BIO: Compiler found the following listings in a Deed Book Index at the Claiborne County, TN Recorder's Office: Deed Book: U-600 Jessee HOPPER to Marshall ODELL - 1866 Z/2-444 M.L. ODELL to James B. GIBBS - 1894 A/2- 51 M.L. ODELL - OATH OF IDENTITY - 1866 M/2-141 George W. HOPPER & wife to M.L. ODELL - 1874 2/2- 17 John AUSMUS to M.L. ODELL - 1881 Compiler located the grave of "Cpl. Marshall L. Odel; Co. E 6th TN Infy" in the Hopper Cemetery near Tazewell. In addition to the military data given, the dates on Marshall's tombstone read, "April 11 1832 - 04 Sept 1909" The grave of Marshall's second wife, Sarah EDWARDS ODELL is nearby; there are several other ODELL graves in this cemetery. Three or four old stones stand under an old tree in a far corner of the cemetery, but inscriptions are not readable. Compiler suspects one of these may be that of Serena HOPPER ODELL, Marshall's first wife. On another old stone only "D ODELL" could be read; this may be the grave of Marshall's son, David, twin to Jonathon. Feb. 1996: Compiler received Bartlett ODELL's pension file, for service the TN Militia during the War of 1812. Bartlett, Marshall's father, had been awarded two Bounty Land warrants from the final B.L. Act in 1855. Elizabeth filed in 1871 for a widow's pension; at that time her residence was given as the home of M.L. ODELL...11 miles west of Tazewell, Claiborne Co., TN. From the documents contained in this file, compiler believed that Elizabeth made her home with Marshall until she died in October, 1873. July, 1996: Receipt of the Civil War Widow's Pension File for "Sarah M. widow of Marshall L. O'Dell", from the National Archives, revealed the information that Marshall had applied for and had been granted an invalid's Pension for his Civil War service sometime between November, 1882 and 1890. In July, 1890, Marshall tendered a "Declaration for Original Invalid Pension Under the Act of June 27, 1890." In that application, he states that he has received a pension under Certificate No. 430-594. He apparently was attempting to obtain increased benefits under the new Act of Congress. Among the documents dealing with the earlier application for pension is a report of service and disability from the Office of the Adjutant General. That report states that Marshall was reported absent from his company due to illness from Aug., 1862 to Feb., 1863. Then on 30 April 1863, the record reads, "deserter on account of being absent April 1/63. June 30/63 present" with remark, "Returned to his Compy from being absent sick May 30/63; was tried by the Provost of the regt for absence without leave and acquitted." He was mustered out of the army 15 March 1865 at Wilmington, NC. The 1890 Declaration Application describes Marshall ODELL as he appeared at 57 years old... "height, 6 feet 1 inches; complexion Fair, hair, Dark; eyes Blue." The symptoms of his disability are listed as -- "Cattarh In head and Rheumatis in Back & Limbs & General Disability Totally Disabled to Work With out Pain & Misery." In January, 1898, the Office of Pensions sent a form to Marshall to update his file. On that form Marshall responded to questions concerning his first wife and the names and birth dates of his children who were still living. Marshall confirmed that he and Sarah EDWARDS were married in Claiborne County in 1869 by Wm. Williams. He lists by name seven children still living and gives the birth date of each. To the questions "Were you previously married? If so, please state the name of your former wife and date and place of her death or divorce.", Marshall answered with "Surreny Dec Jan 19 186- Claiborne Co Tenn." (It should be noted that one form appears to bear the actual signature of Marshall, but all other places calling for his signature show his name with "His X Mark"). It seems apparent that Marshall could not write; therefore his answers were written by some other person. (David HOPPER, a brother-in-law to Marshall, takes an oath on behalf of Sarah's attempt to obtain a widow's pension, that his sister, "Sereny Odell" and Marshall were married "about the year 1857," and that Serena died 19 January 1869.) A new Pension Act was passed February 6, 1907; once more Marshall files a new declaration for benefits. On this application Marshall gives his age as 74 years, his esidence as "Goin, Claiborne County, Tenn." He reports that "he...is the identical person who was enrolled at Barbourville KY,...on the 6th day of March, 1862, as a corporal, in Co. E 6th Regiment of Tenn. Inft." Earlier documents state that Marshall enrolled as a private, and there is no evidence within the file that he had been promoted to any other rank. His tombstone inscription shows "Cpl. Marshall L. Odel." Some documents show that Marshall enrolled at "Cumberlandford," Ky. It seems ironic that Marshall's younger brother, Lacy O'Dell, died on 18 March 1862 at "Camp Cumberland Ford," Ky--just 12 days after Marshall's enlistment. Lacy was a member of the 2nd Tennessee Volunteer Infantry and had been in the army since 25 October 1861. Could Lacy have been influential in Marshall's enlistment? Is the timing of Marshall's enlistment significant in relation to his younger brother's illness and death? Could that illness have been the reason that Marshall chose to enroll at Cumberland Ford at that time? Among the many affidavits on Marshall's and Sarah's behalf is one from Elisha J. Odell, a resident of Mercer County, IL on 14 Jan. 1908. Elisha (who appears as "E. Jordan O'Dell" on other documents) swears that he is the brother of Marshall and that he was born 15 August 1827. He further states that Marshall was born sometime during the year 1832. Elisha reports that there are no known family records of their births, but that he had always been told that Marshall was about 5 years younger than he. He also reports that a sister was born between the two brothers. (Elizabeth Mahala O'Dell, born about 1830). 21 Feb. 1908, Marshall L. KINCAID takes oath that he and Marshall O'Dell have been intimate friends from early childhood, and that his friend, Marshall, was born one day after KINCAID. He gives his own birth as 10 April 1832; Marshall's as 11 April 1832. Marshall L. O'Dell was dropped from the Pension Files of the U.S. Department of Interior 04 OCT 1909. The "Drop Order and Report" contained in Sarah's file states. "Sir: The name of the above-described pensioner, who was last paid at $20 per month to Aug 4, 1909, has this day been dropped from the roll of this agency...pensioner.... died Sep. 4, 1909...". Marshall's widow, Sarah M. (EDWARDS) O'DELL, filed for widow's pension 20 September 1909.

