Finding Joseph O'Dell

my love of genealogy began when I first heard the tale of Joseph Odell, my gt grandfather on my father's side. I was at a family reunion about five years ago when I first heard his name. His story begins in England....

Joseph was married to Kate Read, they lived in Temple Grafton, Warwickshire England. They had three children - Ethel, George (my grandfather) and Arthur. The First World War began and Joseph set off to battle. He never came home...NO, he didn't die in war. While stationed in England he had met a woman, named Doris, and began an affair with her. One night Doris' father showed up on Kate's doorstep telling her that Joseph had gotten his daughter pregnant and that Joseph was going to have to support the child. Ethel recalled listening to her mother cry well into the night. Kate had family in Canada and decided to move with her children there in order to escape this scandal. Kate and her children sailed for Canada and they never heard from Joseph again...

tomorrow I will tell you all about my hunt Joseph O'Dell!

take care
Kim
