLEN from the Revolutionary War. He is buried in a corn field on someone's property out in the country. I went there as a girl, but have forgotten how to get there now. He is one of our first relatives on my grandmother's side of the family.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I found an old burial ground for the Odom Family off of Highway #3 in Springfield, SC. I wrote down the names in the cemetery. If you would like for me to email you a copy, let me know. There are also McCollum's buried there which go into the line I am tracing. The oldest Odom's in this cemetery are Chas. M. Odom 4-18-1858 to 4-13-1907, who married Anna Milhous, 6-7-1855 to 1-11-1934 and Nena Odom, 12-20-1855 to 9-14-1883, who married Dr. J.A. McCreary, 10-19-1853 to 8-9-1912. Also, Nena's parents, George I. Odom, 4-26-1829 to 1-20-1894 who married Narcissus H.(?), 10-29-1828 to 2-19-1905.
I am from the Edward Bolin line of Descention also and would love to get with you on your family line. I have traced each of the children of Edward Bolin as far as I could, your help in finishing a line would be greatly appreciated.

Edited: 1009909493000
I am researching my mother's father's lineage. My grandfather was George Robert Odom born 1909 died 1987...married to Ruth Virginia Meares. They lived in Whiteville, NC. My grandfather's parents were Frank Odom Idella Parker. They had 6 other children: Maggie Odom, Johnnie Odom, Tom Odom, Mary Odom, Katie Odom, Francis/Frances Odom. I am interested in finding out who Frank Odom's parents were and who his siblings were. Any ALL help will be greatly appreciated. Frank Idella lived in the Bladen County, Columbus County or Wilmington areas of NC. Thanks, Odessa Allen

OOOPS!!! Idella Piner...not Parker

Hi everyone! The posting before this one stated my great grandmother was Idella Parker. It was Idella Piner. I have just recently started working on my family tree have gotten so involved that I am staying up until the wee hours of the night reading message boards. It was close to 3am when I posted the above obviously my brain had long since gone to sleep. So if anyone has any information on Frank Odom who married Idella Piner probably lived in the Bladen County, Columbus County or Wilmington, NC areas...I would really appreciate hearing from you. My grandfather George Robert Odom was born in 1909 so I'm guessing that Frank Idella got married sometime between 1900 1908. I would like any information on their parents and/or siblings.
