Continuation of Joseph O'Dell
so I found my cousin Lin, and after some time I found my great grandfather!! It turns out that he had been living about 20 miles from his original village of Temple Grafton. He was predeceased by the woman he had gotten pregnant, her name was Doris. They had children, how many I'm still unsure of. Lin and I have found multiple index listings for children for this couple, but they have different surnames then O'Dell. But at times they are referred to as O'Dell???? It was so confusing. Lin sent out letters to various leads we found. One time after sending out a batch of letters to people she received a phone call telling her to leave things the way they are and not to poke into this any further! We still don't understand exactly Joseph's whole family situation with Doris. But we are not leaving things be, we are going to get to the bottom of this whole mess one way or another!!
tomorrow I will tell you about the interesting things we have found along the way!!
I just wanted to say too, that about a week ago I posted some resources that I have and i'm willing to do look ups for!! This posting has now been moved to the 'archive' section of my blog. So please take a look! Perhaps there is something that one of you could use a look up with. If you do want a look up, please use the 'comment' section of the most recent post, this is located at the end of each individual posting, to ask as I don't always go through my archived posts so I may overlook it!! Also, my contest has really gotten off to a good start, I have over 40 people now entered, so get your name in to me as well!!!
