Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the author of the 400+ page book "Odom Oracle" covering 6 generations, from about 1815-post WWI years, of the Odom family from Middle Tennessee westward. Many of my contributions to Findagrave have been related to this book and the over 3000 family members mentioned therein. I have posted vitals directly from either death certificates or pictures of tombstones. I also wrote a true crime book in 2010 based on a 1916 murder in Cannon County, Tennessee, "Murder on Fodderstack Knob".

Presently I am working on a book about men who registered during the three World War I Draft Registrations. In addition to my own family gravesites I have also added men and families that are included in the veteran listings I am currently writing biographies about.

My husband and I live in Osceola County, Florida.

Would you please move Edward to the Paris City Cemetery in Henry Co, TN?
Note his death record only says Paris, TN See his obit notes buried at the City Cemetery.
Appreciate your help.

Thank You!
Just a note of thanks Sherrie for being so kind in transferring management of my relatives over to me. It's been an incredible journey of discovery throughout the last 40+ years of family research. I have so many relatives buried in Banks Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery.

Robert Austin Huggins
Hi, Sherrie, I noticed on Find A Grave on the page you had created on S. Clarissa Huggins, you had listed siblings who were children of Thomas R. And Matilda Huggins. It indicated Robert Austin was a half brother to Clarissa and the other siblings. Just thought you might like to know that Robert Austin Huggins was the son of William A. Huggins, not Thomas. It can get very confusing with that group of Huggins because both men's wives were named Matilda! Thomas married Matilda Evans. William A. married Matilda E. Smith!

RE: Newell Trapp
Thank you so much for relaying this information concerning my uncle!

Interesting that you found him in Florida. I have some doubt though anything's possible! If you find more information, please pass this along to me!

My uncle made a determined effort to disappear and changed his name in the early 60's. Numerous times my aunt hired private investigators to search for him and nothing turned up. Nobody really knows why he decided it necessary to disappear, only speculations. I can't imagine after all that time he would have reverted back to his real name.

As for the discrepancy in his birth year, he likely had to change that date in order to qualify for the military. The 1920 date is correct according to his family (mother & siblings).

I seriously doubt that he might be still living; if he were he would 96 years old. He was the eldest sibling, none of whom are living now. His oldest sister died at about 87 years old, most of the rest of the siblings were 70 or less (1 half brother lived to his mid-70's). His mother died in her late 60's.

It's my opinion that he lived and died under his assumed name. He could have remarried and even had other children. Likely only God & Newell knows what really might have become of him!

Just want to say thanks again for helping with the Bryan family. The obituary will be priceless for my nephew and finding Emerly helps a lot too, I am still working on the Bryan family. I don't think that my brother-law knew much about either side of the family going back that far. Are you related to the family? If so then you would be kin some place in the line to my nephew.

Emerly Bryan
I think that has to be her in the Donnell Cemetery,
1880 census matches her birth date and we know she died before 1900. Personally I would not hesitate to link her to husband William. Everything matches up including the marriage record and other family buried there.
