Son of Elijah Keen Burt and Logenia Hastine (Jean) Schrimpshire Burt.

He married Ada Kate Fitzgerald on
15 November 1924 in Laurel, Jones County, MS

Odis had very little formal education, having gone to
work in Stonewall, MS cotton mill at a very young age
to help support his widowed mother and siblings.
He was a very good self taught mechanic. He worked
