Bio and Links
My father was descended from the pioneer families of the Crab Orchard (Elkhorn)/Rock Falls/Red Brush School area of Ray Co., MO. I have multiple connections to the O'Dell and Tarwater lines, among others. I don't live in Ray Co., but still visit several times a year.

I'm all for preserving headstones (I transcribed all of the stones at O'Dell Cemetery in Ray County several years back), but more important to me is preserving the histories of the people themselves. I'm interested in all surnames at O'Dell - the main ones are O'Dell, McAfee, McKissack, Brown, Roe, Riggs, and Woods. I'm also interested in the Whitton, Slover, Clark, Hall, Harris, Clevenger, and Tarwater lines...and, well, pretty much any and all of the old families of the area.

On my maternal side, I'm descended from the Shepard, Harold, Briscoe, and Hays families of Saline County, MO.

RE: Arvid Theodore
Is it possible Odessa went by nickname, Lucille? Lucille Sundeen's middle initial on her death record is "O".

RE: Arvid Theodore
I often research the Sundeen families, looking for a missing great-uncle.

All information I would have would be from public documents.

I have researched an Arvid Theodore Sundeen (1901-1983). He was married to a Lucille and they lived in Kansas City, MO. She died in 1977; although it might be possible they separate earlier; I have no info on that. It is possible Arvid remarried but I also have no info on that.

I do not have Odessa McAfee in my file.

Best wishes.

It is very strange, like they just disappeared. I did find my Father on the 1930 census, (I think it was that one) anyway he lived as a boarder in Idaho. Roberts family I think I found in Lubbock Texas. Interesting that my grandfather was divorced. I know Florence passed away early. Recently I found out my father was married twice prior to my mother, both ended in divorce. Question, say I believe I found Robert's family in Texas. I'm apprehensive about contacting them, would you write and mail it? That way if they wanted to stay "disappeared" it wouldn't be as threatening as a phone call? I've thought about this for many years.....

Hi Cheryl! Unfortunately I don't know. I met him twice only when I was very little. He lived in Hemet California at the time, but later records show he lived and passed away in Long Beach California. I keep hitting road blocks in my sporadic searching. Strange, they even disappeared in one of the census records. Perhaps they weren't home when the census workers came by? Years ago I found a Patricia who was my father's brother's sons daughter, but I moved, and lost contact with her. She was searching for info on our grandfather. I wish I could find her again. I sent a photo of me and my grandfather which she showed to her Dad, who verified that was his grandfather! I really would like to talk to him! (Sorry to ramble on) If you find anything let me know. Hope you are well, and take care! Robin
