Birth year is approximate. Odessa appears in the Oct. 12, 1850 United States census with an age of 1 year which suggest a birth year of 1849. According to Henry Howe's "Historical Collections of Ohio," her name was Odessa Malvina. According to Lois Beachy Underhill's biography, "The Woman Who Ran for President," "Odessa Maldiva" was one of two infants who died before her sister Victoria was born. The 1850 census proves this is incorrect. If there were two infants who died before Victoria Woodhull's birth, it would've been Delia and Hester Ann, not Delia and Odessa. Anna Claflin's Bible which could clear up these discrepancies in names and birth order has not been made public.

It's likely she died in Ohio, probably in Homer, Licking, Ohio.