General Notes (Wife)

[bobspu.ged]

BIO: The "Old Speedwell Families, Revised" ref. gives the first wife of Marshall O'DELL as "Sarah HOPPER (1837-1926)", then on p. 235 it states that Sarah EDWARDS married Marshall O'DELL. Marriage records say the first wife was "Serena HOPPER". Compiler suspects that the Sarah O'DELL (1837-1926) who is buried near Marshall's grave in the HOPPER cemetery is Sarah EDWARDS, his second wife. Serena died about 1869 and is probably buried in the same cemetery, but her grave was not found. Per Lawrence EDWARDS' book, Sarah was the daughter of Jeptha EDWARDS, I (son of Spencer EDWARDS and Katie RIDDLE). On her tombstone, Sarah's date of birth is given as "1837", however in filing for increased pension benefits in 1916, Sarah gave her birthdate as "March 16, 1842". This agrees with the age she gives herself on the same form, "Seventy Four Years 5 mo. and 4 Days". On an earlier form for the Bureau of Pensions in 1909, Sarah reported that she was 67 years old; again, this agrees with the 1842 birthdate. This would mean that Sarah was about 44 years old when her youngest child, Nancy B., was born in 1886 (as reported by Marshall in his Pension File documents). Sarah's age was reported as 27 on the 1870 census; this would nearly agree with the birthdate she gave for the pension application. Marshall O'DELL served in the Union Army from March, 1862 until his discharge in March, 1865. Per his claims for Invalid Pension, he spent much of the time in ill health. He filed claims and was granted military pension from about 1890 until his death in September, 1909. At that time, Sarah filed for widow's pension and apparently received benefits until her death in 1927. Among the people filing affidavits on her behalf were David HOPPER, brother of Marshall's first wife, Serena, and M.C. KECK. Witnesses for Sarah and/or these affiants included P.E. CHEATAM, F.N. CHEATAM, Eli KECK, Suda COLE, J.H. ROUSE and S.O. BEASON. The "DROP-REPORT-PENSIONER" form in Sarah's file reads; "Mar 10, 1927. The name of the above described pensioner who was last paid at the rate of $30 per month to Feb 4, 1927 has this day been dropped from the roll because of death Feb 4 1927". Pensioner is recorded as "Sarah M. O'DELL", Goin, Tenn. Route #1". August 1996: Found on the 1850 Census for Claiborne County, TN at LDS Library, Arden, NC....Sarah M. EDWARDS, the first child of Jeptha and Sarah M. EDWARDS. She was 7 years old as of 11 OCT 1850. This would agree with the 1842 date of birth. Although Jeptha's wife's name in the EDWARDS books was given as Matilda GOFORTH, this census would hint that her name may be Sarah Matilda and that her daughter was named for her.

General Notes for Child Martha Ann O'dell

[bobspu.ged]

BIO: Marshall Love O'DELL, in completing an update form for the Pension Bureau, named each of his living children and their dates of birth. Martha Ann's was among those listed. Lawrence EDWARDS, in the first book about the Speedwell Families, reported that Martha Ann O'DELL was the first wife of Spencer EDWARDS, the son of McKendry EDWARDS. There was no data for Martha Ann or for her husband provided in that book. Marjories WALSH, in her article about the Bartlett O'DELL families, included Martha Ann as one of the children of Marshall, Ms. WALSH's direct ancestor. Although her father cited a specific birthdate for Martha Ann, her age as shown on the 1880 census was "7". This would calculate to a year of birth of 1873 +/- a year.

General Notes for Child Mary A. O'dell

[bobspu.ged]

BIO: Mary A.'s name does not appear in any of the data that compiler has received from Marjorie WALSH or Ben L. O'DELL. She appears as "3/12" on the 15 June 1880 enumeration of the Claiborne County census, and she is clearly classified as "Daughter." It is possible that this child did not survive, therefore was not known by descendents of this family. There is a grave in the Hopper Cemetery on Edwards Rd. near Tazewell which is unreadable, except for the name "MOLLIE". This grave is very close to those of Joseph A., Julia Ann and Marshall and Sarah O'DELL. Compiler suspects this may be the grave of Mary A. O'DELL.

REF: 1. U.S. Census 1880 TN; Claiborne Co.; 12th C.D.; ED #110; p 18; #154/#155. MF #T9-1248. 2. Hopper Cemetery (On Edwards Rd, near junction of Leatherwood Hollow Rd., per Paul JOHNSON's " Claiborne County...Cemeteries.") Grave marked only with "MOLLIE."
